Reporter Elaine Thompson wrote an excellent story about Project Graduation, its inception in the State of Maine and the schools that provide a "Project Graduation" or similar alcohol free, chemical free post-prom celebrations. Westborough's Police Chief, Al Gordon, talks about the benefit of Project Graduation and Charlie Katz, class of 2016, talks of the fun he had.

May 6 - Coin Collection at E.L. Harvey (the dump)

On May 6 volunteers from Project Graduation will be at E.L. Harvey, fondly known as the Dump, collecting surplus coins to support Project Graduation.  Volunteers will have receptacles to place, pour or toss coins you may have in your pockets, cars or homes, all for this wonderful cause.  Everyone is welcome to help soften the clanging of coins by adding paper dollars to the mix, or even including checks if you wish. Thanks to Harvey's and our wonderful volunteers, this event was a huge success last year and helped raise money for Project Graduation.  Please help make this another great event.

Memory Lane Photos and Posters - Get them in now

One of the most appreciated parts of Project Graduation is Memory Lane.  Photos of the graduates as young children, and today, are displayed in a creative format requiring graduates to guess which child is which student.  Photos of groups, teams, friends, etc. are posted.  Seniors and parents/guardians are encouraged to submit a senior poster that can be on display for the night - to go home with the graduate at the end. 
 
For more information, see the Memory Lane document in the Documents section.
