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.

Thank you Dumpers! May 5 - Coin (and large bills and check) Collection at E.L. Harvey (the dump)

On May 5 volunteers from Project Graduation were at E.L. Harvey, fondly known as "the Dump," collecting surplus coins (and other currency or negotiable items) to support Project Graduation.  Volunteers had receptacles to place, pour or toss coins  "dumpers" may have had in their pockets, cars or homes, all for this wonderful cause.  The "Dumpers" donated over $1,500 during the course of the day, with comments wishing the graduates the best, appreciating the purpose of Project Graduation and recalling how much fun they had in their Project Graduations.

THANK YOU WESTBOROUGH DUMPERS!!

Attention Everyone: 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.
