Project Graduation will be coordinating "Memory Lane" again this year in much the way it was re-invented outdoors last year. This is something that has been a special tradition at PG for many years, and students, parents, and residents were all able to enjoy it last year when it was on display at the high school.
Please make sure your poster is dropped off before May 17th at the WHS front office or at 54 Water Street by May 17th (front porch in the bin). You will get it back after the celebration.
Please adhere to the size restrictions below.
Design horizontally – 22(h) x 28(w) inches is the traditional poster board size, although many vinyl banners will be slightly larger. Please *no taller than 36" high, no longer than 48" wide*. Since they will be outdoors, we require that the posters/banners be printed on weather-proof vinyl or laminated with heavy-duty laminate.
Include the student's name on the front of the banner (also include a label with name on the back upper left corner of the poster).
For *vinyl banners*, we recommend grommets be placed in the corners to assist with hanging on the fences. (Don’t forget about grommet placement related to the photos you choose for the corners.)
For *laminated posters*, grommets are best avoided as it is a route for water to get in. We have adhesive clear plastic hangers for hanging these.
Be aware that handmade collage posters, although made with much love, may not weather the outdoor elements well even if laminated. We strongly suggest you order an outdoor vinyl banner with grommets, as these hold up best.
Examples of last year's posters can be found below or at https://photos.app.goo.gl/K2Cvg9Deg4fdM3qN9
