Every teen dreams of having their own wheels. Thanks to Project Graduation, two lucky seniors at HRV will have that wish fulfilled if they attend the senior graduation night party planned for June 7.
Project Graduation is an all-night event put on for HRVHS graduating seniors by parent volunteers, ensuring a safe and fun evening party open to all after the ceremony comes to an end.
To help fund this year’s event, which includes food, music, dancing, casino games, movies and other fun activities, the Project Graduation team has come up with a great fundraiser – a car and scooter give-away.
The soon-to-be-won 2010 SYM Fiddle II scooter and 2002 Honda Civic were donated to Project Graduation in hope of encouraging more teens to attend the drug/alcohol free event.
Five-dollar tickets are being sold each Wednesday during lunch at HRV in the commons and adults or non-seniors may buy tickets on behalf of any senior at HRV. Non-seniors are not eligible to win.
Dozens of local retail shop owners and private donors have already offered cash, prizes, supplies and specialty items to help support the Project Graduation event. Organizer Kathy McLean notes that additional contributions and donated items are still needed to help complete the hoped-for activity lists and prize packages. Each senior attending will take away at least one “care package”.
For more information, contact Kathy McLean at 541-387-3569 or visit the Project Graduation 2013 Facebook page for updates.
Donations may be made out to Project Graduation 2013, and mailed to 1767 12th St., Ste. 178, Hood River, OR 97031.

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"
‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
