Project Graduation 2014 seeks support

Senior parents of the Hood River Valley High School graduating class of 2014 need the community’s help to make the all-night drug- and alcohol-free graduation party a success.

This year the party will be held June 6 in the space annually donated by the Hood River Elks.

Donation letters went out in November and some businesses have already sent a donation.

“We greatly appreciate any and all types of donations to make the evening a fun and memorable night for our students,” said one of the parent coordinators, Wendy Herman.

Students pay a $35 fee to attend the party, but that does not cover all the prizes, food and activities the parents fundraise to provide.

Those who have received a donation letter and haven’t contributed are encouraged to do so if possible. Businesses who would like to donate but didn’t receive a letter may contact Herman at 541-490-6828 or wherman@hoodriver

electric.net.

All donations are tax-deductible and a tax receipt will be provided to the donor if needed.

Donations may be made to Project Graduation 2014, and mailed to 1767 12th St., #178, Hood River, OR 97031. Contact Herman to have your donation picked up.

Senior parents who have not attended a meeting but want to volunteer are encouraged to come to the committee’s next meeting at HRVHS library, 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22.

Contact Herman to sign up to volunteer or for future meeting dates. Information is also available at the HRVHS Project Graduation 2014 Facebook page.

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
