Grads fundraising with dance and poinsettia sale

October 28 marks the start of the Barriere Secondary annual Grad Poinsettia and Wreath Sale

A keen group of grads and parents have been busy planning and fund-raising for the dry grad dinner and dance event to be held May 24, 2014.

Kicking off the campaign was an enormously successful bottle drive held in July. The grad committee would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who donated empties and for the continued contributions.

Grads and parents have assisted with food service at the Wilson’s wedding and Huber anniversary party. In addition many grads and parents helped to mind the gates on the Sunday of the Provincial Winter Fair. These opportunities, and funds that will support the grads dinner and dance celebrations are appreciated.

Preparations for an Oct. 26, Halloween Dance are well underway,  with tickets being sold in advance by grad parents for $10 each, and also available at Barriere Auto Parts or at the door  for $12.  Music by Tony’s DJ Service  is said to be awesome, with fantastic light, laser and special effects . This ‘no minors’ event encourages adults to wear a Halloween costume and enjoy the evening of dancing and socializing. Doors open at 9 p.m.

Designated drivers will be available by donation, and adult participants are asked to be responsible role models for the grads by making arrangements for a safe ride home.

October 28 marks the start of the annual Grad Poinsettia and Wreath Sale. Be sure to order early for these lovely holiday products, with grads delivering within most local areas.
