Dry Grad and Prom Information

The Grand March: June 25th at 12:30 pm at Riverside Park. This is an event for grads and family members. Grads will walk across the stage with a special person, if they choose, followed by a single dance. There will be an opportunity for grads to take photos with friends and family members, and Hummingbird Drones have generously offered to take a large group photo of the grads. There is no fee and no registration required to attend the Grand March.

 

Prom/Dry Grad: The dinner, prom and dry grad events are on June 25th from 5:00 pm to 1:00 am, and they will take place at the Coast Hotel and Conference Centre in the Hilltop room. This event includes a ‘promenade’ and a dry grad party with games, dancing, prizes, and entertainment. This is an event for grads only, and a ticket is required (The registration deadline has passed but please reach out to us if you haven’t registered and you would like to come!). A more detailed agenda will follow.

 

We will require volunteers and later this month, we will distribute a sign-up sheet for various volunteer duties.
