There will be a brief meeting following the Taco Dinner on April 26th at the Moose Lodge, and then Operation Graduation will meet EVERY Thursday up to graduation at the Brentwood at 6:00 p.m.
Reminder: Please save your VG receipts and your pharmacy share points as well. You may turn these in to Kim Thorp or put in any of the cans that are in local businesses in town. For more information on VG receipts, please contact Kim Thorp at 989.672.4079.
REMINDER TO PARENTS: Operation Graduation is a fun evening that is planned for your graduate. Without your help, and the help from the community, this event could not be possible. We are encouraging all parents to get involved, whether it is to help make phone calls, plan a fundraiser, or just help with collecting donations and buying gifts. We hope to see you at the next meeting on December 13th! Thank you!
On May 30, 2013, the Caro High School Class of 2013 will participate in their graduation ceremony. Following the ceremony, Operation Graduation 2013 will be held at the Brentwood to provide a school-sanctioned, safe, and alcohol/drug free celebration. This event will celebrate the graduating students and the journey they have made through our community, our schools, and our families. The Operation Graduation event will provide food, games, activities, and prizes to all graduates in attendance.
As in years past, Ken Beachy has generously offered to close the Brentwood to the public from 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM and make it available to our graduates for this event. We are asking for community support for this event. We need cash donations to fund the overall expenses and to purchase gifts. We are also seeking donations of merchandise to be given as prizes. Our goal is to have every graduate in attendance receive a gift valued at $50.00 or more. Suggestions include: small appliances, gift cards, certificates for services useful to a young adult, and of course, cash which will be used to purchase items of the type.
