Souhegan High School Project Graduation 2014 thanks you

To the Editor:

On June 13, approximately 160 graduates from Souhegan High School attended the 2014 Project Graduation celebration at the Hampshire Dome. Project Graduation is an all-night, organized, substance-free, adult-supervised, post-
graduation party. Thanks to all of our corporate sponsors and community donations and support, the graduates enjoyed a wide variety of entertainment, activities and food throughout the event. Many prizes were awarded during the evening, including televisions, tablets, dorm refrigerators, printers, wireless speakers, gift baskets, dorm accessories and many gift cards to local restaurants and retail shops. It was a wonderful and safe way to celebrate graduation, and it would not have been possible without the tremendous generosity of the community. The SHS class of 2014, along with the 2014 Project Graduation committee, would like to thank the following businesses and individuals for their generous donations and sponsorship. In addition we would like to recognize the many volunteers who set up, cleaned up and staffed the Project Graduation event – it truly was a community effort, and we thank you for your donation of time and effort!
