If elections make you crave comfort food, the parent committee for Waterford High School's Safe Graduation Party has what you need. To capitalize on Election Day traffic, organizers are holding a bake sale at Waterford Town Hall on Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
If you'd like to donate baked goods to ensure they have a steady supply to sell throughout the day, you can drop them off at Town Hall on November 4. Simply Ivy's Homemade is one local business that has also stepped up to the plate to help out.
This is just the first of many fundraisers the parents who volunteer to put on this party for the class of 2014 will be holding—and they need all the help they can get because the event receives no funds from the school. The party follows graduation, whisking students off by bus to a secret location to celebrate until dawn in a drug- and alcohol-free environment.
Future fundraisers parents have planned include a wreath sale and brick sale. The wreath sale will be held in advance of the holidays. Order forms should be available soon too for bricks, which can be engraved with the names of students, past and present, in memory of alumni as well as present and future graduates. The bricks will be placed around school grounds.
