Community Dry Grad 2016 Planning

Each year our community puts on a Dry Grad event for the graduating students from all three of Chilliwack's secondary schools (G.W. Graham Secondary, Sardis Secondary, and Chilliwack Secondary). Students from each of the secondary schools attend their own school's Prom on June 29th. When all of the Proms end, usually around 10:00 - 11:00pm, all of the students head to the Landing Sports Centre where all of Chilliwack's grads get to enjoy a fantastic event together (11:00pm - 5:00am). There are several meetings where volunteers prepare and plan for the community Dry Grad. If you are interested in volunteering, please feel free to attend the meetings listed below at the Landing Sports Centre, 45530 Spadina Ave. If you have any questions about the community Dry Grad event please contact Christine Cutajar cakescutajar@hotmail.com or Eleanor Meldrum rmeldrum@shaw.ca.
