Project Graduation seeking donations

(Lander, Wyo.) – Project Graduation, the all-night chemical free celebration for Lander graduates, is one of Lander’s most vital and positive traditions. Begun over 20 years ago, the event prevents injury and death from alcohol and drug-related incidents during the high-risk time for our teens. Project Graduation is sponsored by parent volunteers and the seniors themselves. Together, we raise the necessary funds to ensure that all graduating seniors from LVHS and Pathfinder are invited to attend the event and celebrate together—creating great memories of their graduation night.
