Project Graduation 2007

The Project Graduation event for Charles County Public Schools graduating seniors will be held from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. June 4 and 5 at the College of Southern Maryland.

The event is sponsored by The Chemical People of Charles County and is held after graduation ceremonies to offer seniors a chemical-free place to celebrate. Graduating seniors from Maurice J. McDonough, Westlake and Thomas Stone high schools will attend the event scheduled for June 4. Henry E. Lackey High School and La Plata High School graduates will attend the June 5 event.

Activities include dancing, swimming, make-your-own DVDs, defender dome and gladiator games, moon bounce, Lazer Tag and other carnival-type games. Each graduating senior will receive a complimentary beach towel and scope photograph key chain. Free food and drinks will be provided, and attendees are eligible to win prizes, such as televisions, radios and mini-refrigerators, through random ticket drawings.

Ticket books for the event will be distributed by each high school for all graduating seniors. These tickets allow graduates and one guest entrance to the event. Attendees must have a ticket to enter the CSM campus, and participants who leave the event will not be allowed to return.

The event is chaperoned and monitored by law enforcement officers. The Chemical People of Charles County have sponsored Project Graduation for more than 20 years to provide graduates with a safe place to celebrate.
