Project Graduation Friday for McCulloch County seniors

Project Graduation 2000 is scheduled to be held on Friday, May 26 (tonight) after graduation ceremonies for the Senior Classes of 2000. The event will be held at the Curtis Field Airport for approximately 100 McCulloch County graduating seniors and their guests. The evening will begin immediately after graduation with lights, music and dancing to a live deejay. There will be an abundance of food and snacks to please the graduates’ appetites. A casino will be open until 3:30 a.m. where seniors and their guests can win fake money. At the end of the evening the “money” can be used by seniors to purchase prizes at an auction. Door prizes will be given away every 30 minutes, and all seniors will receive a “Bustin’ Out” Party 2000 T-shirt to commemorate their night of fun. Several games will continue throughout the evening. The “Rocky Mountain Climber” is an inflatable mountain that seniors can climb, using professional climbing gear. The “Bungee Run” simulates real bungee jumping in a horizontally adapted game. On the “Sticky Fly Wall,” the graduates will dress up in hook and loop suits and bounce as high as they can onto a sticky wall. The “Adrenaline Rush” is an obstacle course containing sheer walls, inclined tubes, rock climbs, log jams and tunnels. Other games include a bucking bull ride, pool, air hockey, foosball, ping-pong, electronic video games, basketball and electronic darts. The doors will be locked at 10:30 p.m., at which time no one will be allowed in. During the course of the evening, anyone who leaves must sign out and will not be allowed to return. All seniors are urged to attend this safe, alcohol-free, drug-free graduation party. The approximate cost for a successful Project Graduation is $15,000. The committee continues to ask for monetary donations to help with these expenses. In addition, workers are needed for Friday night. Please contact Chuck Bailey or Tanya Williams at the high school if you would like to help in any way.
