Send-off Ceremony for College-bound Students
We are pleased to see that 12 students in our community will be entering four-year colleges this fall. On behalf of the community, we are planning to hold a brief “Send Off Ceremony.”
Sunday, August 1st, at 10:30 AM
Your presence will be a huge encouragement to these students, as well as to the younger kids who look up to their seniors as role models. Please remember to bring your kids.
Your lunch will be served after the ceremony.
You are requested to wear masks and practice social distancing.
