Project Graduation is a new name for what has been known as Senior Party since 1984. To mark the 30th anniversary and the community’s success in keeping our kids safe, we began using the name “Project Graduation” in 2013 to emphasize the community’s role and de-emphasize the “party,” But make no mistake, the event will remain as fun as ever!
Regardless of the name, the point has always been for parents and the entire community to celebrate the success of the graduating senior class at Amherst-Pelham Regional High School by sending them off to great things with a fun and safe night keeps them off the roads and enjoying a final night together as a class.
The event has traditionally been help outdoors, sometimes ending early due to weather. In 2013, a tropical storm forced parent organizers to find an indoor venue or face cancellation, and the Mullins Center came to the rescue! The result was very successful, and now we are avoiding all the stress, risk, and extra cost of planning for an outdoor event, and will continue to hold it in the Mullins Center. The indoor party is largely the same as it has been in recent years, and is based on a long tradition shaped by parent volunteers who have learned from their experiences and passed a dozen or so binders to successive committees for more than a generation.
