Letter to the Editor: Many helped make OV Project Graduation successful

We would like to take this opportunity to publically thank all of the generous community members and businesses that supported Project Graduation 2017. This community continually amazes us with your generosity. To have everyone pitch in and liberally donate for our seniors truly demonstrates the tremendous support the community provides our students at Otter Valley.
The event provided a safe and fun night for all involved. The evening started with a hypnotist show and then a banquet provided by the junior class parents and students. Parents made homemade marinara sauce and alfredo sauces, cooking all day! Seniors took the time to enjoy a meal together and share memories. We then tried something new and had actors come in for a Murder Mystery. Seniors and their guests then loaded buses for The Fun Spot in Lake George, N.Y. Seniors drove go carts, roller bladed, played laser tag and mini golf. 
Due to the community’s generous donations, each senior was given a Project Graduation t-shirt and various prizes through a raffle during the banquet. Senior parents provided a delicious and full grab and go breakfast at 3 a.m. Parents then picked up their students at 3:30 a.m.!
We have a truly amazing community — we are proud and touched to be a part of it.
Thank you,
Meredith McCartney, Cathy Louttit
Project Graduation Co-Chairs
