San Andreas, CA — Work is underway on planning Sober Grad Night parties for both the 2007 graduating classes of Bret Harte and Calaveras High schools.
CHP officer Mike Maddox says the parties provide a chemical free place for students to be with their friends on graduation night. The Sober Grad Foundation is a coalition of parents that sponsor the parties.
The fun planned for this year includes a rock climbing wall, casino area, a bungee wall, magicians, a hypnotist and temporary tattoos.
Last year 193 from students from Bret Harte attended and 241 attended from Calaveras.
This year Bret Harte graduates on June 1 and will hold its party at Frogtown. Calaveras graduates June 6 and the party is at the high school.
Volunteers are needed for a variety of tasks. For more information, contact Kathy Mazzaferro for Bret Harte at (209) 334-7562 and Cynthia Weiland for Calaveras at (209) 772-8586.
