Grad Bash

Grad Bash is a parent-chaperoned, all night post-graduation party held immediately following our Graduation ceremony, this year on Thursday May 30, 2019.

Transportation, food, entertainment and prizes are provided! The location of the party is kept secret from the students to heighten the level of excitement – think of it as one of those mystery vacations. Historically, Grad Bash has been a huge success, thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated by the students.

While there will be many graduation parties throughout the weeks following graduation, this event is unique in bringing together the entire graduating class, for probably the last time since some will depart for school or other adult life opportunities during the summer. It is our goal to help our graduates capture all that “last day ever [high school]” energy and enthusiasm by providing them a fun, safe venue to celebrate, relax and have a genuinely good time.

Planning and hosting Grad Bash takes many volunteers in many different capacities.  Please consider volunteering to really contribute and be a part of the last event for the Class of 2019.  Attend our meetings for the latest volunteer news!  You can find all our volunteer needs right here.

Silent Auction and Euchre Tournament

Grad Bash 2019 is hosting a Silent Auction and Euchre Tournie on Saturday February 2, starting at 6:30pm at Main Street Pub on West Main Street.  This event is open to anyone over 21 – sign up here to play/attend: Euchre Tournament 2019. The entry fee is $20. Sign up now as there are only 32 spots available.
They do still need some additional volunteers to help at this event AND more silent auction items.  Their past Silent Auctions have been the most successful when they had large ticket items and especially when they were able to offer a week stay at a vacation home. If anyone has a vacation property, lake house, or time share at which could donate a week’s stay — Grad Bash would GREATLY appreciate it!  Sign up to volunteer or donate here.
