We have a great tradition in Lyme-Old Lyme. For many years, parents have hosted an all-night “Safe
Graduation Party” for the senior class. The goal is to provide a safe, substance free party in a “secret
location” where students have the opportunity to share food, music, entertainment and memories with
their classmates — their last night together as a class!
For as long as we have provided these parties for our seniors, our community has enjoyed trouble-free graduation nights.
While the party is hosted entirely by parents of seniors, it takes a community effort to help our children
remain safe and supervised while celebrating this wonderful milestone. Funding for the party comes
entirely from fundraisers, donations from local businesses, and organizations, and parent and individual
contributions. Although Lyme-Old Lyme High School and Regional School District 18’s Board of
Education support this event, they do not contribute any financial support. We rely on fundraisers and
donations from PARENTS OF SENIORS to make this event a success.
Donations can be mailed to: Lyme/Old Lyme Safe Graduation, PO Box 903, Old Lyme, CT 06371

Don’t get left out in the cold!
Get ready for early spring spectating! Those first few weeks of baseball, lacrosse, and spring soccer can get pretty chilly. Stay warm with this two-sided stadium blanket ($40) — water resistant one side, warm and cozy fleece on the other. The folding spectator chair ($25) has two cupholders. Both come in blue and white and sport the “Lyme Old Lyme” pawprint logo. To order, email Karen Winters at email@example.com.
