Post-graduation party being planned
FLINT TWP. — Graduation time is fast approaching and that means fundraising also is ramping up for the annual Carman- Ainsworth post-graduation party. The township board recently shared a letter from a committee of parents seeking support from local business owners. The committee’s goal is to raise $15,000 needed to plan and produce the overnight graduation party which is held at the high school. The objective is “to provide a fun, safe and substance-free evening” for C-A graduates to celebrate their achievement. The chaperoned event includes games, food, pries and photo souvenirs. Prize and food donations are sought as well as business sponsors at donations levels from $50 to $1000 who will receive a Certificate of Appreciation, listing on CA’s Facebook and Twitter feeds and other recognition. Donations may be sent to the the attention of the Post Grad Party Committee, Carman-Ainsworth High School, 1300 N. Linden Road, Flint, 48532. — R.S.
