Safe Grad vs Dry Grad? 0
Rather than argue the semantics on who said what, who did what, who is right and who is wrong, I would rather commend and wholeheartedly THANK the volunteers of both committees past, present and future, for giving your time and energy to providing a safe environment for our graduating classes.
I am thankful that our grads have the option to choose to go and celebrate the milestone of finishing school, regardless of their drink of choice, or destination of choice.
Grad night and the party that follows, provides our grads one last opportunity to be all together to toast, cheer, hug, dance, reminisce and party the night away.
I am the proud mother of a 2012 Lacombe composite high school graduate and a 2010 grad, both who chose to attend safe grad and I fully support their choices.
I am also a lifelong member of this community, and a person who used to answer 911 calls, and believe me, not having to worry about loved ones being involved in an impaired or falling victim to a drinking related collision gives me great peace of mind.
I am also a member and former president of our local MADD chapter, and we give financial support to dry grad and are thankful that the youth of today are getting the message and making better choices than we did in our youth.
Looking back, I have to say, I wish we had these choices when I graduated. Some of us might still be alive today.
So, cheers and congratulations to our graduates - you did it! And THANK YOU to all those who are involved with both Dry Grad AND Safe Grad!
