Dry Grad


Dry Grad is a spectacular and safe no alcohol or drugs end of High School party organized by the parents of graduating students. Since the inception of Dry Grad in 1989, there have been no fatalities in the Cowichan Valley on Grad night. After Cap & Gown, the kids are transported to the Shawnigan Lake Rec Centre for the Dry Grad Party.

NEXT MEETING:  Tuesday April 24th @ 7pm in the FKSS library – This is right before the garage sale so volunteers please come out to see how you can help!


Event date is coming FAST!  Loads of volunteers will be needed to move the LOADS of stuff we have from Mill Bay Storage!  We can start moving things over to the school at 3pm on Friday April 27th.  There will be a lot to move, sort and set up.  This is our last big fundraiser and WE NEED HELP!
There will be a ho
t dog stand as well – any one interested in manning that?  The grads will also be putting on a car wash so bring your dirty beasts!
We are also selling on Varage Sale!  If you have larger items to donate, please email a picture to britdani@shaw.ca
Our Garage Sale organizer is Celle Rikwerda – for questions please email her at gardentease@gmail.com


Sadly we have had to cancel the cookbook project due to lack of interest and sales. We received almost 100 wonderful recipes from 36 parents – thank you very much for your efforts!
A refund will be available:
– if you paid by eft a cheque will be issued (sorry Sabine!).
– if you paid by cheque, your cheque has not been cashed yet and will be destroyed.
– if you paid by cash, please get in touch and we’ll figure out the best way to get you your money.
Or how about this? Another option would be to donate your payment, or portion of it, to Dry Grad – and in return I’ll email you ALL THE RECIPES!  Now it won’t be as pretty as the cookbook, but you’ll have 100 amazing recipes!
Please contact Krista at klderksen@shaw.ca  and let me know what you would like to do.

A bin has been placed at Frances Kelsey today by Malahat Recycling. It is on the left hand side of the road as you drive up towards the school. Spread the word!!

We need to stress that no mattresses, couches, and garbage of any kind will be accepted. Apparently even though the list says no fridges, they are accepted.
