This year’s Similkameen Elementary Secondary School grad class are chasing a goal, and the fact that school start has been delayed isn’t slowing them down a bit.

They started their fund raising efforts on Labour Day with a car wash at Fas Gas in Keremeos, raising $660.

The group followed that with a movie night on Friday, September 19 at Victory Hall.

This week the grads will host a dance at Victory Hall for students in grades 8- 12. The event takes place from 6:30  until 9:30 p.m. and will feature a disc jockey – DJ Rick – from Kelowna.

This year’s class contains 30 students, who  also have plans for another dance at Halloween in addition to a bottle drive.

“We’re planning to go to Mexico,” said Gagan Lasser, who said a number of the class were actively pursuing the goal. A number of grads are also volunteering community service, offering their assistance at Sizzlefest on Saturday, September 20.
