By Kennedy “Ken” Brigham, Staff Writer

The school year is almost over, and it’s time for the seniors to start wrapping up their lives as high schoolers. Project Graduation is being organized to give seniors one last night to spend time with friends before they go their separate ways.

“Project Graduation is one last night where everybody can get together, and you can see the kid that you maybe enjoyed playing softball with in third grade and never saw again,” Project Graduation committee member Julie Dunlap said.

Seniors from all high schools in Lawrence are invited to attend the party. Project Graduation will be held from 10 p.m-4 a.m. on Wednesday, May 22, at Abe & Jake’s Landing, 8 E. 6th St. Tickets cost $10, and food will be provided.

During the course of the night, prizes will be given away.

“I know that there are gift certificates for everything from tire rotations to massages to restaurants in town, nail salons, clothing stores, hair cuts, car washes, you name it,” Dunlap said. In order to win, you must be present.
