Project Graduation is a safe, all-night post-graduation celebration which began in 1979 in Maine as a result of the death of seven individuals who lost their lives throughout the commencement season. The event has spread to all 50, states providing safe and fun-filled post-graduation activities that last all night in a drug- and alcohol-free environment.
The Safe Grad Event, sponsored by Tri-Town Youth Services located in Deep River, is planned, organized, and financed by parents, civic groups, and local businesses.
