Project Graduation 2019: Great, Safe Fun For All

Project Graduation 2019 was another great success in both the minds of the graduating seniors and their parents. Held each year immediately following the graduation ceremony, Lemon Bay High School seniors have one last fling before they scatter to pursue their lives.

The all-night party was held once again at the Englewood United Methodist Church and the students who attended were locked-in for a busy, fun and memorable night with their classmates. Hidden behind the great time the grads have, was the main reason for the lock-in – to give them a safe drug and alcohol-free environment to celebrate. The theme this year was Winter Wonderland and the hard-working committee of volunteers transformed the church’s Fellowship Hall into a magical world to spend their last hours together as a class.

Seventy percent of the 273 graduates attended and found plenty to entertain them: a mechanical bull, money machine, rock climbing wall, gaming truck, bungee run, obstacle course, hungry hippo chow-down, photo booth, plenty of food, a DJ for the music and a hypnotist. They received a goodie bag full of great items, including local gift cards. They also picked up their mail from the “post office” - cards, letters and best wishes from family and friends. There was the walk down Memory Lane framed by photo collages prepared by their families. Stage performer Norris Shelton, hip hop artist Buckey (pictured) and DJ Richard Hunt former LBHS graduates who volunteered their time to provide entertainment.

The party was planned by graduating class parents and many others who remain involved over the years. All costs are paid by numerous fund-raising efforts and the generous support of local businesses and the Englewood community. Local restaurants such as Beyond the Sea, Bobarino’s Pizza, Country Hound Café, End Zone, Farlow’s, Wink’s, Paraiso, Lighthouse Grill, Nicola’s and Mango Bistro, Publix, Walmart, churches, community clubs such as the Elks, Lions, American Legion, Masons, Rotary and Moose, a large number of local businesses and private individuals donate all the items needed to insure the LBHS graduates had a night to remember and the safe environment to start their tomorrows.
