Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

The Windham High School Project Graduation 2018 Committee has been hard at work for several months, planning events and raising funds for a fun, safe and chemical-free celebration for our 2018 graduates next June. With a current class size of 248 students and an estimated event cost of $150 per graduate, our fundraising goal is a very lofty one and will continue throughout the school year.  

As a member of two previous committees, I very much appreciate the importance of parental involvement and the level of community support that a Project Grad endeavor entails. We are so fortunate to live in a community where the safety and well-being of our children is paramount, and where support for programs like Project Grad is offered from many factions. It’s only through the enthusiasm and commitment of dedicated community members that we can provide our graduates with one last night together, free of charge.

The Committee invites the entire Windham/Raymond community to help promote the purpose of Project Graduation by becoming involved and supporting our fundraisers. On Sunday, September 24, at beautiful Point Sebago, our annual Golf Tournament (and largest fundraiser) will be held. We welcome players of all levels to join the fun and register for this event, and encourage local businesses to show their support in the form of a tournament sponsorship or other donation. For more information on the tournament and how to register to play or provide some other form of support, please contact the committee at

We thank all for their support of WHS Project Graduation 2018 and look forward to continuing to partner with the community to promote the well-being of and celebrate our upcoming graduates.

Elaine Herzig
Project Grad 2018 Chair
