Dry grad desperately in need of volunteers

Organizers for Nanaimo Dry Grad next June are looking to fill five vacant committee chair positions

Nanaimo’s annual dry grad celebration is in danger of being cancelled due to a lack of volunteers.

Organizers for Nanaimo Dry Grad next June are looking to fill five vacant committee chair positions and need volunteers to fill them as soon as possible. The vacant committee positions are for head chairperson, secretary, fundraising, entertainment and decorations.

Jason Bradley, security committee chairperson, said the event is in jeopardy of being cancelled if committee positions can’t be filled.

“It’s just too much work for a small group to do,” he said.

Committee members are expected to meet once a month.

“A chairperson doesn’t have to be a single person,” Bradley said. “It could be a group of people running a committee like fundraising.”

He said volunteers are needed to help out in a range of areas for the night of the event such as bag check and cleanup. He said interested individuals do not need to have a child in the high school system to volunteer.

“We are looking for pretty much anybody who can come and help,” he said.

Bradley, who participated in dry grad as a student back in 1991, said he volunteered to help out at dry grad this past school year because his kids are now in high school and that he really enjoyed it.

“It’s a really good time,” he said.

Those interested in volunteering in any position must be 21 or older and can visit http://www.nanaimodrygrad.com for more information.
