PCSS seniors raising funds for Project Graduation

    GUILFORD — Got bottles? The Piscataquis Community Secondary School Class of 2013 will be conducting a Project Graduation bottle drive on Saturday, Feb. 9 to raise funds for their class trip in June. Students will collect bottles at your home, or you may drop them at the Davis-Northup garage on Route 150 in Parkman where students will be sorting and counting bottles that day.


    If the date is not convenient, bottles to benefit the class may be dropped off anytime at the collection bin in the parking lot of the Forget Me Not flower shop next to Rite Aid in Guilford. Also, White’s Redemption Center on Crow Hill Road in Parkman and Route 23 Redemption in Sangerville will credit bottles to the students’ account if customers ask them to do so.

    The students are working hard this year to raise the funds necessary for their post-graduation trip to Boston. In October, students sorted over $1,000 worth of bottles during their first bottle drive. In November they decorated, sold and delivered wreaths.

    In December, they conducted a Tastefully Simple catalog sale. An online sale remains open for the food products through spring to benefit the class so that friends and family who live out of the area may also support the fundraiser. To order, visit, select “Shop our Products,” then “Host/Event Search.” Enter PCHS as the “first name” and Graduation as the “second name” to find the catalog party being run by consultant Kary Lyman of Monson.

    Students are also conducting half-time chuck-a-ball contests at all of the home basketball games this winter, with half of the cash going to the winner and the other half going toward the class trip.

    Students are very grateful for the support shown by the community this year. For information about these, or upcoming Project Graduation fundraisers to benefit the PCSS Class of 2013, call Carrie Fellows at 717-5271.
