The Mariposa County High School Grizzly Boosters Club is still working hard to provide a special graduation experience for local high school seniors, even in these hard times.
“I want people to know there is a plan and we want to celebrate the seniors and their achievements, so we still are hoping for donations,” said Carla Shelton, booster president.
To donate, message the group on its Facebook page “Mariposa County High School Grizzly Boosters Club,” or mail funds to P.O. Box 127 Mariposa CA 95338. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
The boosters plan to provide a gift for each senior, plus grand prizes. This year a few other surprises are in store.
“We are working with the high school,” said Shelton.
As always, the boosters have the same message, reminding the public to celebrate graduation safely, especially in the Covid-19 pandemic.
