Project Graduation volleyball set for Friday


Kearny’s 2015 Project Graduation volleyball tournament — an annual event — is set for this Friday, April 24, at the Kearny High School gym. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the games are set to begin at 6:30.

The traditional event — held every year since 1996 — features a lineup of fiercely competitive teams.

Among the contests are those pitting teachers representing Kearny schools against each other. Last year’s tournament champs, the Franklin Falcons, will face the teachers from Washington School. The other matches: Garfield vs. Roosevelt and Lincoln vs. Schuyler.

In addition, KHS teachers will compete against members of the KHS class. Also on the schedule: Board of Education vs. Town Hall employees, and the Kearny Fire Department vs. the Kearny Police.

Tickets, available at the door, are $5; $3 for students and senior citizens. Tickets for Project Graduation’s 50- 50 raffle also will be sold at the tourney.

All proceeds go toward the graduation night drugfree, alcohol-free, party-untildawn celebration for members of the KHS Class of 2015.

Project Graduation welcomes volunteers. If you are interested, and at least 21, you’re invited to join. An informational meeting will be held Thursday, April 30, at 7:30 p.m. in the KHS teacher’s lounge. Further information is also available from KFD Chief Steve Dyl, the program chairman, at 201-991-7467. To buy 50-50 tickets, contact Sandy Hyde at 551-265-8969.
