Senior Appreciation Night is way for graduating seniors to have an alcohol- and drug-free night of celebration. The event will be May 30 and are free to seniors, plus one guest that is age 16-20.
Parents, businesses and community leaders created SAN in 1984 as an alternative to dangerous graduation celebrations that lead to drinking and driving in the mountains.
Today, SAN continues to provide safe and fun activities for local graduates.
The event is produced by Los Alamos County, The Family YMCA, The Youth Activity Center, Kiwanis Club and several other local service groups and businesses. The event is a community-wide, all-night party for graduating seniors.
This year, activities include a barbecue, Wild West photographs, music, roller skating, a climbing wall, inflatable toys and late night movies, concluding with a 3 a.m. Sunday breakfast.
Anyone interested can donate, sponsor, contribute or collect for this year’s event.
Those wishing to donate may make out a check to SAN, in care of the Family YMCA, 1450 Iris St., Los Alamos, N.M. 87544.
For more information about the night’s activities or to make a donation, call Diana Martinez, 662-3100.
