9. The LVR Class of 2016 is building a time capsule that will be opened at a class reunion 10 or more years from now. Each grad is invited to contribute something that is meaningful to them - a photo, a story, or some small thing that is about living in Nelson in 2016 and will be fun to look back on years from now. Bring your contribution to the Prom - there will be tables set up in the hallway as you enter where we will display all the contributions. The contributions can be funny, but to be included they must be respectful and appropriate. You will not get your contribution back - the time capsule will be sealed at the end of grad and not opened for at least 10 years. We are also making a memory book. During the Prom, each grad can take a few minutes to complete a page that will be included in the book. The pages will be available at one of the tables in the hallway. At the end of the Prom, the memory book will be put into the time capsule. So start thinking of some really creative things to contribute to the time capsule!!
10. There will be a one day Emergency First Aid course customized for adventurous youth in Nelson on Monday, May 30 (Pro-D).
