Sneak Peek Of Nite-In-Hand From 4 p.m. to 6 p.m Tuesday!

It takes a village to throw a spectacular party like Nite-In-Hand for our grads. Here are some of the people and organizations we have to thank for the 24th annual alcohol- and drug-free extravaganza graduation night.

The Madison Community is invited to view the decorations for the Class of 2012 Nite in Hand from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 19th.

Here is a note that Eileen Banisch, the head of the Madison Chamber of Commerce, received recently from Andrea Hutton of Given Chocolates, one of the many generous individuals and organzations who have supported this effort:

"When I first moved here, someone told me about the viewing of the decorations on the last day of school. It left such an impression on me, and I am not sure that many people in town know that you can go see it. I went with my children and I was amazed. It seemed far off, but I knew that I would be a part of it someday. That day has come. [My son] is graduating and I am confident - like at least 300 other parents - that he will be safe because of our support and dedication."

Remember that volunteers and support will be needed for next year's celebration!
