2016 marks the 23rd year for Vicksburg Project Graduation’s annual craft show. It was organized to raise funds to provide an excursion to an unknown destination for graduating seniors after their ceremonies. For a number of years, Michelle Morgan has been the person in charge of the craft show from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on November 19 at Sunset Lake Elementary school.
Morgan has a real knack for scheduling and managing big events. She has enlarged the craft show to include a bake sale and concession stand, with every square foot of space in the school taken up with crafters. This year she does not have a young person graduating but she volunteered to manage the event anyway.
The costs of Project Graduation are huge for the parents or students who are paying the bills. It takes many other fundraising projects that have been planned during the school year with Marian Steffens in charge of fundraising for the class of 2017.
