It's Time For Operation Balloon

Get ready to buy some gold for your favorite Amity grad.


Graduation Balloons: Do you know any seniors graduating from Amity High School next month?

One thing that's sure to make his or her day is a “Congratulations Amity Grad” balloon or two or an entire bunch.

The balloons will be delivered and tied to graduate mailboxes over the course of two days — June 20 and 21. See the attached order form with additional information about ordering graduation balloons.  

Many volunteers are needed to help make this  fundraiser a success. The PTSA is looking for volunteers to help blow up and deliver balloons starting at noon on Wednesday, June 20 and Thursday, June 21. 

Last year, the PTSA blew up and delivered more than 4,500 balloons. They expect numbers to be similar this year since the event is so popular with students and gives them an extreme sense of pride. 

Help from anyone with time to donate would be greatly appreciated.  If you're willing to help, call Linda Ferranti at (203) 671-3241 or e-mail  linferranti@yahoo.com.

I hate this tradition and wish the district would consider doing something that is a little more environmentally friendly. http://www.newcanaannature.org/resources/articles/wildlife/balloons.php

I can't wait to see all the balloons on the mailboxes around town! I'm sure the parents of the graduating seniors will throw the balloons out when they are deflated so they won't be endangering the wildlife.

I have 5 seniors on my street and we r looking forward to gold balloons everywhere! I will be throwing them away when we r done enjoying them. I realize it is a wild life hazard but so are a lot of other things - lets enjoy them!
