City of Maple Ridge and the Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows School District will recognize the graduating class of 2020 with a special light display and community cheer, the city announced in a release on Thursday morning.
Mayor Mike Morden said he has been working with school board chair Korleen Carreras to coordinate an effort to “salute” the 2020 grad class.
“COVID-19 has impacted events usually associated with graduation and we discussed ways the City can support their efforts and help mark this important milestone,” said Morden.
So on June 20 at 8:20 p.m. the city, alongside the school district, will celebrate this year’s grads with a community cheer in addition to a special month-long light display in Memorial Peace Park.
