The 2011 graduating class of RSS has organized a bottle drive for April 30 to support their end-of-high-school festivities.

“The grads are going to Silverwood for their trip, plus part of it is going to decorating the gym,” said Mary Ann Davies, the bottle drive organizer.

Silverwood, the Northwest’s largest theme park, is a “mini Disneyland just north of Coeur d’Alene in Idaho,” Davies explained.

Going to the theme park has become something of a tradition over the past years. “It’s like a ritual for them,” Davies said, although the students vote on their trip anew each year.

The funds should help cover a meal, the tickets, and perhaps some of the gas and school bus rental that teacher Rick McKinnon is organizing.

The bottle drive itself should be a fun time too, with a barbecue and treat table to fuel the sorters in the lot beside the Garage Restaurant, plus all the sanitary necessities.

For a pick-up at your curb, or if you missed the drive and have cans and bottles to contribute, contact Davies at 362-7302.
