On Jan. 3, KSS Dry Grad, along with the Town of Qualicum Beach, did its annual Tree Chipping/Bottle Drive. We were absolutely overwhelmed by the amount of donations, both monetary and recyclables that were collected. We had an amazing group of students and parents show up and good thing because we spent seven full hours collecting and sorting donations. The citizens of Qualicum Beach are so supportive of their high school and we are so lucky to live in such an amazing community. Thank you to the staff of the Town of Qualicum Beach for supporting this event and for Jude and the staff at the Bottle Depot. Thank you to the grads of 2015 and their parents. We could not have done it without your help. All donations will go toward the KSS Dry Grad celebrations.
