On Wednesday, March 20th, the Rutherford Education Foundation hosted an exciting night at Rutherford High School with the Harlem Wizards - an incredibly entertaining event for people of all ages.
Members of the Rutherford Municipal Alliance were in attendance to donate $250 to Rutherford High School’s Project Graduation.
Rutherford Municipal Alliance, which consists of 11 community volunteers and Council Liaison, Councilman Thomas Mullahey, meets once a month to discuss the needs of our community and to establish a spending plan for the benefit of our community.
Municipal Alliances are overseen by the County Alliance Coordinator and CASS, County Alliance Steering Committee. The Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, or GCADA, sets the guidelines for Municipal Alliances and regulations on how the funding can be spent. Rutherford’s current focus is the prevention of underage alcohol consumption.
Project Graduation is a nationally recognized drug and alcohol free night of celebration in which Rutherford has been participating since 1997. The event is filled with fun, food and activities for outgoing high school seniors and takes place right after graduation.
