Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District No. 42 has joined with the City of Maple Ridge and the City of Pitt Meadows to celebrate the graduating students of 2020.

The City of Maple Ridge has worked with its lighting supplier from GLOW Maple Ridge Christmas displays, and the supplier is generously sponsoring a ‘Grad 2020’ display in Memorial Peace Park. Decorations will include popular elements from the winter 2019 display including the art tree, light tunnel and enhanced lighting on the Bandstand. The light display will be available from June 5 until June 30, 2020. Additional details are available in the City’s June 4, 2020 news release.

The City of Pitt Meadows is providing family photo opportunities at Spirit Square. An area of Spirit Square (next to City Hall) will be set aside from June 17 to June 26 with enhanced flowers and a Grad 2020 celebrations sign for grad family photos for Pitt Meadows Secondary grads. The city is also encouraging all local businesses to display “Congrats 2020 Grads!” signs in their windows and on social media, and to offer specials to grads and their families. Additional details are available in the City’s June 15, 2020 news release.

Both cities are participating in and promoting the community-wide grad cheer on June 20, 2020 at 20:20 (8:20 pm).
