Contact:  Kellie Guarino, parent group member, 207-669-0576

December 290th – On Saturday night, January 27th, the community is invited to beat the cold by attending a special WINTER LUAU dinner and dance fundraiser for Messalonskee High School Class of 2019 at the Waterville Elks Banquet and Conference Center (76 Industrial Street) starting at 6:30 pm.

Funds raised will support certain class graduation costs and the student celebration afterward. This event is one of a series that the parent volunteers have been planning to entertain the broader community over the winter months and raise needed funds for the class. In addition to the Luau, a paint night as well as a Junior Auction is in the works.

The goal of these events is to get parents, friends, neighbors, and family in the community together for some fun throughout the year. Kellie Guarino, who has a Junior at Messalonskee, states “Parents who invest a lot of time and energy fundraising for the school should definitely have some tremendous fun while doing it! This Winter Luau on January 27 will give us an opportunity together to celebrate these wonderful students who have been growing alongside this community for years. And besides, what a great excuse for an adult night out to benefit a great cause!”

The Messalonskee parent group hopes the surrounding community will turn out in large numbers to participant in this event which is meant to be a reprieve from the long winter in Maine that has been hitting record lows recently. There will be a Hawaian buffet complete with coconut crusted haddock and Huli Huli chicken, plus banana/coconut cream pies and pineapple upside down cake for dessert. In addition, there will be tropical drink special options at the cash bar and a festive tiki photo booth-like opportunity to capture those Hawaian shirts and get in the Luau spirit. Entertainment is to be provided by DJ and Messalonskee alumni Forrest Labbe.
