In front of an estimated crowd of 400, the Loudonville High School Class of 2019 presented "Senior Night Live" at the C.E. Budd School auditorium on Saturday, March 16. Patterned after the "Saturday Night Live" television show, the event consisted of 19 comedy skits performed by 26 students and 15 faculty members.
The event raised $4,490 to benefit the Loudonville-Perrysville School Foundation. These Senior Projects have been an annual tradition for 20 straight years, beginning with a 1500-person Human Chain across the Village of Loudonville in the year 2000. Along with other fundraising activities, these annual Senior Projects have helped the Foundation provide grants of more than $93,000 to the Loudonville-Perrysville Schools.
Audience members showed their generosity by donating almost 200 items to the Helping Hand food pantry. A raffle of four $25 gas cards was held for those bringing items, and the winners were Marilyn Carroll, Mary Davis, Lisa Nall, and Susie Piskur.
The L-P School Foundation would like to thank all the performers, the "behind the scenes" helpers, and the parents who helped make this event possible. Special thanks go to high school teacher Aimee Ross, Class of 2019 Advisor, for her many hours of work with the students. Additional thanks go to Buzzard’s Family Shoes for selling tickets, Stake's IGA for distributing advertising flyers, and to the Loudonville Perrysville Booster Club for the use of their popcorn machine and supplies.
Finally, we thank the Class of 2019 for a fun-filled evening of entertainment, and for doing good things to benefit the community. We hope you'll tune in next year to see what the Class of 2020 chooses for its Senior Project!
