This year’s Senior’s Supper put on by the graduating class of CCHS will look different than previous ones.

Previous dinners have been held at the CCHS gym with students serving the meal to the seniors in attendance.

This year, that interaction won’t be able to happen.

Christopher Collings, the 2021 Grad Class President, says this year’s dinner will require booking in advance.

“Seniors in the community interested in receiving the supper can place their order by calling the school, at (403) 563-5651, before Friday, March 26. The supper will then be delivered by the graduating students on the following Monday. There is no charge for the supper; however, donations to the Graduating class are appreciated. This year’s supper is organized by the students and parents who took on the role of finding a substitute fundraiser in place of the Senior Supper, which normally is held before Christmas.”

The meals will be delivered on Monday, March 29th.

Deliveries will begin at 4:00pm.

Collings says the graduating class felt it was still important to do a dinner.

“It’s an opportunity to give back to the community. Having this fundraiser allows us to connect with the seniors in our community. It’s also a fundraiser for our class to support our celebration at the end of the year.”

Collings wants to thank Chris’ Restaurant for their role in this year’s supper as well.

“A special thank you to Chris’s Restaurant for all they have done to help create this event, by giving their time to make the supper, helping with the organization, and finding donations for the food.”

For Lisa Markowski, Manager of Chris’ Restaurant, Covid-19 wasn’t going to stop their participation in this year’s supper.

“We always do something every year for the grads and the community. Just because it's a Covid year, doesn't mean we can't do something. This provides a little bit of normalcy for everyone. My mom likes helping the community and the grads so it's something we still wanted to do.”

Markowski says some businesses that Chris’ deal with are helping with donations but the majority of work for the dinner will be done by Chris’ Restaurant.

Collings says it’s disappointing to not have an in person meal but says he is grateful for the support this year and also says the school is looking forward to welcoming seniors back into the gym in future years.

“ We are disappointed in not being able to host the event in person, but the hopes are high in being able to continue this tradition next year and the following years to come. I would also like to thank all those who have helped make this event happen and the seniors who have ordered the supper.”
