The committee for the Hardin County 2020 Graduation Celebration had to make the difficult decision to move the location of the event.
After reaching out to the Tennessee Department of Health for guidance, it was clear a change had to be made for the safety of the graduates due to the continuous rise in COVID-19 cases in the county.
However, the plan for a wonderful event is still in place for Saturday, Aug. 1, from 6- 8 p.m. at Savannah Church of Christ on Pickwick Street.
Hardin County High School graduates may dress in anything from their “Sunday Best” to full formal attire.
The plan is for participants to drive in, proceed to take photographs, pick up their meal and park in a designated space. Music will be playing and prizes will be announced over the speakers.
After photos are taken, everyone will be required to remain in their vehicle during the event. There will also be a Best Decorated Vehicle contest. Graduates are encouraged to be creative and decorate their cars and trucks for a chance to win an additional gift at the event.
There has been a tremendous outpouring of community support for the graduates and this event. Everyone will be receiving at least one gift and goody bags filled with useful items.
As a reminder, only those who registered by the July 15 deadline are eligible to attend.
