Project Senior Graduation saves teen lives: Monica Leatherman, last week’s Marco Noontime Rotary Club speaker, is executive director of YMCA of Palms (Naples and Bonita Springs). She thanked the Noontime Rotary Club for its monetary support for this year’s successful event which was sponsored by the YMCA Palms. Many organizations and businesses help with the annual event which costs in excess of $100,000 plus many hours of volunteer labor to produce. All Collier County high school graduating seniors are invited to an all night supervised party each year on graduation night. The party features carnival games, thanks to the Lely High School Seniors, door prizes, entertainment and refreshments. Ms. Leatherman is proud that there have been no graduation night deaths in Collier County since the event was initiated.
