The June 16, 2016 Graduation and Moving On 2016 were terrific! The students had a great time and families enjoyed seeing their babies graduate. The success is owed to these wonderful people and businesses, as well as the many JGMS families who donated financially to this event.
Chair Cindy Fisette – Moving On is a large endeavor, and Cindy was excellent in putting it all together! Thank you to Rick Fisette for being Cindy’s right-hand man. The Fisette duo got so very many things done behind the scenes to ensure a perfect night. We can’t thank them enough!
