“Wall Of Wishes” For 2020 Grads

The Staples High School Class of 2020 will not have a traditional graduation. Instead, on June 11 they’ll take part in a car parade.

But one Westporter wants to make sure they know the entire town is thinking of them. She’s created a “Wall of Wishes.”

She delivered blank posters to ASF Sports & Outdoors and Saugatuck Sweets. Everyone is invited to write a message, quote, or words of encouragement to the graduates (bring your own sharpie!).

“Let them know they are not alone, and there is so much more out there,” Kelly — whose son AJ is one of those seniors — says.

“It will get better. They will to be stronger from this — even though it doesn’t seem so right now.”

Kelly will post the messages along the route for the grads to see. She and I will find a way to share them on “06880” too.

If you have any questions — or prefer to email your wishes — send them to wallofwishes2020@gmail.com. The deadline is next Friday (June 5).
