What is Project Graduation?
Project Graduation is an all night, Drug and Alcohol Free,
celebration for the entire Senior Class of
Hillsborough High School
after the June graduation ceremonies.
Project Graduation has been an effort by the Senior Class,
their parents and the Community for more than a decade.
Project Graduation receives NO funding from Hillsborough Township,
the Board of Education or Somerset County.
This event is funded entirely by donations and activities the Seniors organize
and participate in during their final year at
Hillsborough High School.
Another way to Support Hillsborough Project Graduation is by joining the

A lot of people have crossed over this bridge in their cars, never noticing
the adjacent parking lot, or that the bridge has a pedestrian walkway with a magnificent view!
(Some people even like to go down and look at the bridge from the underside)
Its fun to watch anglers fishing below in the river (Bait is sold near the bridge).
... But please don't do this while you are driving, and don't bother the deer!
Now for the FUN part:
For some reason (it might have started one Easter) people seem to show up at the bridge on the third Sunday of every month (when its a beautiful day or even an interesting weather day) at 3:00 PM to read poetry.
So don't blame me if you grab your favorite book of poems, and put it in your car so you will be ready, or better yet, bicycle over to the bridge on that day and have a great time!
Please be careful what you say or read however, because those Raritan Politicians passed an ordinance against certian kinds of language on their side of the bridge. (Free speech still prevails on the Hillsborough side).
In 1999, Hurricane Floyd damaged the Nevius Street Bridge's pedestrian walkway, (Yes, the water got that high!) but was repaired and returned to service for several years.
On March 25 2004, the Nevius Street Bridge was closed to traffic for repairs but we look forward to its reopening soon for pedestrian traffic.
The Geraldine R Dodge Foundation sponsored Poetry Festival was held in Hillsborough from September 30 through October 3, 2004
For inspiration, lovers of beauty might also consider an independent tour of
Duke Farms, or a reading of poetry
at and a view of the Raritan at the magnificent Nevius Street Bridge.

The meetings are not just for registered Hillsborough NJ Libertarians, Republicans and Democrats, the Mayor of Hillsborough Township NJ, foreign dignitaries from the nearby U.N. (in NYC), that wish to see and learn from American Municipal Government in action, or tourists flocking to Hillsborough for the Baseball Batting Cages at Golfland, Shooting Ranges and Golf Courses. The meetings are also for local Hillsboro residents of any age who may attend and put in their own "two cents" worth of opinions during the public discussion intervals. Everyone should attend at least one meeting, just to see what it is like, and to "keep an eye" on those local politicians. Put on a good show for the local cable channel! ... Maybee it's your only chance to be in the limelight"
Expect rides, games of skill and chance; music and Fun for all!

Joetta told the team to remember the word SWIM as an acronym for achieving goals.
Do you know what SWIM stands for?
Sacrifice, Willing to Wait, Integrity and Motivation. Joetta gave examples of how when you set a goal for yourself, you might have to sacrifice even your Prom attendance to achieve it, that you shouldn't expect instant gratification, and that you must measure your progress accurately.
I suppose it wasn't just what she said, but it was the way she said it, and interacted that was so inspiring. Quality counts, and we are fortunate to have her in Hillsborough!
