For more than two decades, some very unselfish and supportive parents have opened their homes to our high school students for a safe place to gather after our Friday night home football games.  Our students have enjoyed having a place to go and socialize with their friends while consuming munchies, sandwiches and drinks.  This is a safe environment where our students can go without worries of any hassles or problems.  They have done an excellent job of disciplining themselves while having a lot of fun at the same time.  A few rules are to be followed by CPU students and are enforced by the host parents: 

1.       Students are to stay - not come and go.  If they leave, they are not allowed back.  

2.       No food or beverages are to be brought into the party.  All food and drink will be provided by the hosts.

3.       No use or possession of any illegal substances or objects will be allowed. 

4.       Students are asked to pick up after themselves and leave promptly by 12:00 a.m. (midnight).

The Linn County Law Enforcement and Benton County Law Enforcement agencies are aware of the parties’ locations and times.  Any problems and the police will be immediately contacted. 

Donations and volunteers are needed - all the food and drink is provided and prepared by party hosts.  If you’d like to leave a donation or are willing to help, please contact the high school office or the hosts of that particular evening.  Many hands make lighter work and also the donations help with the financial burdens of today’s times.  Thank you!
