At its November 7th meeting, the Wells-Ogunquit CSD School Committee presented Bob Heleniak co-owner of “Sundaes at the Beach” in Moody, with a certificate “in recognition and appreciation” for his business’s recent donation to Project Graduation at Wells High School.

Project Graduation exists to provide a safe and chemical free day and night of celebration for WHS graduates each June. The organization is staffed by parent volunteers and depends upon funds raised through its various fund raising activities and donations.

On October 28th, Bob and Natalie Heleniak, owners of the popular Route One ice cream stand, raised $1,100 for Project Graduation from ice cream and other food sales during that day, officially their last day of business for the 2012 season. However, to raise money for victims of super storm Sandy, the Heleniaks decided to open one extra day on November 11th.

Over the last year, Sundaes At The Beach has donated $500 for the Athletic Boosters at Wells High School and The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center.
