Nite In Hand

Nite in Hand Madison CT since 1989

Help us celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Nite In Hand!

Dear Parents of the Class of 2023 and Parents of Daniel Hand HS,

As the school year opens, Lisa Rana and I would like to invite you to become part of one of the most important events at Daniel Hand High School, Nite in Hand. It is celebrating its 35th year of keeping our seniors safe on graduation night.

If you are not familiar with the event, Nite In Hand is a fun, safe, substance-free night of celebration for graduating Seniors. It typically takes place the night of graduation. Our Seniors look forward to the event with great anticipation. The Madison community and parents of DHHS graduates all come together to make this a memorable night for this year’s graduates.

Nite in Hand 2023 will be an overnight event of fun after graduation, (graduation date will be set at a later date pending weather conditions throughout the school year). We are beginning to work to make this a festive and memorable experience for this class of students of 2023. To that end we need your help.  We are in need of 2 (or more) Chairpersons for this event, in addition to other chair positions.  There is a link to a sign up genius below that explains what the role of each chairperson is.  Please take some time and review the opportunities and consider signing up for one.  Lisa and I are more than willing to help and support this year’s chairs, but we need you to volunteer. 

Volunteer Opportunities 

Nite In Hand cannot happen unless volunteers step up to make this event a reality. This is truly an incredible event to be a part of and to contribute to as well. There are all kinds of opportunities,  both large and small, to which you can participate.

We will be holding an in person informational meeting on Tuesday, September 20, 2022 beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Scranton Library (Life Long Learning Room). If you cannot attend in person, please join us via Google Meets

If you have any questions or would like additional information, please email us at

Thank you for your support,

Beth O’Keefe and Lisa Rana
