The high school that I attended many years ago is being torn down.
Last weekend they had a last chance to walk through the old building and I unfortunately missed it.
Besides attending school there and graduating there as did my brothers...
the school was also the place where for many years many community events took place.
Every year the community had an annual Rotary Carol Festival and local churches and community choirs and bands met for several evenings and performed songs that were all about Christmas.
This was our church choir performing.
The choir conductor was Kathy's Dad.
This newspaper clipping from long ago made me smile.
It was the Christmas of 1977.
I would have graduated that year and was freshly engaged to be married.
Two weeks after this date I attended Kathy and Scot's wedding...
just because her Dad was my choir conductor.
His choir...sang at her wedding.
It was the very beginning of our friendship.
If someone would have told me then that that pretty girl with the long wavy hair would become such a dear friend...
I might have bought her more than a little saucepan for a wedding gift.
I might have bought her an apron to go with it.
How perfect would that have been?
These were all the things I thought about when I looked at this old newspaper clipping.
this memory too has been documented.
Did you find me in the picture?
all for now..
