Remember When 

At Your Graduation Best


It is graduation time. Do you remember your high school graduation? The pomp and ceremony of it all.

The gals planned their attire for several months, or at least weeks. Graduation announcements were ordered from a firm that usually made a sales appearance at the school. Very little individualism with those announcements, no online or Photoshop. The entire class had the same announcement to send out.

Graduation was a time for your best. Did you even think of decorating the top of your cap, or wearing tennis shoes or flip flops? Did we have a dress code then, or was that just the expected thing for us to do?

I bet you do remember the graduation parties held later. No organized all-night events with chaperons. Of course, you always had to face Mom and Dad at some time, but that didn’t deter things too much.

Change is good, I enjoy getting the personalized announcements and attending the graduation parties (that is the ones that adults are invited to) and wishing these young people the best. Maybe graduation time is even a little safer with the after-graduation parties. I am sure that you all join me in wishing a FUN and SAFE event for our graduating seniors.
