And away they go!
Graduates of Grand Forks high schools this weekend may remember the long, cold winter. They probably will remember the after graduation party at River Cinema in East Grand Forks that is scheduled from 10:30 p.m. to 2 a.m. Sunday.
There they will find pizza and wings, cash prizes, games. Afterward, as time goes by, they probably never will forget their favorite teachers.
But very few will remember who said what at the graduation ceremony.
You wonder how many will be back for their 25th class reunion in 2044. And you wonder what will the world be like when it is time for a 50th class reunion in 2069.
As it is, the Central High School class of 1964 will hold a 55th class reunion here on July 26-27 at Eagles Crest. And the 50th class reunion for both Central and Red River alumni is being planned for July 26-27 at the Ramada Inn.
There’s a 40th class reunion for both high schools in the planning stages for Sept. 13-14. The events are being set for the Masonic Temple and the Ramada.
