for alma mater...

Just got back from my 25th high school reunion. Only 35 or so of the 180+ 1982 graduates of River Valley showed up, but we had a great time. Unlike the first reunion, at 10 years, which was not long enough after graduation, or the 15th, when I wasn't yet comfortable enough with my life, this time, we were all simply glad to see each other, and the old barriers were largely absent. It was good to catch up with folks, to hear about the interesting lives that have spun out of that particular group of people.

I don't think the low turnout was due to the fact that the school was built on an Army Corps of Engineers dump site; I hope to see more of us in 2012.
