We had a nice time at the reunion, even though
it was hotter than blazes! There were classmates attending
whom we hadn’t seen since the 60s! Several teachers were there as
well as parents. The best part was the visiting and laughing.
Everyone left talking about having a 50th – a good sign!

Reunion T-shirts Available!
Check out this website
. It has Riggs High/Governors tee-shirts we can
order. I don’t believe you have to pay the $10 registration
fee to place an order. You can select from their designs or
design your own. It was suggested by a classmate that we order
tee-shirts to wear at the reunion, especially the picnic and Drag
Euclid event on Sunday, Aug 8th.
