3If you noticed my blog date, you saw two dates.

If you live locally, you know the story of the graduate who talked about shooting up graduation and that graduation was postponed from Thursday night to Friday night and the venue changed from LCBC to Manheim Central Football Field.

3bThere was some police presence, but by the time of graduation the young man was in jail and most of us felt safe to be in an open field. (LCBC Church was not available on Friday night.)

  1. Goodness, your area has had a run of unfortunate incidents — I’m glad this one resulted only in rescheduling the graduation by one day! Congratulations to Diana 🙂 !
