Thursday, June 9 and Friday June 10
Diana came to our house so I could get a few pictures before her graduation.
Finally – graduation time arrived
If 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.
There 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.)
Our son Jeff talking to a friend.

Faculty and graduates walking from school to the field.
Diana’s picture on the football screen.
We located Diana by her long white dress – below her gown.
The speaker was Hwaen Ch’uqu a 1993 graduate of Manheim Central. He is an Inca Indian – a native of Peru – and an accomplished musician of world renown. He is blind and has been in the United States since the age of five.
