A Message from RHS Teacher Alan Gersham
I had the most wonderful time last night -- my cup runneth over!!! It was the
greatest fun ~ such vivid memories of so many students, who and how they were in
my classes; I even remembered where many of them sat in my classes. I am
grateful that so many greeted me, introduced me to their spouses and
"significant others," and recalled the RHS classes we shared 40 years ago.
You and the Reunion Committee did magnificiently in bringing so many to a
terrific celebration, producing a thoroughly memorable program -- I especially
enjoyed the dancing; the final three couples were awesome!!! -- and recalling
the late 60's with such wonderful spirit.
