Loyal Riverside Alumni,
We hope all is well with all of you and that you are taking every precaution as we want to see all of you again when we can start our events back up. Fortunately, here in Lake County the infection rate is quite low and the numbers are pretty flat.
But we are still interacting with the school and our graduating seniors.
Jaime McIntyre, the Senior Class advisor, asked for our help with two initiatives.
The first was supporting the development of congratulatory yard signs for each senior. These were created with the help the association and the teacher’s union. If you live in the area, you got to see them around. If you didn’t, a photo of one is to the right.
The second event was called the Senior Send-Off Parade. The parking lot behind Riverside was set up so that the seniors would drive past cars of folks who wanted to show their appreciation for the extraordinary circumstances that these seniors had to endure. We were well- represented by Loretta Vandervort, Beth Knezevich and Gretchen Reed. See the story about the event here.
Of course, at this point everything is up in the air regarding the Hall of Fame and Homecoming. We will be following the lead of the school board and administration as to what happens with these events.
In the meantime, stay safe and find ways to enjoy the time you have with those that are close to you.
RHS Alumni Association president
