What if it was time for the annual
Alumni dinner, and no one came?
The other day, my class mate Andy
Russell and I were talking about fact, that possibly 25-30 years
from now, there wouldn't be any graduates, or attendees left from
Alderson High School. Each year we loose someone else and last year
we lost over 15 people that were either graduates, teachers, or
someone who attended AHS. It brings up a vision of just two elderly
folks sitting in an empty auditorium waiting for the dinner to
start, but it never does because they are the last two. Sad.
Andy suggested a "Grand
Reunion", where all would make an effort to to get there one more
time, if at all possible. I realize the possible hardships; health
and finances would be two major factors. Maybe it would be enough
just to designate an upcoming 4th as a Grand Reunion. It would have
to be soon. I also realize this may never come to fruition, but it's
a thought. And, if you have thoughts on the subject, please leave
them and your ideas in the comment box.
