1928 - Alderson High School - 1968



Alex McLaughlin - February 24, 2012

Change is inevitable. Someone is always talking about how the nimble adapt to change and those that don't get left behind. I hope the following modern translations help some of the Alderson crowd adapt and prosper in the new world. You will note that some things never change while some things change beyond belief. This may even turn into a contest.
