Farewell Class of 2010!

Last week the class of 2010 walked across the commencement stage and bid a fond or otherwise farewell to their old alma mater.  Pictured here is the beginning of the processional from the high school to the stadium.  Faculty in black.   Approximately 400 graduates in maroon.  I am notorious for taking behind the scenes pictures.  Once again, the weather was threatening and once again, we got lucky.

A picture of our student school board member, Ryan - also one of the class officers, giving his commencement address.  Notice "Indians" on the press box in the background.  Could be the last commencement as Menomonee Falls Indians.  The state of Wisconsin recently passed a law that will all but eliminate the use of Native American mascots.
Students lining up to cross the stage to receive their diplomas.  It is always an honor to greet, shake hands with, and award a diploma to the jittery, nervous, happy graduates - my favorite school board duty by far.

Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet-
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
