Alumni Game 2009

There are few days in our school calendar as special as the annual alumni game. Hundreds of men, women, and children spanning four generations, sixty years of school history, and all walks of life, come together for a laid back evening of food, fun, and basketball. Every child who wants to play gets a chance to shine and every parent who wants to play gets a chance to try. The number of volunteers is astounding, the willingness to help is inspiring, and the collegial spirit is uplifting.

Thanks to the efforts of Tracy Rapp and her dedicated committee, this year's game was even more special than most. Held for the first time in Briarcrest, it featured even more children's games, more food selection, and a crowd that might well have been the biggest ever. There was even exciting basketball (from the 1st-3rd graders, at least!).

Thank you to all who helped make it happen.
