All classes had a room in the school for mini reunions, displaying their memorabilia, playing music from their era and whatever else they wanted to do with it.

The program in the auditorium on the 16th was highlighted by the surprise appearance of Mr. Miles Lundahl, retired band director who was at RHS from day one until the mid-1980’s. The ovation that he received will echo in the memories of those of us who were there for years to come. The program was aired on Richfield Time Warner Cable, Channel 17

Much needed dollars were raised for the RPS Fund and the Spartan Foundation from the sale of school lunches in the cafeteria, t-shirts, magnets, hats, buttons, and lapel pins commemorating the occasion.
