WE’RE FROM RICHFIELD
STILL COULDN’T BE PROUDER!
The RHS 50th Anniversary Celebration was awesome!
About 150 people attended the Prom on Saturday, October 9th. Several alumni went to the school on Monday, October 11th to speak to the current students.
Scores of alumni were in attendance at the Homecoming Game on Friday, October 15th to watch the Spartans trounce St. Paul Harding 42-14.
About 5,000 people attended the celebration at the school on Saturday, October 16th and about 1,500 people attended the reception at the VFW later on that evening.
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.
Thousands of alumni signed the “birthday card” that we made for the school.
Thanks to everyone who helped to put the event together and to the thousands who attended. See you again at the 75th!
