SENIORS ENJOY ANNUAL KID DAY
That group of over-grown children everyone saw riding around
town on bicycles Friday, April 1, was only the Senior class
of RHS. Don't worry though, everything is back to normal now.
"Kid Day" was enjoyed by the class of 1960, Friday at the high
school. Everyone came dressed as a reasonable facsimile of
their younger "daze". The girls wore penafores with ribbons
in their hair and carried dolls and stuffed animals. Boys
in short pants were equipped with "bean shooters" and water
guns. Everyone got wet and had a good time. They were permit-
ted to chew gum and eat candy and play with their toys in class.
The "Kid Day" program presented in assembly at 10:30 was as
follows: Charles White gave the salutation and introduced
First on the program was a musical entitled "The Easter Parade"

and Jerry Wilson.
Next was a skit entitled "The Ten Little Indians" by Sally
Mendez, Barbara Craig, Nancy Cantwell, Nedra Hodges, Glenda

Members of the class enjoyed a picnic lunch at the Willows
Park at noon and rode their bicycles after school. They
were entertained at the home of classmate Nina Henry where
they had a Bar-B-Q chicken supper.
The "Kids" were still going strong as they attended the
junior class play that night. It proved to be a thoroughly
enjoyable but rather tiring day.
