You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille,
With four hungry children and a crop in the field.
I had some bad times,
Lived through some sad times,
But this time your hurting won’t heal.
You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille!
--from "Lucille" sung by Kenny Rogers

SunRiver Resort at Bend, Oregon
Memorial Day Weekend 1979

With the money we made from making apple cider, collecting bottles, burning stumps, and operating the school candy store, we were able to finance the entire senior trip.

At SunRiver we rode bikes, paddled canoes, swam, cooked, jogged, and watched the Seattle SuperSonics on TV in the NBA playoffs.  (The Sonics went on to win their first--and only--NBA Championship on our graduation night.) On Sunday, many of us got sunburned; on Monday, it snowed!

Each of the four cabins was supervised by a pair of chaperones:  Fred and Dolores Mohoric, Hap and Sally Anderson, Ben and Anita Sandrini, and David Shough and Cheryl Lemke, our class advisor.

Anita drove the bus on the long trip down and back, and put up with our horrible rendition of "Lucille."   She rightfully was concerned about being able to buy gas in remote Eastern Oregon, on a holiday weekend during a serious fuel shortage.  Not even Anita would want to run out of gas and be stranded with a bunch of kids who had a bad case of senioritis!
