July 4th at Dartmouth College

(Hanover, NH Friday July 4, 2008) It was a sunny day in Hanover this July 4th--our nation's 232nd birthday. Many in the community celebrated by attending a parade and festival on the Green at Dartmouth College. Today also marked completion by the six El Cerrito High School students of the first week of a two-week summer session at Dartmouth. The student's daily schedule--including Saturdays and Sundays--usually begins at 8:00 am and lasts until 10:00 pm. The academic focus of the coursework includes essay writing, SAT preparation, and public speaking. The Summer Enrichment at Dartmouth program (SEAD) includes students from nearby Claremont High School to as far south as Spartanburg High School in North Carolina. El Cerrito High School is the farthest away and the only high school west of the Mississippi to participate in the SEAD program.

Just when I was starting to feel okay about myself, you go and remind me that I'm getting old.

It seems like only yesterday that I was celebrating our 200th anniversary with all of the grand celebrations and you go and throw it in my face that it's now our 232nd anniversary.

Did I take a long nap or something? I haven't lived a full 32 years since that day so where did the time go?
