This is about our picnic today for the Adult Basic Education Priogram of Wood County West Virginia and also about the graduation of my son at McKinley Elementary School in Parkersburg West Virginia.

Graduation and Picnic

The annual picnic for the Adult Basic Education class of Wood County West Virginia was held today at Parkersburg City Park in Parkersburg West Virginia. There were about 60 people in attendance at the picnic and enough food to feed twice that many! If any body went away hungry it was their own fault! The picnic is held each year in honor of the students attending the classes and working toward their GED or high school equivalency diploma. My wife is working toward her diploma. She just leveled up recently, which means she went up a grade level in her studies.

Also McKinley Elementary School in Parkersburg WV is holding graduation tonight for its fifth grade class. My son is among the graduates. I am very proud of him as he is graduating academically toward the top of his class. He has worked very hard and made very good grades through out his years in school. He has brought home a couple of those "I'm the proud parent of a Kiwanis Terrific Kid" certificates as well. So I'm very proud of him! His name is Kevin.

Graduation, no matter from what or at what stage of life, is usually a satisfying and rewarding experience... Perhaps especially for any proud parent. Glad you had one.
