This photo shows the football stadium before the graduates were in it. The men down on the field were actually using leaf blowers to dry the seats from the rain that had fallen earlier in the day. Here is a rather ominous public service announcement on the jumbo tron.

Here are the kids in the parking lot after we made the trek back to the cars.
