Welcome to Monday Koffee Klatch! For those who are new to our daily routine please feel free to jump right on in. This is our time each day when we only talk about things that are fun or make us happy. The one rule using the "P" word...(P is for pain...but I didn't really say it!) tongue We welcome Healing Well people from all over the boards since most any disorder members have also includes the 'P' word. So feel comfortable joining our daily chit-chat.

Did you enjoy extra curricular activities when you were in school? What school activities and sports did or do you participate in? Were you into sports? Maybe you were dynamite on the debate team. Were you a member of FFA?...they're an awesome group, BTW.

Since I grew up waaayyyy back in the dark ages, and yes we had indoor plumbing! I'm not THAT old. But we did have a rifle team and shot competition small-bore. Since my dad taught at the school and took on the rifle team as an after school project I was thrilled to join. I already knew how to shoot and went hunting with dad but this was target shooting with 22 long rifles. Somewhere in a dusty box are a pile of trophies. I also was in our girls service organization. We did the tickets at sporting events, ushered at auditorium programs, etc. That was fun. I thought about the debate team but I was too opinionated and wouldn't let anyone get away with stupidity (there's a story behind so there is no way I could have argued a side I disagreed with. smilewinkgrin Oh, almost forgot...I played in the stage band for a couple of years. I played piano and the stage band music was just my style. Lots of elegant dance music. My favorite was "The Days of Wine and Roses".

OK, time for me to get out of the past...almost got lost back there. How about others...did you participate in after school activities???

I really enjoyed going out for school plays. I loved to act. There is so much action with plays. There is so much going on. The hustle and bustle, the feeling of accomplishment, the sound of applause or laughter. Most of the time, I was chosen for bit parts because my director showed favoritism to other kids, but I didn't mind too much. I just loved being involved with it.

High School...seems like yesterday. The reality is that my 40th class reunion is this

Art Club and Pep Club were my thing! I enjoyed making posters for the pep rallies and
the games, going to the games and cheering the Trojans on.

Chutzie, now I have visions of you as Annie Oakley!
Sassy, all our plays were musicals. I would have had to play a tree.

Oh Robin, my 40th is next yr, my college is 35 yrs next wk. OUCH! Some of my HS teachers are still there, my children had a couple of them.
Now to the question at hand. I lived 5 mi from my HS when I started, no late buses or friends into activities, so no ride home after school. In my Jr yr my parents decided to move. Originally said to the northern part of the st, ended up in the town where my HS was. Even weirder, right across the street from the school.  rolleyes   One good thing about that was now I was able to join in some activities.
I took accounting classes, so my teacher asked me to sell tickets for the football games and a few other sports. Yes, there was a time I could actually count. It was fun. I also joined the Yearbook staff. My friend from grade school was on the staff, too, plus some other girls and 1 guy. We had a lot of fun. Our advisor was one of my teachers, very nice lady.
The only sport I really liked to play was volleyball, and at that time there was no VB team at our school. My children went to my HS, the only one interested in any activities was my DD. She was on several sports teams. They finally had VB when she was there, her favorite sport! That was fall, then basketball in winter and track & field in the spring. Plus they had 'Powder Puff' football games, girls play, boys cheer. She was very good in each of the sports. I rushed there after work to cheer her on.
I wish I had been closer to the HS all 4 yrs, I would have enjoyed a lot of the other activities. Oh well.
Chutz, I love Mancini and Mercer, beautiful song!
Sassy, how brave to get up on the stage! I wouldn't have had the nerve to do that in HS.
Some happy memories, thank you Chutz.
God bless.  Alice.
