Nostalgia at Its Best - My Mom's Retirement Party

by Molly
(New Jersey, USA)

My mother taught kindergarten for several years. Stopped to raise us. Then returned to teach kindergarten at the same school. She taught for over 30 years.
We invited all of her students (that we could find) to her retirement party. Some of the older ones had mom as a teacher as did their children. So there were all ages present.
We were able to use the school gymnasium and lunch room and serve the typical school lunches. It was a Saturday morning, many could attend.
It was a lot of work to contact people and get it all together, but it was SO WORTH IT.
We didn't do much in the way of decorations. We did a few, but we wanted everyone to see the school as it was when they attended.
This party was all about the people who attended!
Thanks for letting me share this wonderful experience.
