Back When We Were Kids
Some of my favorite stories from Cherry Road School alumni involve walking to and from school. Everyone seems to remember slogging home for lunch and back again in all kinds of weather. Kids were tough then, no parents waiting out front in cars. At best we had bikes, left unlocked in the bike-rack out front, sometimes for days at a time.
Many old-timers also remember lunches made and served by mothers in the cafeteria (gym) as a way to earn money for the senior trip. Those delicious meals are remembered fondly, and it's clear the mothers prepared these dishes with care. What a treat it must have been not to have to walk home in the snow and wind and back again, instead to spend a winter's lunchtime with friends and their mothers in the cafeteria.
Wouldn't it be wonderful to have some of those recipes for a Cherry Road School cookbook?
