Class of 2020 Commencement in the Park
Yesterday evening we heard the sound of "Pomp and Circumstance" coming from the park. Upon investigation, I saw that someone had the excellent idea of doing the graduation ceremony via a caravan of cars. Given the present circumstances of the banning of large indoor gatherings, it was the next best thing.
The dominant colors are apparently the school colors of Blake High School which is up New Hampshire Avenue from us.
The graduating seniors showed themselves through sunroofs and windows. Car horns were honking away.
I had a great time clapping and cheering these kids.
I noticed that sometimes one of the kids would recognize someone they knew in another car and shout out to them, reminding me that these students hadn't seen each other in months.
