The first graduation to take place at Washington College Academy after Janice started to teach there in the spring of 1974, was quite an eye-opening for her! She was the faculty sponsor of the class who were supposed to get the flowers ready for the ceremony. The flowers were wild daisies and they were supposed to be picked from the field. It literally took two days for the whole class to pick enough daisies to make a daisy chain. Yes, I did take a picture. Even though it is not very clear, you can easily see the actual size of the chain, see below:
Yes, it took four young people to carry that chain! The graduation itself was not that unusual (see other pictures below), but we would never forget the daisy chain.
