Re: St. Patrick's Day
    Just another memory from the past at Col-Hi. Remember if you didn't
have green on before you went to school, you could come home with a lot
of "pinch" marks on your body. Now, since green was one of our colors,
there really wasn't an excuse not having any green on; unless you came
from another part of the world.

                  night, but it's gone now with a day of sunshine.

Re: "Bringing Down the House" Party
To: All Bombers Attending the "Bringing Down the House" Party
   The Boosters have arranged to have Ben Franklin Transit run a shuttle
from the Fran Rish Stadium parking lot and Carmichael's parking lot
because of the limited parking at RHS due to the remodeling. Do
yourselves a favor and take it, cause having been at the school a great
deal this year, I can tell you it is not easy to park there. A big
resounding "Thank-You" to the Boosters for providing this.
   For those of you who have not gotten your tickets to this party,
don't delay! The party is this weekend and don't miss your chance to
spend a great evening with The Kingsmen and your Bomber family. It
promises to be an evening of sheer fun and delight. See you all there! 

Re: RHS Journalism Class fundraiser this week at Barnes & Noble
    This voucher can be printed and used at Barnes & Nobel for the valid
dates. If customers use the voucher when making purchases at the Columbia
Center Mall Barnes & Noble between March 18th and March 25th, 2005, the
RHS Journalism will receive a percentage of those sales. Any funds raised
will be used to help subsidize the cost of Journalism students attending
this year's National convention that is being held in Seattle this
Spring. The convention will be a great skill building event for our
journalism students.

Re: RHS Journalism Class General FundRaiser Form (Printable form)
    Robin Morris of Richland High School Sandstorm and RHS Columbian fame
is asking for help to get her journalism students to the National High
School Journalism Convention in Seattle the first part of next month.
Robin and her students are so dedicated that they are giving up part of
their spring break to attend this convention and they need our help. This
would be a classic Bombers helping Bombers if we could each of us donate,
and sponsor a kid, to help with their expenses. Thanks in advance to you
out there who help them out.
