9/2/08 Academic Convocation

Yep, it's that time of year again. Today is the beginning of a new school year. Today is ceremony and meetings and tomorrow is the first day of classes. I love the pomp and circumstance of bag pipe and academic regalia. Note that the bag piper is joined by his grandson who was skipping school to be a part of college life for the morning.

Here's the official sign for Academic Convocation. You don't see many of those white signs with the black plastic removable/movable letters on it around here. You see these sawhorse type stanchions with posterboards on them announcing the event of the day. Across the street and just a little north, the American Legion is announcing their BBQ Chicken event for Saturday with a very similar sign. There's something much more personable about these signs. And since everyone is either walking or driving slowly, this kind of sign is very effective. Gotta love it.
