Thank you, Ridgewood! Thank you, Jamboree!
Once again, I had a great time with our annual Board of Ed cameos in Jamboree. Last night was the last night of the four-night run of “That's Life.” As you can see, they did another great job of dressing us up in embarrassing costumes! (That's me and Michele Lenhard...Sheila Brogan and Bob Hutton were similarly decked out...Charlie Reilly was unable to join us.) That's OK, it's a great show, positive energy, remarkable talent (among the others, haha)…and a generous $65,000 raised for scholarship money for Ridgewood High School graduating seniors! Great job, everyone! As this remarkable tradition's last song goes, "Thank you, Ridgewood..."
