The Story: Mr. P attended the dedication ceremony for the new pool at his high school. He played water polo and swam all throughout high school. The pool was named for his water polo coach who introduced the sport to the area and coached at the school for decades. When the ceremony was over, Mr. P and other fellow alumni played each other in the new pool with Coach refereeing.
Dates on newspapers: I always jot down the date on newspaper pieces I save. When I add them to my scrapbook, I hand write the date near the story.
On not being present: This is one of the few events I’ve scrapbooked where I wasn’t actually there. I couldn’t go to the event and relied on Mr. P’s family saving newspapers and the program. I talked with him about his history with Coach before I wrote the captions.
By the time I made this page, Coach had passed away. He was only 65 and had just retired. He was such an instrumental person in my husband’s life and his loss was really hard. I’m really glad I saved everything from this event so we can show our kids later.
