The first time I remember seeing her, she was the shy little girl hiding behind her mother peeking out to see who was who. Over the years, I watched as the shy little girl became a dancer in Rocky Thompson's dance class recital, a volleyball player in high school and almost overnight Lynn was graduating from Swanville High School.
Surrounding Lynn Messerich are four generations - grandmother, Alyce Bacon, mother, Cookie, sister, Amy Schafbuch, niece, Taylor Schafbuch and father, Skip.
High school graduation is about friends. Pictured left to right are Swanville High School graduates Crystal Thompson, Tammy Gouldin, Karla Johnson, Emily Gamble, Lynn Messerich and Allison Gutormson.
And a last celebration before entering the wide, wide world of adults - The Graduation party. Dad chats with friends, mom makes sure to record the event and Lynn meets the guests including Norm and Annabelle Pfaff (bottom right picture).
CONGRATULATIONS TO LYNN AND ALL OF THOSE SENIORS WHO MADE IT! HAVE A GOOD LIFE!
