Another Mother’s Day Gift Idea: Michelle Brafman’s New Novel

Our classmate, Michelle Brafman, has released a stunning debut novel! Titled Washing the Dead, it really is a perfect Mother’s Day gift, focusing on multi-generational relationships between mothers and daughters. You will recognize some landmarks Michelle references.

You can purchase the book at Amazon, and you can learn more about Michelle’s writing at her website.



Scholarship Night, May 20th

The ’82 Project CHOICE Scholarship will be awarded at the WFBHS Senior Awards ceremony in the high school auditorium on May 20th at 6:30pm. Each year, it is a highly emotional presentation, honoring a graduating senior for exhibiting the traits of the CHOICE acronym: Community, humanity, originality, integrity, character and excellence. We try to make a night of it, so if you want to attend, contact Beth (Brahe) LaFond to stay updated on plans to meet up before, during and after the awards presentation.
