Things I remember about Albion High School:
The time a group of us dressed up as the Mickey Mouse Club for a Halloween dance. My third floor locker with Chalene Hampton. Going to get apples, with Carloyn Farley in a car (or truck?) with no floor, for the Football concessions. A very snowy Football game in Marshall where everybody got cold and the snow caused the lights to pop on the field. I don't remember the score but it seems the ball didn't go very far very fast. Everyone on the field was sliding all over.
