GALLERY: Richford High School Class of 2021 graduates celebrate next step

RICHFORD — The streets were alive with maroon and gold Friday evening as the Richford High School Class of 2021 celebrated graduation. With an escort from the Richford Fire Department and Franklin County Sheriff's Department, Richford seniors paraded down Main Street from the elementary school, looping through town before arriving at the high school for graduation ceremonies. The 16-member class completed its high school career with an indoor ceremony at the high school gymnasium, where family and friends — by invitation only due to the COVID-19 pandemic — celebrated the seniors taking that next step into higher education or the workforce.

Tuesday’s D1 semifinal is the perfect example of why I love our county

I’ve watched a lot of games this year, and many of them were inside empty gyms or ice rinks. It was a strange and lonely experience. I mean, I could get any shot I wanted without standing in front of someone (insert laughter), but the shots I wanted most were impossible to take: the ones of the crowd going wild as they cheered for 'their' team.
