With a peaceful sunset fading behind Lake
McDonald in Montana's Glacier National
Park, Stacy Wahe finds the background per-
fect for a peaceful reflection.
Fitting more suitcases in the trunk than
there is room for tends to be tedious work.
People to People trips provide Barb Eagle
and Colette Chickris with world travel ex-
perience. The two girls depart from the Mo-
line airport headed for Europe.
The summer is made for enjoying the park.

Sun bathe on sandy beaches of Ja-
maica? Ski down the snowy moun-
tains of Canada? Simply take a vaca-
tion anywhere?! Anyone of these
suggestions appealed to Rocky stu-
dents. Whether the "get away" oc-
cured during the summer or winter
seasons, students took the trips any-
way they came.
Seniors Jim Moore, John Hass,
Pam Hird and Kelley Wendland
traveled to Florida for the Key Club
Convention in July of 1983. "It was
great to have a Florida tan this sum-
mer," Pam said.
While Florida, the Sunshine
State, drew hoards of sun searchers,
other students traveled to such
places as Jamaica to sample the
tropical life as well as to Canada to

Skiing and sunbathing proved to
be the most popular vacation activi-
ties. Attending college and profes-
sional football games and major
league baseball games added an-
other facet to the vacation fun.
Funtime played an important part
in Rocky student's vacations. But it
was not all fun and games. Visiting
colleges required a large amount of
the senior's time as did homework
for a majority of the students. "I al-
ways ski over Christmas vacation,
so my homework ends up getting
done the night before vacation is
over," admitted senior Bart Roberts.
Although homework bogged
down vacations, the fun times of
basking in the sun, skiing down far
away mountains or doing the limbo
in Jamaica required much more
Many of Rocky's students didn't
have the opportunity to travel far
and wide as they kept themselveq
busy at various kinds of summert
jobs from being life guards to work-
ing at McDonalds. While they may
not have had as much fun, they end-
ed up with fatter wallets. Perhaps
these are the students who will trav-
el this summer while others will be
hard at work.

A week chock full of events and
preparations led up to the assembly,
parade, game and dance-all common
to the homecoming hubbub.
Once students found their seats at
the assembly, they found them-
selves overcome with laughter as
they watched the "jockettes" per-
form the renditions of favorite
After the preliminary assembly
events came the introduction of the
court and crowning of the King and
Queen. Included in the court were
as follows: Jim Moore, Joel Keim,
Brynn Sheley, Mark 0'Melia, Eric
Lundgren, Nancy LeWarne, Jane
Vogel, Vickie Streiter, Kristi
Fackel and Jami Handelman.
John Hass and Lisa Keys were
bestowed prince and princess, and
the reigning King and Queen were
crowned as William Clay and Linda
Hugs, kisses and a few tears of
happiness filled the fieldhouse
floor as congratulations passed
along as students left school headed
for the parade.
Although the wind blew strongly,
the floats held together long enough
to be judged. The freshmen placed
first, followed by seniors, juniors,
and sophomores placing 1st, 2nd,
and 3rd, respectively.
Following the parade, and ending
the first of two Homecoming even-
ings, was the game against the Quin-
cy Blue Devils which ended in vic-
tory for both varsity and sophomore
With a football victory and the
nervous anticipation of couples ad-
ded to the already party like atmo-
sphere, students attended the Home-
coming dance, held the evening
after the game. "A Little Bit of
Heaven" overtook the gym with bal-
loons, clouds and an air of Hheaven-
ly bliss" for those who attended.
Homecoming '83 left special
memories for the new freshmen as
their first dance, the seniors as their
last Homecoming dance, and even
for the sophs and juniors as another
in the list of activities they had en-
joyed at the Rock.
Posing as a clown allows Kristy McMillan
to spread happiness to the crowd with her
smiling mask, colorful balloons and hand-
fuls of candy.
