An evening downpour and an unexpected Wissahickon win still couldn't put a damper on the farewell party for Roosevelt Field.
Hundreds braved the chilling rain on Friday night to celebrate the final chapter for Roosevelt Field – a fond farewell that combined a parade, Senior Night activities, a game against the Wissahickon Trojans, and whole lot of music, food and fun. While the game against the Trojans may not have been the victory for the Eagles most had expected (the Trojans prevailed, 28-16), the loss didn't put a damper on the party atmosphere.

For a detailed rundown of the game, see the story on The Times Herald's website.

Part two of this three-part series gives you the skinny on making classy, easy, crowd-pleasing food for less.
You can create a party that looks like a planner and caterer set up the spread for your graduate. Presentation makes a difference. Katharine Graham, former Washington Post publisher and party giver extraordinaire, wrote about how she ran out of chicken during a party and sent a worker to Popeye’s.
