Reminiscence
by Geary Larrick, Stevens Point, Wisconsin

As I read about the forthcoming Memorial Day Service to be held at the Cumberland Cemetery, I am reminded of Memorial Day, 1958, fifty one years ago, when I was a member of the Cumberland High School Band directed by Robert Bird. My father, Clyde Henderson Larrick, was principal and executive head of the Cumberland Spencer School District, about to move to a similar position at Old Washington while the family moved that summer to Cambridge.

I was a freshman at Cumberland High School in 1957-58, active in music and sports in addition to concentration upon academics. As a trumpet player in the high school band, Mr. Bird volunteered me to play "Taps" on Memorial Day at the Cumberland Cemetery that May.

I was assigned second bugle part, and played the echo a bit over the hill behind an outdoor toilet. It is one of my fascinating memories of the time I spent in Cumberland, Ohio. This April, 2009, I celebrated my first piano lesson in Cumberland in April, 1949, sixty years ago, with Miss Eula Carr, a cook at Cumberland Elementary School who taught piano lessons, too. She was very good.

In April, 2009, I played piano at Washington Service Learning Center in Stevens Point, Wisconsin.
