Roses for the Graduates"Love it is a flower, And you it's only seed".  
Annually, at the awarding of diplomas, the Gill-Montague Education Fund presents each senior with a single rose in their class color.  Following the diplomas, each senior brings their rose to someone special in their life who is attending their graduation.  The surprise, warm hugs and tears remind everyone of the joy in celebrating our young people as they for forward in the direction of their dreams.
The Rose
Some say love, it is a river
that drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor
that leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love, it is a hunger
an endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower
and you, it's only seed
It's the heart, afraid of breaking
that never learns to dance
It's the dream, afraid of waking
that never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
who cannot seem to give
And the soul, afraid of dying
that never learns to live
When the night has been too lonely
and the road has been too long
And you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter
far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed that with the sun's love,
In the spring becomes the rose
