Rocke Wilson has been collecting and scanning Riggins high school annuals. So far he has scanned 1948 and much of 1950, then all of 51 through 71, and 74, 75, 76, 80, 81, 82, 85 and 89, plus he has the seniors from the first nine years which were 1941 through 1949. He has put these all as jpegs on a DVD. If you are interested, he can mail you a copy. He is asking for a donation of $5 plus $2.32 S&H. The donation goes to the Riggins ambulance to help fund new equipment. Even if you still have your annuals it’s really a much more convenient way to view them and you can zoom in when you want or even print them. Rocke has raised about $170 for the ambulance fund. Not big money but every little bit helps.
