Teacher Angela Ripley directs the seventh- and eighth-grade band at Harrison Central Jr./Sr. High School in Christmas tunes during the Seventh Annual Generations Social on Wednesday in the John W. Stephenson Center. Dozens of people joined students to bridge the gap between the young and young at heart with music, readings, doorprize drawings and other presentations. Students waited on guests and provided refreshments during the event.
