Photos: Petaluma celebrates 2021 high school graduates

After a year of coronavirus-induced challenges, Petalumans gathered recently to celebrate graduating high school seniors.

This year’s graduating class has confronted fires, floods, evacuations, power shut offs and a once-in-a-century pandemic in the past four years.

But the past year might have been the most difficult yet. Amid the maelstrom, though, the community has come together to celebrate graduates - including with a senior picture slideshow organized by a pair of moms in downtown Petaluma.

Recent graduation ceremonies helped put a celebratory capstone on the year.

St. Vincent de Paul High School’s graduation ceremony is set for 4 p.m. Friday.
