Dear Classmates. It’s September 22nd and our 55th Reunion is now History. There where about 80 people in total who came to our Reunion, but we really did not expect a hugh turnout like we had at our 50th. Half a century is a long time out of High School and we were amazed at that turn out in 2007. Our list of friends in our memorial is getting longer with each coming year, as would be expected. Actually the passing of our friends and classmates is actually front end loaded. We really have not lost so many in the past five years.
As a party favor we choose to not give out photo albums with pictures of very old people but opted to keep it simple and give out 4 ½ “ X 11” booklets that contained some History of our town and the surrounding cities along with a review of where we had the three days of events and photos of those facilities. Also are the listing of our friends and classmates who are no longer with us and what we thought was the most correct of names, addresses and phone numbers of our classmates. But, as we should have expected we picked up 16 new addresses for our classmates at the Reunion. We couldn’t reprint the books so I have made the corrections to this Web-Site. You can print out the classmates section of 57maroons.com and have (what we Hope) a complete up to date set of addresses.
After this latest update I will no longer keep this web-site updated but will extend the air time for 1 additional year. It’s been almost 8 years since I started working on it and I am tired and there have been no volunteers to take the helm.
There was a hand vote at our Saturday night Dinner regarding having a 60th Reunion in five years. Naturally the majority want to do it again. Maybe someone else will make a new web-site.
Enjoy your retirement and stay healthy.
