Lately I have been working on a sort of memory book for my high school class 50th reunion. I finally dug out my 'senior cords' yesterday. How many of you had these? Anyone?
|Here's the back. (btw I made the skirt) Records spun at the Hayloft (a place we went to dance), we were the 4-Way basketball champs, the movie "The Blob", a wiener dog in the pleat ... "Petroleum" down one side, "Panthers" down the other.|
Preparing for this class reunion has been really enjoyable. In addition to pictures and this skirt, I found some 4-H stuff, awards for journalism, reporting & music, class play books, and an old scrap book. I hope the booklet I'm doing will make a worthwhile memento for everyone. On the negative side it seems that very few are coming for the pre-party and banquet. There were only 17 in our graduating class to begin with and three guys are already dead. A few live out of state. So I'm guessing, from what I hear, that only about half of the original class will be there.
Actually I dread the drive back up to Bluffton for the reunion. Just got back from there two days ago, helping Mom make the transition, one more time, back to her apartment from the health care unit. She is settling in and it will be much slower this time. Lots of hard work for her. She doesn't seem quite as determined as she was last time ... But she's there.
God bless you all.
