The Class of 1962

Class of 1962 Reunion 1

Last night the Marysville, Kansas, High School Class of 1962 held its reunion dinner. I thought my high school class was small, with about 160 graduates. MHS had 83 students in Carolyn's year. These are nice, nice people. It was fun for me to be the unexpected class photographer. 

After dinner there was an interesting discussion about whether to have the next class get-together in 5 or 10 years. The members of the class are now in their late 60s. What are the odds?

I got so many good images this weekend: up and down the old main street; inside the movie theater that was built a century ago as what we would now call a health club (the remains of the swimming pool are now under the main auditorium); the old Union Pacific Railroad depot, a beautiful bit of Spanish Colonial architecture, which will be razed unless the community finds the money to preserve it. We'll be going with these images for days and days.

I apologize for the lack of comments on friends' blogs of late. There have been lots of activities and I don't get to do my post until late night. We should be back in St. Louis by dinner time tonight and I will get back on a regular schedule.

I had 71 in my graduating class. I have ONE best bud from 'em all. Really don't want to see them again either. That's me.

There were 750+ on my class in 1964. Some folks I never knew. I'd be willing to be this group has been close since elementary school. I know C. had fun!

Aside from the odd person I've stayed in touch with from high school, I have very little interest in the rest, so I doubt I'd ever go back for reunions.

For the spouse of the classmate, you have been impressively involved with the reunion. My class was about 250 people, I think. They aren't all good friends, but there are many good people in the class. We have been doing them every five years. I skipped the last one because I had something else to do, but I will probably go to the next one, which is the 50th.

Great job Bob, you got some super portraits here. I only know where a couple of my classmates are these days, high school was in Central Africa and they have flown wide and far these days.

I wouldn't have a clue how to trace my old class mates and I'm not sure I'd enjoy seeing my own age in other people's eyes either. But this get-together could change my point of view.

So - what did they decide: 5 years or 10 years ?
