This weekend was my class reunion held at Chapel Hill Country Club (alias, Bureau Valley County Club or Hunter's Ridge Country Club.) We had approximately 32 attend out of a class of approx. 199. Unfortunately, we have seven classmates residing in heaven. I hope they were watching over us.
A BBQ dinner was provided by Neal & Shorty's which very tasty with a choice of brisket, pulled pork or chicken. All usual side dishes such as potato salad, taffy apple salad (my favorite) along with cole slaw and baked beans.
We didn't have a DJ or band just visited. Kathy Seidel, our host (pictured above), provided some interesting trivia questions about Princeton High School and answers to keep us on our toes. The memory table included our yearbooks and pictures of those that passed away. After dinner many of us grabbed the yearbooks to look at the pictures and compare notes about what we knew about the others who were not able to attend. The interesting thing was I felt that most of us have not change so much just our hair styles. (Below is Carmen Wilson Rod and Norine Catlano Tithof)
There was a few of the girls who joined in a chorus or two of our school song. They did a great job. We could have been standing at a football game. It certainly helped bring back fond memories of cool fall nights, cheerleaders, pom pom girls, band and flag corps marching at halftime.
After the reunion ended, we adjourned to Wise Guys Bar & Restaurant to finish catching up on what everyone has been doing and telling stories.
I hope our fellow classmates will start planning to be at the next reunion in five years. Please mark your calendars to join us.
Yours in quilting,
