Thanks! The last effort drew more comments than any previously. It made me feel gooood. If you all have not read the various comments, maybe you should and then chime in.
Does anyone remember graduation night? It was on a Wednesday night, and we were all very well behaved. In more recent years, the trend has been to do “amusing” things and play jokes. I recall when my son graduated, someone produced a beach ball and it was tossed in the air and batted from one to another. I don’t think we had the intestinal fortitude to do anything outrageous. Truth be told, I really don’t remember a whole lot about the event, though I do recall sitting between Bob Schiebe and Pete Sweet. Here are the first three pages of the graduation program. Hope you find them legible.
I have absolutely no recall of a program as shown on page 3. But the band was there and we had various music selections and vocals by band members and singers. Did they play in their graduation robes? I do recall Pomp and Circumstance, though I thought it was played for our grand entrance.
I am hoping the programs will be large enough to be legible. One more question: Does anyone know why we had a Dean of Girls but not a Dean of Boys? I think the Vice Principal double hated but did not receive credit for it.
The theaters: I owe some photos of the Majestic and will get to that next time.
Who remembers Miss Huey? Another maiden teacher lady, Miss Huey taught English. Some years ago I heard a rumor about her demise during a summer vacation. The story I heard is that she was at home moving a chest of drawers. Somehow it tipped over on her and she was trapped underneath. They found her body some days later. Did anyone else ever hear that story? I presume it is not an urban legend.
The class history project and reunion follow up. I have started labeling the photos and was sad to realize that some people who attended are not in the posed pictures. Have not viewed the balance of those snapped by the wandering photographers. I will be checking out about production costs in the next week or so, though I still suspect it will be a couple of months till it is done.
