In 2004 when this production was well underway
Mary was the very last classmate to send us pictures.
She has a story to tell you about being late.
 
 
 
The High School Years and Later
 
 
 
ABOUT BEING LATE
 
Mr. Laury, my Chemistry teacher wrote in my album, "If you aren't late getting there you ought to arrive OK. Keep trying."  I guess he was right.
 
I remember I was always late to Homeroom. Maybe the fact that he was always massaging the football players had something to do with it. (Ha)

The "After Reunion Party" in Branson

When the 60th Reunion was in the planning stage, Luann Mitchell Nelson contacted several classmates and asked if they might be interested in having a party in Branson, Missouri after the "official" reunion.
 
Luann called it a Farewell Party as this might very well be the last opportunity we will have to see each other again.
 
Nine classmates and seven spouses arrived in Branson on Sunday afternoon.  *

The Branson party was called a Farewell Party.
No one knows what the future may hold for each of us.
 
At our age it is possible we will never see each other again.
We hope that is not the case.  But you never know.
