Class Reunion 2017

Our class from Delavan Community High School meets in our hometown for the annual Alumni Banquet every five years. Next year in June will be our 55th! I have no idea how those years have passed us by. Here's the roster of the class in our small town.


I am third from the right, bottom row.


Center right, bottom row, third from the right of classmates. Our class rep Mr. Hubbs makes it back for our class reunions and is a dear friend to many of us on Facebook. Dorothy Murphy is on the far left, also a class rep, but it has been many years since she could attend. We have lost only two of our classmates: Carl Key and Martha Murphy. 

Some still live in Delavan or in the area, while most of us have moved to places all over the U.S. But when we get together, many of the years fade away. It's nice to have a small class from a small town. 

Thanks for reminiscing with me, my friends. Have a wonderful weekend.

reunions have a way of slipping up on you...

I was class of '61. I went to my 50th but so am not into reunions. I wanted to do that to bring the 'kids' to their current reality. Also an interesting experience but may not go again. Some go every year or so as our high school sometimes has reunions with several classes.

We just attended my husband's 55th this past Saturday. It was sad to see that out of a class of 509, over 100 of them had passed away. Enjoy. I like going to reunions to catch up, but after you cover some of the standard territory, there isn't a lot left to talk about. I was not as connected to my classmates as I was the church youth group.

It's funny how peoples lives turn out differently. Class of 65 for me. Some of my classmates are great grandparents many times over. I just have one two year old granddaughter.

A wonderful trip into youth. Glad you went.

I've never been to a reunion. The few people I'd want to keep in touch with I do anyway, and I wouldn't want to see anyone else from back then.

How cool that you go to the reunions every 5 years. I haven't been to a class reunion since my 10th year reunion, which was an absolute blast!
I live so far away from them now but I hear about them from friends who attend. They get smaller every time.

I love to reminisce. Thanks for sharing with us!

I always enjoy seeing the old photos! I am the class of 69 so you are a tad older than me:)

i love looking at high school photos. such style. no comparison to nowadays. i love looking at my parents ... my mom went to a college that only allowed skirts and dresses ... pants we never allowed. some times gloves too. even hats to church. i love that. maybe not having to have restriction but just the style is what i mean. have a love week! i enjoy you sharing your special moments.

Your post made me smile, Linda. There were more than 800 in my graduating class. :-)

Jeanne said...

Hi Linda, Class reunions are always fun and reconnecting is good for us all. Even for a couple of days. I am glad you are looking forward to your next reunion. My class was almost 1,000 in number and reunions are a huge undertaking. I have only been to two. My class is 1958.

Have a happy week and Blue Monday.
Hugs, Jeanne
