Thanks to those who organized reunion

Many thanks to those classmates who expended their time and energy to put together our recent Everett High School class of 1952 reunion.

It seems impossible it’s been 62 years since all those fresh-faced youngsters burst through the front doors of our school auditorium (Now Everett’s Civic Auditorium), diplomas in hand, ready and excited to face whatever the future was to hold. Some would continue their education, others would enter the workplace, while some would opt to serve our country in the military. More than a few high school sweethearts would marry within the next few years.

It was a fun afternoon getting reacquainted, and I think everyone had a good time.

We missed those who are no longer with us.

To all my fellow grads (kids) of the class of 1952, “Happy 80th or 81st birthday this year.

Although we all have aged “a bit,” the facade of dear EHS remains as lovely as it was in 1952.

Until we meet again, may God bless, and remember, “Keep those old bodies movin’ and groovin’.
