Mini-Reunion Get-together 8-22-2019

 

Thirteen of our '57 classes plus two spouses came to our August 22 Mini Class Reunion at the Outpost.These were: Dawn Stiles, Carol Pride, Judy and Bill Atkinson, Marilyn and Mike Kosloski, Letha Collins, Jim Dorin, Donna Root Forbush, Jean Rammacher Spencer, Bill Thomas, Lynda Pettit Collins, Gary and Marcia Hoskins, and Bill Dailey.
 
This is the same place we had our Friday the 13th gathering last August. 
 
We met at 1:00, ate somewhere around 2:00, then mostly broke up around 4:30. Some of us went to Eastern for the tour and ceremonies.  Bill Dailey was interviewed there which was shown on the 6 o’clock news!
 
It was casual, we all had a really good time, lots of conversation and catching up on things.
 
We’re going to do this again next year for sure - maybe sooner.

 Friday the 13th Casual Get-together 7-13-2018

 

Fifteen of our '57 classes plus a couple of guys from other classes came to our

Friday 13th casual get together at the Outpost on South Pennsylvania. These were: Dawn Stiles, Carol Pride, Mandy Lawton, Judy and Bill Atkinson, Marilyn and Mike Kosloski, Richard Dunham, Letha Collins, Ira Purchis, Jim Keyton, Jim Dorin, Donna Root Forbush, Jean Rammacher Spencer, Bill Thomas, Joe Malatinsky ('56), and Jay Lane ('58). Jay drove Jim Keyton to the lunch.

 

This is the same place we had a Friday gathering for our 60 years reunion last August. We met on the 'patio', which is kind of an open-air back room.

 

It was really casual, we all had a good time, and especially enjoyed Richard Dunham telling his stories, and Letha telling Millie Toogood stories.

 

We started at 2, ate somewhere around 3, then mostly broke up around 4:30.

Take a look at our photos.

Such a good time, we may do this again. We'll see if there is any interest. . .
