52nd Class Reunion!

A good time was had by all!

I have heard nothing but really great reports!

Right now, I only have the approximate attendance:

I heard the food served at the Legion was magnificent!
This was compliments of Denny R. and Nancy -
They did a GREAT job!

We THANK you!

Much of it had to do with the food our class used to eat, back when we were in High School.
Like fish fries from Eddie's, food which we ordered from the Drive-Ins,
food from the diner in Auburn etc.

Below, you will see 3 of the recipes which were served by Denny R.,
and he is willing to share with the class --

You can click on the thumbnails below, to see/or print out, larger views of the recipes:

Thanks muchly, Denny!

Burton received a phone call that the Legion
was going to be used by another group, on Sunday AM;
so a group of Class of '57 volunteers went over to the Legion,
after the Alumni Banquet, and cleaned it up.

I think 8 or 10 classmates worked to clean up the Legion,
and with so many volunteers, it was pretty much done in half an hour.

THANKS to those of you who offered your services.

See what I mean about our class??

The Sunday Brunch at Springside was shared with the Class of '58!

Ron put a phone call through to Punch,
while at Springside Inn,
and much of the class had a chance to chat with him.

Punch says he plans to be with us next year.

Good, Punch ---- I hope I will be there, also!

Our Class of '57

By Phyllis Drabel Abrams
(June 19, 2009)

Another weekend together, the class of "Fifty-Seven";
Including those from up above, looking down on us from heaven.
Also with us, are classmates unable to attend.
Memories involving all of us, never ceasing to end.

The class of Fifty-Seven, was born in September of forty-four.
Rug in hand, scared to death, knowing each day, we would be back for more.
"Fifty-Seven" uniquely formed, on that very first day of school.
Whoever thought we would feel now, that was really cool?

Our very first friends were made that day, think back, it is true,
Gaining more friends every year, working our way up through.
Having new teachers through the years, was also a coping way,
soon coming to remember each and everyone, like it was yesterday.

Many of us aren't real close any more, as we slowly drifted away,
although thoughts of those years together, are forever with us to stay.
It has come a time in our lives, these first memories are found,
Bringing laughter, and thoughtfulness, to those we surround.

Remember the homework, our grades, or even shedding a few tears,
So much to learn and remember, through all those growing years.
From changing classes, to having our lockers in the hall.
The parties, the Junior Prom, and even the Senior Ball.

Bus rides to all the games, singing to our hearts content.
Good times together, whatever we did, or where we went.
Learning to drive a car, or even a drag race or two,
All these memories we owe, to us all, including me and you.

As we sit here tonight reminiscing, the past is what we know.
Our class of "Fifty-Seven", starting so many years ago,
has always been, currently is, and forever will be,
We think, the greatest of classes, making it our own memory.

*As we part for another year, let's all think the very best
health and happiness forever, to all of us that are left.
And think of all the memories, that our hearts hold within
for the class of "Fifty-Seven", how close we have always been.


*The very last paragraph had been inadvertently omitted by Phyl.
