Once upon a time there were about one hundred young people who lived in the small Pennsylvania town called Downingtown. The year was 1959. These kids were the last class of the Fifties.
They graduated June 2, 1959 on a grassy high school football field behind their school. They were full of hope and aspiration for what the future would hold.
Fast forward fifty-three years. These "kids" were now in their early 70's. Perhaps old of body but still young of mind as they gathered together at the Chicago Bar and Grill restaurant in Lionville, Pennsylvania for their 53rd class reunion.
This is a iMovie that I made of that gathering of those former classmates. All of the photos were taken by my blogger buddy Mark H. of "Our Simple Lives......" One photo was taken by me which in included because Mark the photographer is in the photo. See if you can spot him.
Thank you Mark and thank you fellow classmates for making our reunion such a wonderful occasion.
See you all next year!
