Turnin' 65 Gathering 2018

"Turnin' 65" Gathering 2018

Saturday, April 21, 2018

'71 Graduates and fellow Elementary & Jr School Classmates 1959-1971, and our childhood friends who transferred out and did not graduate with us.

Where are we now?  World Map of our class members' cities, states, countries (approx)

Moody Blues  Jefferson Airplane  Hits of the 1960s

1952 & 1953 Baby Boomers

Class members and our guests, totaling 56, enjoyed a mini reunion and comaraderie at the Barn Door to celebrate "turnin' 65"

It was nice to see everyone, and to be oh so grateful that we are still here and able to get together now and then.  We reflected on our class members who have passed away, and most recently, Henry.
