It has been suggested on our Facebook Group that since many of us are turning 66 this year that we have a Class of 66 reunion somewhere on Route 66 (Falcon’s Park, Speedy’s, Garda’s etc.).

Been there, done that, still eating leftovers

I turned off 422 and proceeded down an asphalt road for about three miles, then turned onto gravel lane. At places there was quite a bit of grass between the two tire tracks as the narrow lane wound up over a hill, down, and up again. At the end of the lane was Jim and Linda’s place (photo above).

There were shady spots to sit and chat. We played a lot of “guess who” giving each other hints that were helpful or misleading. Sometimes a look at old yearbook pictures helped. As the afternoon progressed, the years melted away. There was lots of laughter and sad moments too. As John said, we are still 18 inside.

Food was plentiful and delicious. As it got dark and time to leave, we kept delaying. I don’t think anyone wanted to say goodbye.

Several people asked about keeping in touch by email. I can set up a listserv (email discussion list) here. I will send directions to everyone who gave email addresses.

I posted photos in the Photo Gallery section. Tom posted some photos before the reunion. There is plenty of room left. Especially for those classmates who were unable to attend, we would like to see your faces again!

Reunion request

Jim and Linda have requested that as many attendees as possible bring chairs. They had planned to borrow chairs from the fire station, that that is no longer possible. Please contact them at the phone number or email in your invitation if you have questions or can help out.

1966 to 2006 – Reunion plans


OK classmates! Here it is 40 years later. Please try to come to the reunion on July 15, 2006. It will be casual, a picnic at a private home in R.D. 1 Ford City. RSVP by June 17. Come at 1 PM and stay for a meal in the early evening. Please contribute $15 per person attending to help cover the costs of food, non-alcoholic beverages, and supplies.

If you can’t come in person, lets try to catch up here. You will need to register to leave a comment. No fee, if you need help please contact me.

If you would like to add posts, please let me know and I will set that up.

If you have a personal or business web site, I would be happy to add it to the list of links.
