A Trip Back in Time (John dela Howe 2008 Reunion)
This Saturday started a little different than our usual Saturday. Lois and I were waiting on Cindy to arrive for our trip to John dela Howe School for the 25th school reunion, which happens to be 5o years since we meet every two years and was started with the first in 1957.
This is not a reunion just for one class but a school reunion for anyone that was ever at John dela Howe, students, staff, friends and just about anyone who would like to join the fun.
Most Saturday I go for a run with some of my friends and fellow Running Club members and Delores and Cindy go to yard sales for their Saturday morning venture. Cindy arrived and she was elected to do the driving . After a stop at Hardees for breakfast we were on our way to John dela Howe School for a bi-yearly school reunion
Arriving at the school we registered and were given our name tags and a roster of Alumni members . I met some of my old classmates that I had not seen in 50 plus years . After looking at a lot of photographs dating from the twenties to the present day and finding some of my old classmates and friends from long ago later went to the dining hall for lunch.. The Old Main Building
Original Old School Building
After lunch we walked around the campus and saw some of the buildings . Later we had the business meeting which lasted about an hour and finally ended with a gathering on the front steps of the Old Main Building for a group picture. A little time was spent talking with all the old classmates and friends we had made during the visit. Then we headed home . I was just a great day and one we will remember for a long time....
Here are some photos of the day
