How the 30th Reunion Came to Be

Several weeks before Labor Day Weekend of 1991, Fred Black and Jim Reardon called me and announced that they were coming East to celebrate our class's 30th reunion. For some reason a reunion had not been planned so I thought it would be fun to try and organize a "Last Minute" reunion. Unfortunately there was only enough time to reach 82 of our classmates over the next two weeks. We had 72 people attend the cocktail party and dinner of which 42 were members of our class.

It was a great evening and we were all thankful when Holly Horton picked up the ball for our 40th reunion. Sadly, Holly passed away before the reunion at which point Barbara, Pat and Paul followed Holly's lead and brought it all together on August 11, 2001. I hope you enjoy the pictures that turned up from our 30th and with my memory getting a little sketchy, I hope most of the names are correct.

Reunion Tour-September 1, 1991

Art, Art Weber, Fred Black & Jim Reardon visit MHS!

The MHS Athletic Fields. Coach Joe D. yells, "To the fence and back boys".

The bar at our old hangout "Arthurs". It's name has changed to "The Hideout Cafe." Anyone remember Jim Reardon opening clams in the little clam bar that used to be to the left of the front door? Or Art Weber getting rave reviews down the street in the kitchen at Dick & Dora's?

Alhambra Beach. We tried to master water skiing here behind Glenn Scott's boat.

Jones Beach Hotel "JBH". There were no chairs flying out of the windows on this visit!

Finally on the other side of the "JBH" bar.

Reunion Fishing Trip on Long Island Sound-September 2, 1991

We closed out the weekend on friend Percy Tatem's boat the Patriot, catching & releasing striped bass & blues.

Fred Black & Jim Reardon relax before flights back to Seattle, WA and Franklin, OH.
