My brother, Don took the mic in response to being honored at the Garland HS Alumni Reunion last evening. He is the only remaining member of the Class of '46. He followed Virginia Bock who was in the Class of '36. The 2016 Officers and spouses are also shown at the Head Table. They are James Hartmann, Merle Schulz, Ila Deinert and Jane Piening. Members from the 60 and 50 year Classes were also recognized. The 50 year Class was the last one to graduate from GHS before being consolidated with Seward.
Here is Elaine and I with Dolores, my old HS girlfriend. She and I sat in the balcony of the Lincoln Theatre on the night of December 7, 1941 and heard radio reports from the projection room of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. She graduated a year after I did and we always enjoyed our occasional visits. Elaine is shown in this picture with Virginia, her daughter DeMaris and Dolores' daughter. During the Business Meeting, it was determined to meet for a noon luncheon next year rather than the evening meeting. With our youngest members having graduated 50 years ago, it seems that some are reluctant to drive at night. It's a tribute to our school loyalty that we had 70 in attendance last night.
