Class of 1959

We, the Class of 1959, celebrated our 50th class reunion on April 24 and 25, 2009. This blog is about sharing memories of our class reunions and a long ago life at our Alma Mater's, S.F.X.A. and S.A.H.S. Good memories of days gone by but not forgotten! A gift to my classmates. ~Marian Love Phillips ~

Homecoming


October 28 dawned fair and clear and ten little girls I could mention were happy and excited. But after dinner (a very light one, I might add) the clouds rolled back and heavy, and then the same ten little girls were said and prayerful. Because as you all remember that was the night of Homecoming and the ten little Sponsors wanted to make their appearance that night. That afternoon (when the skies had cleared) Mr. Ford came up to S.F.X.A. to show these girls what to do. Then the excitement mounted higher and higher.

Nearly all arrived bright and early (I did say nearly) to get their large gold mums and inspect all the pretty red cars!! Everyone looked so nice in their suits and hats, and especially Merry Christmas i her green velvet suit and her long red Thunderbird (Oh! excuse me I meant Mary Campbell, those colors confused me for a minute!!)

Well, on with the story. Our three Cheerleaders for the night, Beckey, Dooley, and Jo were presented with gold mums, and they certainly were surprised!!!

The Sponsors had a surprise too when their red Pontiac wouldn't start and half-time and they had to pile into the other two cars. But all turned out happy, even though that crack Shirley M. was sitting in was a little uncomfortable.,

At half-time the Sponsors were introduced and here they are:

QUEEN ~ ~ Mary Campbell

Senior~~~~Sponsor
Teddy Marshall~~~~~Betty Ann Smartt
Ray Terry~~~~~Shirley Habeeb
Jackie Wood~~~~Mary Campbell
William Cooke~~~~Delia Durst
Perry Hale~~~~Shirley Mullen
Jerry Cronin~~~~Judy Hale
John Hebler~~~~Kay Lavecchia
Joe Crevitt~~~~Frances Smith
Norbert Johnson~~~~Kay Stewart
Billy Gargaro~~~~Andrea Kelly

After the introductions, Mary was presented a large bouquet of mums, which she still has, pressed in a book (A VERY BIG BOOK)!!!

I would like to give a little recognition to Robert Wilkerson, who got Homecoming together, and who also drove the Queen's Thunderbird so carefully??!!

Also a little recognition for the DOORMAN in the car; I wonder how he rated such a ride??!!

As that is all for this year's Homecoming, I guess all I can say is "See you next year, about the same time and I know the same station!!!!"
