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!

Last night, Ina Lott Whittington and I met up with Jane Cathy, Rita Martin Holland and Ann Freutel Gilman in a hotel room at Wingate By Wyndham and had a fun time remembering the old days and catching up on what we have been doing with our lives. Soon, Kay Hess Simms and her husband Jim joined us, also, Mary Love Angelo Simrall and Vera Marshall Brown showed up. In the parking lot while we were leaving to get something to eat at 8:30, Theresa Martin Kitowski and her husband, Chuck and Bobbie Banchetti Dickens (with purple hair) showed up. It was so good to see and visit with everyone. Here are some candid photos I took last night of the reunion gang-to-be in the hotel room.
