55th Reunion
Return to Home Page
Ed Seamon entertained the crowd with his "10 Easy Questions for
MHS '51 Graduates"

The 55th reunion is history and a good time was had by all.  If you were unable to attend, you missed two wonderful days.  Those attending spent time reminiscing at the Friday night social held at the Middletown Arts Center.
For the occasion, Jack Howard created another special rendering for the Class of '51 and each classmate attending received a copy.  Thanks to Jack again for this keepsake of our reunion--a picture of the Manchester Hotel where we have all spent many enjoyable evenings
The original was framed by Jack and presented to Janet Robinson in memory of Jack Robinson by Joyce & John Schraffenberger.

On Saturday, we all traveled to the Kentucky side of the Ohio River and boarded the "Celebrations" Riverboat for a 3-hour dinner cruise.  The food was delicious, the weather warm and sunny, and the scenery spectacular on both sides of the river as we traveled up stream.  We passed downtown Cincinnati, viewed the Great American Ball Park, floated under the many colorful bridges and checked out the many riverfront restaurants along the way.

The Committee especially wants to thank the classmates who generously donated money to help cover the shortfall we experienced as a result of lower than expected attendance.

Check the website from time to time for upcoming events--we're good for another year--thanks for the new website donations!

We look forward to the 60th--who wants to help?
