The weekend started off with Bowling and Pizza at the bowling alley on Tibet Ave. It was a good way to loosen up and renew old acquaintances. And yes, they were all able to bowl with no injuries!!
Saturday evening was a big party at the Forest City Gun Club. Shrimp Boil for appetizer...yummo, then music, photo booth and a late dinner.
The photo booth was a big hit!!
Marvin's old friend, Steve, and his fiancee, Beth, were in attendance from the DC area.
Ed and Susan....who graciously invited us to stay with them while we were in Savannah. Marvin went to elementary school with Susan, then he and Ed met up in junior high. Ed and Marvin also shared the Georgia Tech experience. Ed is a retired engineer from Michelin in Greenville, SC. Susan is a retired calculus professor from Greenville Tech. They came back to Savannah to enjoy their marshfront home in Richmond Hill. It sure was nice waking up to the view from their back porch. We really enjoyed our time with the Johnsons!
Dressed in Blue in honor of the Savannah High Blue Jackets.
Sunday Morning was a brunch at the home of Nancy, one of the teachers at Savannah High when this bunch graduated. Nancy was a brand new teacher and not much older than her students.
Sissy, Marvin's partner in crime!! She and Marvin worked together on the last three reunions for the class of 1969. Of course many others helped as well but Sissy really pulled everything together in Savannah. Sissy is also a mesothelioma survivor....15 years, the longest surviving patient in the US. So glad to know this wonderful lady who is also a teacher in Chatham County!!
And now it is time to get back to 2014 after a weekend in 1969! Hope I can make the time change!!
