Savannah High Reunion Part One

We motored down to Savannah on Thursday afternoon to be rested and ready for Marvin's 50th class reunion.  A Big Shout Out to my sis in law, Mina, for allowing us to stay at her home while she was out of town traveling. We have the best family!!

Friday afternoon we met with the other members of the Class of 1969 for a buffet meal. This was casual night and a lot of the "kids" wore their Savannah High tees.

In addition to the dinner there were boiled peanuts for those who enjoy them!

There was a nice memory table as well.

The reunion committee spent a year getting ready for this weekend and their attention to detail was amazing.

We had a Three Star Marine General with us for the evening. He is pictured with Sissy, one of the planning committee members. The General was one of the distinguished class members who were saluted this weekend.

Here is Marvin with his old friends from elementary school through high school.

Everyone had a good time visiting and renewing old ties. You can tell by the smile on Marvin's face he was so happy to be there! Ed and Susan Johnson are on Marvin's left. Marvin and Susan went to elementary school together . Ed and Marvin were high school friends and GT alumni. Susan and Ed were high school sweethearts who are still together after all these years. Paul Freundt is on Marvin's right. He is a talented artist and has a piece in the Smithsonian!

The Class of 1969 is certainly a distinguished class at Savannah High.

Looks to have been a happy reunion for all. The venue is beautiful, too. How interesting to see how the lives of people have turned out.

We are planning to make a trip to Savannah next year to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary.

What fun!! My 50th is next year. Not sure there will be a reunion. There were only 47 in my class and eight of them are no longer with us. Thanks for sharing the fun pictures!!

How wonderful!! Such accomplished people! I saw a photo of you on Faceook and you were drop dead gorgeous! I bet Marvin was proud as a peacock of you!!
