In Memoriam

       Dear Classmates and Friends,

Thank you to one and all for making our 50th reunion fantastic!

Sam Cunningham put it best when he reminded us that we all

knew each other BEFORE our adult adventures began and

made pretty powerful connections for life.

        Our weekend activities commenced with the Friday evening

cocktail party at Harry’s, and there were so many people (200+!)

that we spilled out of the Ranchero Room at both the

front and back. Standing room only!

          The Carriage Museum dinner dance on Saturday was one for the history books.  We had over 200 people enjoying the delicious dinner, the entertaining emceeing of the Drum Major himself Mitch Perry,

and some special comments from our classmate

Sam Bam Cunningham.  The dance floor was crowded all

evening long, thanks to The Duquanes, who brought

together members of their original band to perform.

The evening was a blast!

          The success of our reunion was the result of amazing teamwork

of committee members, volunteers from other SBHS classes,

and many of you. Everyone pitched in to help where needed,

including before the event when committee members and

classmates encouraged friends to attend, and Kate Ford's

email blasts were frequent reminders of the fun to come.

          We now hope to see many of you at the ALL-ALUMNI get together

at the SBHS flagpole on Saturday afternoon, October 5, because

"Once a Don, Always a Don." Otherwise, stay tuned for information about our 70th birthday party in a couple years!

          We're very grateful to our 2019 Reunion Committee members:

Finally, perhaps singer Tim McGraw said it best:

we take a little of each other everywhere."
