PICTURES FROM THE 60TH CELEBRATION OCTOBER 2 - 3, 2009

 
Thanks to Ginger and Jack Rawlins for these pictures of the Class of 1949 60th Reunion this past weekend.
I believe this was the best one we the 49ers have had--and we have had many.
 

To start the weekend, we had Jay and Wina Bates serving snacks at our mixer, then we thoroughly enjoyed seeing the Yellow Jackets beat McKinney 75 to 37 (someone said I didn't enjoy the game after Denison got so far ahead.  My response was I enjoyed every minute of it and always do when my team is winning--can't get too lopsided for me.

 

Saturday we had a good time at the breakfast at the "new" to us, Denison High School.  Then more mixer in the afternoon.  The finale was the greatest we have had. Marvin Vincent and a professional video person put together a CD with all the pictures we had collected from our class members and had music to go with it--along with comments from Marvin about each person. In addition a very solemn presentation was made honoring all our deceased class members (about 64) that brought tears to our eyes.

 

The food was very good and Joann, along with several class member, decorated the meeting hall. Ginger and her daughter did a great job taking the attached pictures.  You can see most of the folks who were there and the decorations in the pictures.

 

My guess would be that around 100 to 125 people came to all or part of the celebration activities--I didn't count so we may get a better number when Joann mails out her report.

 

I think all of us from the class, spouses, and others from other classes had a wonderful time visiting and catching up with what has been going on in each others life since high school.

 

One of my favorite times was the close of activities by singing our DHS Alma Mater song--in fact we stood and sang it twice!

 

If you were unable to make this event, I am sorry because it was worth every effort it took to attend--perhaps the last one we will have--who knows.
