DHS Class of 1949 - Celebrating 80th Birthdays
This afternoon was an open house sponsored by the Delavan High School class of 1949. My Dad was one of the classmates who gathered with others to celebrate their 80th birthdays. Relatives and friends were invited to come and celebrate with them, so John and I went.
It was fun seeing all Dad's and Mom's friends, many who we knew since we were kids. Some of them were my teachers in school, and the classmates often had family gatherings where all the kids would have a great time too. I worked with some of them as well at Citizen's Bank for many years. A few of my own classmates and friends were there to honor their parents too, a fun time catching up with them.
My Mom was also in the Class of 49, but at the rival Elkhorn High School. Here she is with Nancy, who I also worked with at Citizen's Bank for 14 years.
What a fun turn-out from the community as well, honoring them all! Happy 80th to all!!
