57th Reunion Wrap-up

We've just wrapped up another fantastic reunion, and it's always a joy to reconnect with friends from both near and far. To those who couldn't make it this time, I encourage you to mark your calendars for our 60th reunion (in 2026!). It's a bit surreal to think that we've been out of Monroe High School for six decades! While the 60th certainly won't be our last gathering, the passing years underscore the importance of not waiting too long to reunite with old friends. Time is precious, and we never know when those opportunities might slip away.

At our recent reunion, we kept things casual and laid-back. 

  • Friday featured no formal events, but various groups got together as folks arrived in town. 
  • Saturday, we ventured back to Monroe High School, and it's safe to say that the changes over the years have transformed it into something almost unrecognizable from our school days.
    Saturday night saw us gathering at the Elmwood Inn on Mt. Hope for an informal get-together. While some enjoyed dinner there beforehand, most of us relished the chance to simply sit, reminisce, and rekindle connections. It was an enjoyable evening, though the only drawback was the rather loud acoustics (the sole complaint I heard about the entire weekend).
  • Sunday we got together at Buckland Park in Brighton, where we enjoyed a picnic at the lodge, accompanied by the nostalgic tunes of the 60s. A food truck kept us fueled, and the atmosphere allowed for more intimate conversations in smaller groups.

As we look forward to our next milestone reunion, I urge you to keep an eye out for the upcoming questionnaire. One of the questions will be, "What can we do to remember or past while creating new memories?" I encourage you to take a moment, reflect, and offer meaningful suggestions when the time comes. We aspire to see even more of our friends attend, and your input is invaluable in shaping an event that resonates with everyone.

Warm regards, and here's to more cherished reunions in the future!

GREAT TRUTHS THAT LITTLE CHILDREN HAVE LEARNED:

1) No matter how hard you try, you can't baptize cats.
2) When your Mom is mad at your Dad, don't let her brush your hair.
3) If your sister hits you, don't hit her back. They always catch the
second person.
4) You can't trust dogs to watch your food.
5) The best place to be when you're sad is Grandma's lap.

GREAT TRUTHS THAT ADULTS HAVE LEARNED:

1) Raising teenagers is like nailing jello to a tree.
2) Wrinkles don't hurt.
3) Families are like fudge... mostly sweet, with a few nuts
4) Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground.
5) Laughing is good exercise. It's like jogging on the inside.
6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fiber, not the toy.

GREAT TRUTHS ABOUT GROWING OLD:

1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
2) Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you're
down there.
4) You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking
chair that you once got from a roller coaster.
5) It's frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers
to ask you the questions.
6) Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.
7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.

THE FOUR STAGES OF LIFE:

1) You believe in Santa Claus.
2) You don't believe in Santa Claus.
3) You are Santa Claus.
4) You look like Santa Claus.

Thanks!! For All Your Help!

The 50th reunion of the MHS Class of 1966 was an unqualified success! the Reunion Committee worked very hard to ensure that our 50th was a reunion to be remembered. During the planning the committee decided to try to keep the events as affordable as possible. The challenge was balancing affordability with value.
