On September 26, 27, & 28 we had a very fun and enjoyable 55th year reunion. Some of the ladies gathered on Friday for lunch at Southfork Grill and had fun getting reacquainted and shared stories with one another. Friday evening was our informal get together at the Walla Walla Brew Pub on East Main Street. It was very well attended! On Saturday there were various activities – golf, wine tasting, visiting, shopping, etc. Late afternoon many of us went to Dick and Mary Ann Gray’s home for a pre-party function on their deck. It was very gracious of Dick and Mary Ann to open their beautiful home once again to all of us. Saturday evening our barbeque dinner at the Country Club was a huge success. The atmosphere seemed more relaxed this year and everyone appeared to have a great evening. During the program there was discussion and a vote taken to pay from our accumulated account the following:
$449.99 to continue our website for another five years
$500.00 donation from the Wa-Hi Class of 1959 to the Walla Walla Public High Schools Scholarship Fund. The Walla Walla Public High Schools Scholarship Fund was designed to offer College Scholarship assistance to graduates from Walla Walla Public High Schools.
We invite you to go on line at bluemountainfoundation.org and read more information about this fund.
The remainder of the evening we were entertained by a band, The Gems, including classmate Jim Reid, who is a band member guitarist. They played songs from the 50’s and 60’s and a lot of us danced until the band finished around eleven P.M. Our committee heard many praises for how much everyone enjoyed the weekend, and most commented it might have been the best one ever. So, yes, we will plan to gather once again in five years to celebrate our 60th!
Check out the pictures in the photo section of this website. We did not do a group picture this year, but some snapshots were taken. If any of you have more, please post them on this website. It is very easy to do, but if you have any problem, give me a call or email the photos to me and I will be happy to post them for you.
