I Can't Believe It's Been Forty Years!
Mangham High School circa 1963
Mangham High Class of 1970 to Hold Reunion
Remember graduation? Was it held inside the neo-gothic building in the auditorium with the dark velvet curtains and the Old English "M" lettering? Or was it out in the open air of the football field? Who gave the commencement address? Remember the lyrics to the alma mater? "Where stately oaks and broad magnolias shade inspiring halls. There stands our dear old alma mater...." Wait! That's the LSU alma mater. Who taught agriculture and sponsored the FFA when we were freshmen? Who was the FHA sponsor? Remember the office secretary? Who was our academic advisor? (Hint, he was from Rayville and walked with a cane.)
Reunions are for memories and for catching up on the whereabouts and activities of long lost friends and classmates. Reunions are for reconnecting, forgiving, forgetting, and moving ahead. Have you read John Grisham's book, Bleachers? Let's not wait on another funeral to get together. Leave your "funeral suit" in the closet and join us for good food, good times, inspiring stories and tall tales.
Any graduates of the classes several years either before or after ours are also invited. If you have copies of yearbooks handy, please bring them. We can enjoy the photos and see what we wrote to each other forty years ago. And don't forget to bring photos of your grandchildren.
June 12, 2010 is the day and the Mangham Community Center is the place -- next to where Junior Wisenor's Station used to be located. The fun begins at 10:00 a.m. and continues until everyone goes home. Couples are asked to pay $30 and individuals $15 to help cover expenses. Any profits will go to the campaign fund of our next class member to run FOR something (seems like our class members were always running FROM something!)
