REUNION CENTRAL

NEW MEMBER REGISTRATION

TO OUR CREW MEMBERS

 

     We graduates are turning over another page in the book of our lives. This page is filled with many hours of work and study which were rewarded, not only by passing marks, but by a satisfaction in knowing we have obtained some useful knowledge.
     The top of the page begins with our freshman year of high school. As 'freshies" we were quite unaccustomed to our new surroundings, but eager to meet people and do things. We acquainted ourselves with teachers, and formed many friendships among our classmates. We tried to imitate the worldly-wise Senior, but were sadly abused by the sophomores who reminded us ungraciously that we were the "lowliest of the low" as far as class standing was concerned.
     As sophomores, you found us a little taller, and a little less naive. At this point, we were introduced to the regents, the scourge of "pupilkind." We assumed the glazed eye and the lethargic look of our upperclassmen. Now, we were united before a common enemy - a sixty on the Regents.
     In our Junior Year, we were really in the "swing of things." We left the teasing of the bothersome freshies to the immature sophomores. G.O. Dances, skating parties, get-togethers and boyfriends were the main topics of conversation. Regents no longer fazed us as we had come to accept them with all the other things that grown-ups have to contend with.
     Our Senior pins at last! That round, grey and blue piece of tin was the symbol of maturity reached. The days went faster and faster as activities followed in quick succession - Senior Dance, Senior Day, Class Night, the Prom, Regents, and before we could catch our breaths - graduation. This was the end of the page.
     After graduation - What next? What will be on the other side of the page?  Some of us plan to continue our education in colleges and business schools, others of us are going to use our training as typists, clerks, stenographers, bookkeepers in the city's offices.
     In the years to come, we might be interested in knowing what has become of our friends. Perhaps we will meet a few and reminisce about 'the good old days" in Lane. Our "Senior Echoes" will help us recall our days in Lane and the wonderful friends we have known.
