47th reunion

Your GHS Class of 1957 Reunion Planning Committee
is pleased to announce our 47th. Reunion is now a reality!

Make plans now to set aside October 17, 2004 for a very special celebration. Excitement is increasing about getting together. Some of us have not been in touch for 47 years. Others have maintained old friendships. Curiosity about what has happened to members of our class is running high.

All Reunions have a Booklet and we are no different. We want our Commemorative Booklet to be special and we need your help with that. There is no Yearbook Committee to write blurbs, so we need you to write about you, sharing what directions your life took after you left Germantown High. This is not a term paper assignment. Think of it as a letter to a long lost friend recently found. We thank those who have already responded.

The Booklet is a very public way of communicationg with each other. It will provide contact information (pictures, address, phone number, etc.) and allow all of us, including those who are unable to attend, a means of "catching-up" with our classmates. There are two separate topics that we would like you to write about.
Please write in the first person. For example: "After GHS, I..."


MEMORIES OF GHS
We realize that the years at GHS were different for everyone We would appreciate it, if you would write something specifically about the time you spent at GHS. Here are some suggestions that might help:
* Tell how you feel or felt about your time at GHS.
* Are there other students you especially remember or who made a difference for you?
* Are there teachers / staff that you especially remember or made a difference?
* Are there teachers / staff whom you really disliked?
* Are there activities that were especially important to you? (sports, music, societies, etc.)
* What is your happiest / unhappiest memory?
* What images are called up when you think of gym class, lockers, etc.?
LIFE AFTER GHS
There is a great deal of interest in what we have done over the last 47 years. This can be described in several ways:
* A formal desciption with categories - as if you were applying for a job and telling about your education and former jobs - but adding other details of your life like marriage(s), children, grandchildren, hobbies, etc.
* Or, you could be more informal, mention some of the above categories, but focus more on telling who you are and what your life has been like - as though it were a letter to old friends.
We would like your permission to post what you write on the web site. If you do not want what you wrote or your current photo posted, please state clearly. If you don't want your information posted on our Web Site, they will only appear in the booklet. The pieces can be as long or short as you wish. Please note that the committee reserves the right to edit.

PICTURES
If your picture is not in one of the Yearbooks, then we will need a picture from around 1957 as a means of identification at the reunion. We also need a current photo.


MEMORIES OF OUR TEACHERS
For some of us, members of the faculty made a significant impact on our lives. We plan to have a special table set aside for memories of the faculty - and we will include a section in the Booklet. If there is someone you especially want to recognize, please write something.
