I also remember the gym teacher getting an XKE instead of an engagement ring. At that time all the girls thought that she had made an amazing choice. What a smart women. We all decided when we got engaged we would take a car instead. 🙂 I can still picture her in the gym….. Short navy blue v-neck tunic and white blouse with a whistle on a lanyard around her neck. The girls wore white TEDDY blouses that buttoned and funny navy bloomers which never looked good. Later we wore reddish gym outfits which buttoned down the front and still we complained about the look. Anyways, we all survived and most of us probably took the traditional diamond instead. I still love my ring…… Beverley

Details about Registration, Accommodations, and Program are available at the MCHS 2015 website at mchs2015.com


Other MCHS teachers

If you know of other MCHS teachers or other staff who may be interested in attending, but who may not know about the Reunion, please do get in touch with them, and please let them know about the event.

In some cases, there are teachers who will not be able to attend due to health reasons. We will be sending greetings and well wishes to them, from the Reunion. We’ll put together a card, that Alumni and Teachers at the Reunion can sign, and we may also find a way for Alumni to send individual messages.

Any suggestions you may have, or any contact details you may have, please send the relevant information to the MCHS ’60s Reunion Database Team. Or send the details to Jaan Pill at jpill@preservedstorie.com and the information will be passed along to Howard Hight in Boston and Diana Redden in Vancouver.

What do I get for $150?
