How's this for a blast from the past?? I have this picture hanging on the bulletin board in my office, it makes me smile when I see it, get a load of those hair-do's (both sexes, thank you very much!) We thought we were in tall cotton, had been to dinner at DeVanti's, had survived Grand March (a tradition I wish our local high school observed) and were on to other things that probably don't bear discussing here.
The most important thing about this picture is this, all those young couples that you see smiling at you actually went on to marry one another within a couple of years, and here is the even better part. They are all still together and are still very, very, very good friends. Two important people are missing from the picture, Frankie was with She Who Shall Not Be Named and Debbi was not part of our group - but now we can't imagine them not with us. They fit. Just. Right.
That's been many moons ago, lots of water under the bridge, seasons passed, LOTS of good times enjoyed by all. Hard times - you bet. Some of them brought us to our knees. But we are still here. For better, for worse. Still smiling most days. Laughing alot. Trying not to cry some days. But here we are CCHS Class of '80 - friends Always and Forever.
