The 50th reunion for the Class of 1968 from Rock Island Senior High school is history! What a terrific weekend. So great to be able to re-see friends and acquaintances. Photos from Kathy Welsh Morrow, Rob Goldman and a few other random shots can be found here and the all-class photo here!
As an added “treat” we also have a video clip of the Fight Song!

Oh how I wish we could have seen your attempts at dancing to “our music” and hugged our old friends.
I hope that all classmates will add their favorites [not already listed ] and comments regarding “our”
I just received the 50th Reunion Yearbook from Nancy and realized that I had not included my e-mail for publication. firstname.lastname@example.org
