52nd Class Reunion

Note: To see other class reunions, click on the "Past Class Reunions" page at the left, then click on the reunion of interest.

Our 52nd class reunion was held from Oct. 7-9, 2022. The coronavirus pandemic forced us to postpone our 50th class reunion twice, but finally we were able to have it. Since it was two years late, we called it our 52nd class reunion.
 
The reunion began with an informal social at the Pizza Shoppe on Shaker Rd. from 4-6 p.m. on Friday afternoon.
 
On Saturday morning, from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. we had a tour of the high school led by the ELHS Class of 2023 president, John Fitzpatrick, the nephew of classmate Andrea Hastings Driscoll.
 
On Saturday evening, from 6-11 p.m. we had a banquet at the Twin Hills Country Club, Longmeadow. 
 
On Sunday morning, we concluded with a farewell breakfast at Panera Bread bakery-cafe on N. Main St. from 9 a.m.-12 p.m.

Bob Ireland serves as the official as Ginger Simone, Scott Moore, Bruce Moore, and Steve St. Marie prepare to run the 100 yard dash. The track is an expensive rubberized surface and the field is made of synthetic turf versus natural grass during our time. Football, soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey are played on the field.
 
 
Steve, who was on the track team during his freshman and sophomore year, won the race handily, with Scott in second.
