Class of '66 ~ 50-Year Reunion

 
   
 
       
   
  President's Message  
     
 
As we approach our 50-year high school reunion, memories of the 1960's come flooding back. JFK was assassinated, and LBJ became President. You were listening to Elvis, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, or The Beatles in your GTO or Mustang and going to the see The Graduate at the San Pedro Drive-in for $1.25. You were playing or rooting for the Robert E. Lee Volunteers. On Saturday night, you might have grabbed a burger, fries and soda for 30 cents with a date at Jay's or met up with some friends at The Buggy Whip. 

The average income was $6,900, cost of a new home was $23,000, and a new car was $2,600. The U.S. population was 196 million, and our concerns were primarily dates, sports, studies and music. However, the Vietnam War was also at the forefront of our minds, and we began to see our culture change with war protests, literature, music and fashion.

For the next 50 years we would continue to see a shift in society that was sometimes quite challenging — today we practically live our lives through our smart phones yet are busier than ever. But I know we all come back to what is important to us: God, Family and Friends. 

Circumstances change, but relationships endure over time.  This reunion is a special time to share where our lives have taken us over the past five decades, and I am honored and grateful to be a member of the Robert E. Lee High School Class of 1966.
