We were the first four-year graduating class at Coronado and everyone says we were the best! We've all had husbands, wives, kids, jobs...we'll only have one 50th reunion. It will be ONCE IN A LIFETIME!
We were together when when President Kennedy was assassinated, a world-changing event. We shared first dates, first kisses, first heartbreaks, first cars. In our senior year, we shared the first official invasion of Vietnam. We saw the enactment of Medicare. We saw the birth of the Civil Rights Movement. We hung out at Ricky's or the Dash Inn. We snuck into the Roundup Drive-In. We cruised Central or Scottsdale Road. We won the juke-box!!!
So please, pass the word. Get in touch. The website has lots of information and old photos. Feel free to phone me, or send a reply email. If you know other grads, please pass this on! If you cannot make it, please think about donating...we need seed money to get the word out and pay early expenses.
In the meantime, contact me at (772) 834-6167 or visit us on Facebook at our group "Coronado High School Class of '65 - Scottsdale, AZ"
See you in October...
