Middletown High 50th Reunion

by in 2017 Trips

We planned a two week vacation around when my 50th High School Reunion which was scheduled September 8-10, 2017. It was a great chance to spend some time with my Mom and of course we brought the tandem for a week of cycling on Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard.

Mom is 91 now and has lost a great deal of her vision, hearing, mental acuity and mobility. Nonetheless, she keeps a positive attitude. The apple of her eye is 2-year old Zoey. She really lit up when she finally got to meet Zoey’s new sister, her GREAT grand-daughter Isla, for the first time while we were visiting.

Below are just a few shots of our reunion which had events all weekend. Friday night Stephan Huttler and his wife hosted a cocktail party in their lovely new home. Saturday evening there was a dinner at the Atlantic Resort with dancing and trivia. Sunday we met at the school for a memorial honoring classmates no longer with us. Classmate Bob Cowsill played guitar and sang several songs. Instead of releasing balloons each person’s name was inscribed on a shell that later was returned to the beach. Then out to John & Lisa’s for a BBQ, visiting and croquet.

    Wow! The Mom of Zoey and Isla looks so much like Sheila she must be Ric’s daughter. And great grandma looks wonderful @91.
    Was fascinating to look at the reunion photos; too many shells in the basket!
