JMHS class of ’78 has our reunion plans underway. The reunion will be held Saturday, Sept 27, 2008, at the Capital Club inside the Sheraton Premiere Tysons Corner, and what a night it will be! Think of what we have to remember...
We spent four years growing up together in the halls of Madison – well, and in McDonald’s, and Pizza Hut, too. We put on the Gong Show & Bye, Bye, Birdie, joined countless clubs & played on all sorts of sports teams, not to mention a football team that went undefeated through the regular season during our senior year. We had a blast at the Powder Puff Football Game, Homecoming, & Prom. We did our best not to snore through one more of “MGM” Miller’s movies in Social Studies (were you an AV aide?). By June 10, 1978, we were five hundred twenty-three 17- and 18-year olds, leaving Madison ready to make all our dreams a reality.
Thirty years later, we are people who have met challenges & contributed much to the world. While we have experienced hurts & failures, mostly we have stories to tell of rewarding careers, enriching community service, & for many of us, raising our own terrific children, some of whom are already in, or even graduated from high school. (How can we possibly be old enough to see our CHILDREN going to Proms?) Think of all we have to catch up on...
If you’d like to contribute to the planning of the reunion, or you know where to locate some of our classmates, please use the buttons to the right to contact the committee. Check back at this site often, because as more details are finalized, this is where they’ll be posted. This is also where you can check for classmate profiles to see who’s coming, & get started on catching up with old friends!
See you in September,
Kathy Auten Smith & Your Reunion Committee
