Memories and Reminiscences




50 years ago, one half century ago, can you believe it? 

How things have changed, amazing. Looking back at our Tide graduation photos, its difficult to identify ourselves. We were strong and healthy and beautiful.

Reunions are for bringing together old friends and awakening memories long dormant and probably somewhat faded and blurred. Our great event allows for personal and intimate exchange of memories and ideas, and our website expands that opportunity to a multitude of classmates for eons of time. So let's rendezvous online.

Editorial policies:


Well at this moment there are none and may never be any.

Mike, Barry, Lynn, me and anybody else who wants to put their $.02 in are the editorial review group. We might correct spelling and grammar errors and argue over vulgarities and political correctness. But since we are all adults and this is a free country, we are not likely to censor anyone?
