Last night I had the opportunity to shoot some candids of the Valley High School class of 1962 at their 50 year reunion. It was interesting to me to see how these people have aged. Last week I was at my own 40 year reunion and 10 years did not make a huge difference in how we looked and how they look. I loved snapping them as they came in. I had three Valley High band members that I called my living mannequins that stood in each picture. I loved shooting these shots.
The reunion was held at Sunny's in the Valley and they room was decorated beautifully by their decoration committee. Each table had a lovely floral centerpiece, a plate of chocolates, and a sunflower chocolate sucker made by a classmate.
Outside the reunion committee had arranged for a classic car exhibit. It was awesome to see all the cars of my childhood.
It was a fun night even if I was not part of this class. They all seemed to have so much fun. I am glad Emily invited me to take part in this event.
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
