Belmont High school year books are called the Clarion. I have one year book Called the Impersonator from Valdese, NC. I don’t have a collection of year books, I Never did see the need, I never planned to finish, so I was a HS Drop out.
(The impersonator is the white one, yep I have one)
(How handy is that, those are the yr. books over head, and Sherry’s computer down on the left.)
Sherry was fortunate and went through school with the same crew from grade school to graduation. Evelyn, Rose and Sherry graduated in the same class. The year books come out more and more often as the years pass. Evelyn will call Sherry and say, ‘did you hear, so and so died?’ out comes the year books.
These mean a lot to the folks who graduated. Because as the years go by, more and more of the class is missing at reunions. It is now down to where now the drop outs are invited to the reunions. Sorta like, including the Drop-outs will increase the number and folks will feel better.
But unless you were actually in classes with these folks there is not the same camaraderie.
Evidently my class hasn’t lost that many, I haven’t been invited yet. LOL. I mention it, not because I am upset. I didn’t know enough of my class to be remembered anyway. I get my ‘shot’ by attending Sherry’s class reunions.
Yesterday Sherry got some terrible news, Girl class mate Sluggo’s daughter in law died in Haiti. She was down there on a Mission trip to help with the Quake victims. So out comes the Clarion’s.
Shirl works in the Belmont Historical Society. She ran across a picture of me in an old Clarion (I did attend a year and a half before quitting) and had it blown up. I am so cute, hair and all. hahaha Thanks Shirl for reminding me I had hair. LOL
(We called that wave in front a roach, for some reason)
I am sure your year books bring back memories like Sherry’s does. She gets a lot of comfort, fun, and conversations' about the ‘Clarions’.
Thanks for coming this way!
If the shoe fits, get another one just like it.
How about this car?
