All day party in Great Neck
What a day we had! About 40 former classmates gathered at the girl’s gym for our tour of School.
Paul Meyer [our former soccer coach and Gail’s older brother] led us on a tour through the halls of our High School. We started at the Main lobby, viewed the new music rooms and proceeded to the girl’s gym. Then we back tracked to the library. By then some late comers caught up with us.
headed to the lunch rooms and took a short break while Paul explained the
changes in school policy. The school is
on a “lock down”. No more venturing off
campus for lunch and joy rides.
We ended our adventure at the newly expanded Boys Gym. Memories of graduation day filled the room. Some of us went to a county championship baseball game down at the field. Eddie Ford’s son was playing!!
Next on the agenda was our pizza party at Gino’s. New York pizza, what a treat! About 70 joined in on the fun. My daughter Danielle handled getting name tags on everyone and taking some photos.
During the day small groups ventured back to the old neighborhoods and checked out there old houses and elementary schools.
