Urgent call for Class of '66 photos for the July 1&2 reunion!

BEMUS POINT & MAYVILLE, New York - If you have any historical photos from our high school years - maybe of plays, sports, parties, dances, or whatever - please bring them along to the class reunion.

Randy Carlson will be setting up bulletin boards where they can be posted on display.

You will get them returned. The display will be just for the reunion.

Personally, I wish I had been shooting photos a lot in those days, especially of our off-campus activities. Then again, maybe it's just as good we don't have any photographic evidence lurking.

Below are few shots from our SWCS Yearbook of stage plays our classmates were involved in. I suspect many classmates who were in the casts - or working behind the scenes - have less formal shots that would be fun to see.

Bring your photos to the reunion, please!

Final countdown underway for SWCS Class of '66 50th reunion

BEMUS POINT, New York - The final countdown has begun.

Just 9 days from now (as of this writing, anyway) a quorum of members of the 1966 graduating class of Southwestern Central High School will gather in Bemus Point for the first night of a two-night celebration.


Yes. That's my plan anyway.

There's golf, dancing, yakking, and possibly some imbibing of beverages. Possibly.

Friday night the assembly - more fun than any assembly we probably ever had in high school - will be at the site of the old Surf Club, now the Ellicottville Brewing Company. That soiree starts at about 5:30 p.m. and runs until we run out of steam.

Try to make it to 7 p.m., please!

Saturday night is at the Chautauqua Suites in Mayville. There will be cocktails before dinner, cocktails with dinner, and cocktails after dinner while the dancing goes on. 

Rereading that last sentence suggests that I should grab a glass of wine to finish this post.

If you have any last-minute questions, concerns, ideas or anything else, give Randy Carlson a shout via email by clicking on his name.

And below is the balance of the photos of classmates who said they will be attending.

Hope to see y'all in Bemus and Mayville.
