Flashback ~ Lindenhurst High School Reunion

Friday Photo Flashback
It's Friday Photo Flashback when I link up with Alicia of More Than Words.

Today I'm going back to 1991 and it was my 20 year high school reunion.  Yes, you read that right.  I graduated from Lindenhurst High School in 1971 before many of you were even born. :)

The day before the reunion I got together with several of my girlfriends for lunch at Maryjane's house. 
We had so much to catch up on. 
From left to right: Maryjane Mazzapelle, Lois Copozzi, JoAnn Hoza, me and Donna Lorelli.
Yes, there were so many Italians in my school. After all, it was Long Island.

This photo was taken at the evening reunion event. 
Maryjane is with her high school boyfriend and yes, he's been her hubby for more than 30 years.  They are now grandparents.
Lynn Jaeger is next to Lois and I'm on the end.
They were getting us ready for the group photo.  I think I was trying to tell my husband Greg to take a picture too.  All I can say is that after that night, I could barely talk.  But it was worth it since I had such a good time.
Next year is going to be our 40th reunion!
Let me assure you; time goes by soooo fast ...

  13. Debbie your blog is wonderful! Thank you for your sweet visit and for following along as well. I really appreciate it and look forward to getting to know your better.

    Thank you for your kind words on my weight loss and new healthy life. I am feeling very blessed and grateful these days to be healthy again. Yay! For me it started to change around the age of 40. I'm almost 45 now. What was I thinking? Whew! What a wake up call I had about 8 months ago.

    Have a blessed weekend. I'll see you again soon. ~Melissa :)

  14. How fun! My ten year is next year and I am looking forward to seeing everyone again!

  15. Oh, that is terrific. I graduated 10 years after you...1981. I've never been to any reunions, but our 30th is next year. How great that you had so much fun and so many people to reconnect with. Time does fly.

  16. How fun! Great photos with your high school friends! It is fun to see all of you at different times through the pictures. You looked beautiful in them all :o)

    I have yet to get the opportunity to go to one of my high school reunions! I graduated in 1981 from Alamogordo Sr. High School, in New Mexico.
    Blessings & Aloha!
    (thank you for stopping by! It was awesome to get to see our kids for 4 weekends in a row! You would have thought that we only lived a couple hours away and not the 12 hr drive that it took one way! :o0 I cant wait til we get the chance to move closer to them.

  17. You look stunning!!!!!!!!!!!! And you aren't that old. I was 3 when you graduated! :)


  18. You have such beautiful past photos and memories to share. Love you.

  19. I think you are very brave! I never want to go to a high school reunion let alone see anyone on the street from my high school days. (I think I just don't like how everyone 'competes' with how much a better life they have.) Though I did go to a 'ghetto' school before they brought in metal detectors...lol.


I love to read your comments! I know you have something to share so join in the conversation. And thank you for taking the time.
