On Friday, August 4, 2017, the Class of 1967 gathered on the new campus of Saint John’s to begin a weekend full of activities celebrating their 50th Class Reunion. Over 35 people attended a cocktail reception in the Great Hall, the first event of the exciting trip down memory lane. The event organizer, Tom Sherald, along with the help of other classmates, put together photos and memorabilia from their time at Saint John’s. Dr. Powell spoke to the alumni about the rich history of Saint John’s while they enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, they gathered for a group photo and were entertained by the current Saint John’s cheerleading squad.
The activities continued on Saturday with a light lunch and a tour of the 2nd Street building that was home to Saint John’s for many years. Of course, the reunion would not have been complete without a trip to Prospect Hall. The alumni were able to walk around the old high school building and take photos together, recalling the good times they had…and perhaps looking for signs of Agnes!
Saturday evening was spent at Holly Hills Country Club where Josie Schaeffer arranged a beautiful dinner for the group. The weekend wrapped up with a Sunday brunch for those who could make it before leaving town to return to home.
It was wonderful to see such a large group of alumni coming together to recall their experiences at Saint John’s and to reconnect with one another. Looking at the smiles and laughter, you would never know that 50 years had elapsed since this group walked the halls of high school together.
While the school location and name have changed over the years, our alumni recognize that Saint John’s is a special place- a historic institution, but it’s the people and the experiences that make it uniquely Saint John’s.
We enjoyed introducing our alumni to our new location and reminding them – WE ARE ALWAYS SAINT JOHN’S!
