SUPERIOR, Ariz.-TheClass of 1962 celebrated their fiftieth class reunion on Oct. 13 at the Jade Grill in Superior. Twenty-eight members of the class attended and a great time was had by all.
First, there were plenty of hugs as each classmate arrived at the old Superior High School around 2 p.m., to take a class picture on the steps of their alma mater. Cameras were busy taking pictures and each classmate busy pinning on name tags with a photo of themselves in cap and gown picture for the before look.
The one who came the farthest was Marion Pomeroy, who traveled with his wife from Baytown, TX forwhat is now the first class reunion he has attended. Other out of state attendees were David (Pamela) Wing from San Francisco, Jeannie ( Almejo) Yates from Santa Fe, and Raymond Gallegos from Downy, CA.
The class toured the old high school and reminisced about the good old days, including the teachers. The tour continued on to the Bob Jones Museum to reminisce about their hometown and businesses, view the large “Pomeroy Insurance Agency” clock hanging on the wall, and onto a tour of the new high school.
By 4 p.m., all were at the Jade Grill for the social hour and a prime rib dinner at 5 p.m.
Tables were set up on the patio roof of the two-car garage, decorated in black, orange and overhanging lights for the later hours. The dinner was delicious and finished to perfection with an orange cheesecake with black crust for dessert.
Oldies music played as attendees ate and talked. When 7:30 pm came around, former classmates began to say goodbye, expressing their regret at the reunion ending and desire to continue getting together through the coming years, if even just for lunch or dinner.
“We’ll see.” said the committee.
