Trona High School Class of 1956 Reunion

George, Barbara, and Phyllis

Trona High School of 1956 - 50th Reunion!

Especially my own Class of 1956! What a wonderful time we had, on 23 September 2006!

George Sherman on the Mike! 

Once again our classmate, George Sherman, brought us together, this time to celebrate our 50th Reunion!  What would we do without George? 

We were gathered at the beautiful home of Don and Pat (Hagar) Paris in West Hills, California, on a gorgeous Southern California evening in a lovely backyard complete with cabanas, a swimming pool, and a view of San Fernando Valley.

The exclamations of "Oh, how wonderful to see you, it been ** (fill in the blank) years since we saw each other," the cameras flashing, the stimulating conversation, the fantastic food, the hospitality and decorations so atmospheric and the nostalgia would bring tears to one׳s eyes. 

George pointed out how fortunate we all were to have experienced growing up in Trona...many of this class having attended from first to twelfth grades and some of us just privileged to attend a few years...and the tales of old days were shared! 

Yes!  No doubt about it!  We are still like extended family.
