Croton-Harmon Class of ’78

Posted: August 3, 2008 in Family, Reunion

Even though she’d moved away at the end of her junior year, Shawn still considers Croton-Harmon High School as her school. So when the Class of 1978 got together at the start of August to celebrate its 30th reunion, we knew we had to be there!

Though the festivities reportedly began on Friday night, we joined the fun for a Saturday afternoon family picnic at beautiful Croton Point Park. A caterer brought in way too much food and we all had a great afternoon in the park!!  (Many thanks to the organizers!!)

We arrived in a torrential downpour that threatened to wash away the entire point – but the weather soon cleared and we had great fun, great food, and a great time visiting with Shawn’s classmates! While the boys kicked around a soccer ball and enjoyed the riverside views, Shawn caught up with class happenings.

Later that evening, after abandoning the children at the hotel with a pizza, Shawn and John returned to the Croton Yacht Club for an evening of food and music.

As the band began to play and the sun began to sink, more and more stories came out about the happenings back in old Croton and of the days that followed. Some stories were amusing, some happy, a few sad – but all enjoyable.

Shawn had a great time visiting with her old friends and even some that weren’t friends back in the day but now seem to share a common bond and are fun to party with!
