Reunion Update…

I hate it when I see an old person and realize that we went to high school together.

I’m not sure who said it first, but suspect many of us have thought it–maybe more than once!

Reservations are coming in and, while I haven’t done a thorough analysis, it looks like we’ll have an interesting group again this year! I see a few reservations from folks who graduated in the 70’s and I think the “oldest” so far is from the class of 1942. I also see reservations from a few folks we haven’t seen in quite a while!

Do we have yours?

It looks like we are going to have an opening for a board position this year… it’s actually not a tough job but it is an important one. Board members are occasionally contacted by mail or email during the year when decisions must be made. The board also meets every year prior to the reunion (same day) with the primary task of electing the president and vice president in accordance with our by-laws. The position that will be open this year is a three-year term. While attendance at the board meeting every year is encouraged, it’s not absolutely necessary.

If you are interested in helping the Association by accepting this position, please speak up! You can send an email to Walter Boomsma or let any other officer or board member know. It’s particularly important to let us know that you’re interested if you aren’t going to be at the reunion. We try not to elect people who don’t want a position!

Hope to see many of you in a month!

milk-carton-31473_1280We are in the process of updating our membership records… we are missing lots of information! The years have definitely taken a toll… on each of us, no doubt, but also on our records. (I’ve created a page listing missing ‘mates by class… you may want to check it!)

You can help! If you or someone you know attended Chester Schools, we’d like some basic information. You can provide information for others you know… Don’t assume we know everyone! Bear in mind, graduation isn’t a requirement–we want to include anyone who attended Chester Schools at any time. Also, from 1969, we include Gateway Graduates who lived in Chester at the time!

Our 2018 reunion marks the 50th Reunion of the last class too graduate from Chester High and the 115th Anniversary of C.H.S. We are planning a special celebration and want everyone to have the opportunity to attend!


Around Chester, 2017

A few photos for those who haven’t been to town for a while. I started in Pine Hill Cemetery… Later while taking photos downtown, I instinctively smiled and waved at folks driving by. Most gave me a blank stare. It finally occurred to me that I now know a lot of people in the cemetery but very few living in town! Time waits for no one… (I didn’t have a lot of time so these are just a few of the familiar haunts.)

This was a busy year… I didn’t get enough photos! If anyone has some they are willing to share, please let me know!
