OUR 35TH REUNION WAS HELD ON
NOVEMBER 18th 2006
gathered for a group photograph in the Reception Room of the Mendenhall
Inn. Not all attendees were in the room at the time the photo
was taken, but it’s easy to pick out some of the gymnastic
team in the front row, the athletes with their upright posture
and the hippies who can’t seem to line up no matter what.
Seriously though, one unique thing about our class was that, in
1967, as school districts merged, we became a melting pot of students
from Media, Indian Lane, a number of Catholic Schools and others.
Within a short time though, we evolved into one class. Another
unique aspect was that we lived through one of the most turbulent
and fascinating periods of the 20th century. Like the Roaring
20’s, our era would be hard to describe to a teenager today.
By the same token, it will be equally difficult for us to ever
forget the power and the uncertainty of the ‘Times
That Were a Changin’.
The smoke that was used to simulate dust wafting up from the trap door atop the staircase in "Hello Dolly" was actually made by several stage crew members smoking cigarettes below and blowing the smoke upwards!
an interesting fun fact from back in our era to share? Please
humor us and let us know.
We will post it (within reason of course!)

special thanks to Bill Cannon and John Furniss for all their help
35th Reunion brought together
more than 225 of our classmates, spouses and guests to see old
friends, make new ones and celebrate our Penncrest experiences.
The theme was Imagine, the 1971 John
Lennon song about his vision of how the world could live as one.
In keeping with that theme, this Reunion sought out all members
of the class, convincing many to put aside any reservations they
may have had about attending and to feel good enough to be there.
A powerful screen presentation contrasted the highs and lows of
many of our lives, further emphasizing the fact that none of us
know what is in the future. Then, to bring some of these points
home, Imagine was performed live by
the Reunion Band....How cool was that!
We were honored to have our Class Sponsors: Mr. Henry Vitullo
with his wife Phyllis and Mr. Michael Goldstein with his wife
Theresa join us for the evening. What a treat!
By any account, the Reunion was a success. Hundreds of overwhelmingly
enthusiastic e-mails have expressed just how much
people enjoyed themselves. Even people who did not attend have
written about the good reports they have heard. Of all that happened
though, you, our classmates, were the
“heart and soul” of the
Reunion. It was all of you that made the event successful!
Thank you for making our 35th Reunion one of the best. We found
out on that special evening that we all have a distinctive bond,
one that will always be there through time and circumstance. Imagine
