Shortly after we graduated in 1965, the Beatles released the record "HELP!" No doubt many of us felt that we needed help as we entered the next phase of our lives. Four years later, the Beatles released "Get Back" and today that song is more relevant than ever.
"Get Back, Get Back. Get Back to Where You Once Belonged"
We are pleased that so many of us "Got Back" to where you once, and still belonged. Who knows what songs will be popular in October but for us it will be:
"(I've Had) The Time of My Life"
Thank you for joining us as we celebrated the 50 years that have gone by so quickly since we graduated.
Garden City High School, Class of 1965, 50th Reunion October 16-18, 2015
A brief description of the events is outlined below. Mostly though, this weekend was about friends old and new. People with whom we shared a time and place.
Dear Fellow Classmates of the GCHS Class of 1965!
Welcome to the website for our class's 50th Reunion. This is the one no one could imagine happening. We are delighted you are visiting the site, and hope that this site makes it fun and easy to enjoy the memories of our 50th, and to actually participate in the reunion from wherever you live by sending in pictures and messages that can be shared with your fellow classmates.
Our 50th Reunion Weekend began Friday night, October 16, 2015, when you arrived back home. Leo's was packed with '65s.
Saturday, October 17, 2015, begans with a 2 hour GC Historical Tour. Those who came aloing were impressed with the tour and the many things we learned about GC that we never knew.
The Homecoming Parade drew great crowds who cheered us as we walked behind our class banner. I think they were surpised we could still walk that far.
Some of us then went to the high school to see the new library and the music wing that was added. Then on to the football game cheering the Trojans on to victory.
Our evening party began at 7:00 pm at the Garden City Casino. There were many varieties of memorabilia to examine. We took a moment to remember classmates no longer with us. With great difficulty we gathered at one end of the room for a group picture. The dinner was great, the conversation greater and we all agreed to met again for a 55th reunion in 2020.
