CORBIN CITY – When I told my daughter I would be attending my 40-year high school reunion she replied, "Ew.”

Well, she is only in her 20s. But I was looking forward to see who would be attending and how everyone has changed. If you ever get an invitation to attend a reunion, call a friend and go. It is so much fun.

While any alumni from Ocean City High School could have come to Ocean City to celebrate Red and White Weekend Sept. 14-16, the class of 1972 held a special celebration of their 40th reunion at L's Restaurant on Saturday night.

The Class of `72 has had several reunions in the past, thanks to the organizational skills of our class president for four years, Patty Bailey. (Sorry, maiden names only for this column.)

This year, with the help of Diane Mazzarella, Joan Wood, JoAnn Unger and others, the class planned a fun evening of music provided by DJ David Allen Pratt, good food and a musical trivia game. Theme music from TV shows of the ’70s was played and you had to provide the name of the TV show. Some that I recalled were MASH, Magnum PI, Sesame Street, Dynasty and Cheers.

Debbie Greene traveled the farthest coming to her first ever reunion from California. Everyone had a great time and is looking forward to their 50th.
