Well, it’s a summer of revived RFH reunions and RFHers are embracing it by reuniting however and whenever they can to play catch up. One class even had a 39th.
As far as getting the word out, though, things have changed quite a bit since those first 10-year reunions for the classes of the 60s, 70s and even 80s and 90s and before. But, there’s one iconic mode of invite that has been missing for quite some time. The painting of the bridge!
There was a time when communication was limited to phone books, landline phones, snail mail and word of mouth. Of course, there were paper invites. But, there was nothing better than getting the word out by just reverting to old school days and painting that bridge.
So, the Retro Pic of the Day honors that tradition and the RFH reunion with a look back, courtesy of RFHer Doug Borden, at the very unique, yet status quo RFH invite to the very first, the 10th, reunion for the Class of ’78 on Aug. 6, 1988 at the Molly Pitcher Inn — like the bridge beacon of a sign says.
The trouble is that when Doug initially asked classmates which reunion this was for, not too many answers popped up on social media right away. Hmmmmm. Senior moments? We’re not talking senior in high school, either.
So, here’s to memories of the bridge and which stinking reunion this was! Hey, that was now more than a few decades ago. Yikes. Don’t do the math. It’s too scary.
In keeping with the spirit of the RFH reunion, tell us which was your favorite and where it was held. Remember?
