Party Like It’s….1997?

September 3, 2007
Filed under: Baby Kenton, Blog — emkenton @ 6:34 pm

I’ve just returned from a wonderful trip to Corning for my 10-year high school (incredibly laid-back) reunion.  The weather was amazing–although it felt very much like late fall Saturday night when it got down to something like 45 degrees!–and everybody who returned to town for the event seemed to enjoy themselves.  I came home to dig through some old pics so I could provide a mini-restrospective of some key players in my weekend entertainment!

Here’s one more look at another crew, this time from rival West High.  Swimming was a District team so the two schools bonded together each fall to field (er, pool?) a swim team.  My two best WHS swimming buddies, Carrie and Heather, are posed here with “The Adwoman”, our middle school swim coach.  Minor disclaimer that this pic is circa 1998 and not 1997 but just go with it!

 Since East and West combined forces for this reunion weekend, we were all in town and able to stop by and visit with our fave ex-coach this weekend:

 I have always said that my favorite kind of movie is a Coming-of-Age story (preferably with swelling orchestral music at the same time as a voice-over by the adult version of the main character after a retrospective montage–makes me cry every time!)  While I know it can be disconcerting for many to have the years pass by, I am so excited to be able to chart these milestones in my life and look forward to the next reunion.   But as my fellow organizers (Carrie and Julie) and I said repeatedly this weekend– it’ll be someone else’s turn to plan that one!!
