Carol, I am attaching a picture that I took of the members of the Class of
1961 that went
on the trip to NNHS on Saturday. They are sitting on the bleachers. Unfortunately, I cropped
around the people and therefore the size will no longer conform to a standard 4 x 6 printing.

night we went to Buddy and Libby's (Blechman David - both '61) home. It wasn't too
long after we arrived
wonderful news!!! Of course, I have my own selfish reasons
for hoping that I'll be able to attend
so enjoyed the Magical Mystery Tour that we took last fall. What a
fabulous time we had! I'm glad y'all had that
To illustrate the drastic
changes in the use of this building, I made a Navy Exchange purchase while

|Peering from Julie Conn's Office||10:42 AM - Julie Conn's Office||10:43 AM - Old Court|
I am almost certain that someone sent you a photo of the window that Athletic Director Julius Conn used to observe the TYPHOON basketball games at home. But, just in case, here is another of that well known spot.
I could almost hear "Julie" shouting with glee, "We are going to tourneyville, we are going to tourneyville!!!"
|This is the corner where the TYPHOON Bench was located for many years. I can still recall TYPHOON fans attending the JV and Varsity Basketball games sitting on the floor above the bench when the stands were full. They hung their feet and legs over the edge and used the lower bar for protection while the screamed and yelled for the TYPHOON.|
|10:51 AM - Band and Chorus Hall: FOREGROUND: Jack Harrison ('61) of VA; and _____ _____||11:02 AM - Becky Smith Woods ('61); Eva Ellis Madagan ('61) of FL; and Fred Sage ('61)||11:04 AM - From Second Floor at old NNHS|
|This should bring back a few memories for some older TYPHOON. The band room was on the left and the chorus room on the right in this hallway.||The steps seem much smaller now.||While taking the tour of the old NNHS I was reminded of a site we all used to see but probably took for granted back in our youth. This old tree has survived many a year.|
|11:08 AM - Library Hall||11:13 AM - Old NNHS||11:35 AM - Class of 1961 Tour Group|
|Here is a view from the corridor by the library, which was over the Home Economics classes. The enticing smell of food cooking is long gone.||This view brought back memories for me, and I wanted to share it with those who might also recall the view from the second floor of NNHS.||The group of Class of 1961 that attended the tour of the school building gathered for this moment in Saunders Stadium for a photo opportunity. You have already posted this photo, and this is from a different angle.|
