Some things never go out of style
By Chris Elliott


May 12, 2006

Mr. Llanos' comment about not being invited to Kayhi class reunions because he graduated from Revilla brought back class reunion memories for me. I graduated from Kayhi in 1969. Beginning with our 10-year reunion, we used our yearbooks to make a list of everyone in our class from freshman year to senior year. We then brainstormed to think of other kids we grew up with who moved away before starting high school. We sent and continue to send invitations to each and every classmate everytime we have a class reunion. One fellow who never misses our reunion is an eye doctor in Anchorage who left Ketchikan when he was in grade school. Although there were no alternative high schools in my day, I had classmates who didn't actually get diplomas. I would be ashamed to meet them on the street if we neglected to invite them to our class reunions.

Call me old-fashioned, but some things never go out of style----like class.
