Some things never go out of
By Chris Elliott

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.
