Judging by their history, you may have felt that the first reunion committee meeting took place backstage after our graduation ceremony or at the Red and Gray the next day.  But it wasn't until 1963 that Elaine (McGrath) Brothers picked up a phone, called 176 of her friends and said "Why don't we have our own party?"

That party took place on May 18, 1963 at the Oxford Club after the traditional Alumni Association Banquet at LEHS.  Nat Green's band provided the music and the cost was a whole 50 cents per person.  The banquet cost was $5.75  which included a $2.00 donation to their scholarship fund.

Joan Cornwell and Jack Abare were the co-chairs and the various committees were headed by Nancy (Douglas) Cox, Elaine (McGrath) Brothers, Rita (Clark) Muchmore, Mona (Tedesco) Gard and Joan (Conway) Raney.  Additional workers included:  Charlie Donnelly, Dexter Brothers, Mary (Zipper) Hinman, Sybil (Harrison) Green and Mary (Cook) McAvenia.  Other members of the committee but not in the picture include June (Scotty) DeRoin and Delly (Levesque) Starratt.


Some other identifications have come in to the web site.  Top row center is Clark Morrison.  To his left (your other left) is Jim Leonard and Dwight Brothers.  At the end is Priscilla (Colby) Hanson.


Donated by our quiet, retiring, shy classmate Art Caldwell

Miscellaneous Reunion Committee Pictures



    Reunion committee members enjoying the area near Jack Abare's Vermont estate before being chased off by a deranged property owner with a shotgun.


The best medicine:  a good belly laugh.






For several years, Jack Abare ran a summer cruise on the Merrimack for employees and often invited committee members and spouses as well.



Fred Astaire makes some technical corrections in Betty Page's dance routine that she made famous in the Boston Combat Zone many years ago.  Fred actually wore taps in his sneakers but unfortunately slipped off the gangplank while leaving the boat and ended up baptized by a local minister.




Recent Finds:  Cookout time at Jack Abare's home







Christmas at various locations













Renewly-wed Jerry Starion says "when you've got it, flaunt it!"  We always assume he means his wife Shirley.  Several reunion committee members had the pleasure of participating in the renewal of vows with a beautiful ceremony at St. Pius in Lynn and a lot of good food and good company at the Knights of Columbus.


From 1998, our 45th reunion committee







While wife Tootie (Pettigrew) Anderson parties with the girls, husband Bob looks as though he needs a nap after setting up the hall for the 30th reunion.


The King and his Court:  Jack Abare and his girls have their picture taken for a newspaper publicity release about our 50th reunion.
