Welcome to the WCHS Reunion pages for the

                  Class of 1969. 

 

 

Our Fiftieth Golden Reunion is now history, and what a weekend it was!  We had a chance to tour North High School where Mark Percy, Planetorium Director, gave us a demonstration of the video full dome replete with constellations and a launching of Apollo 11, and the Assistant Principal walked us through the building, paying special attention to the time capsule which was recently unearthed, and whose contents are now on display.  We toured South visiting the training room that is now where the pool used to be, went onstage in the aud where Jeanne Charette Guastaferro sang an impromptu rendition of "Wouldn't It Be Loverly?", then we took a turn down the Science Wing.  One hundred thirty-five people attended our gala at the Glen Oak Event Center, all eager to see who had come from near and far.  Thank goodness for name tags with photos and large writing!  The food was fabulous, and the night sped by.  Saturday some of us boarded the Buffalo Double Decker bus for a two-hour tour of the city, something we locals are proud to share, as the waterfront and Canalside have completely transformed the shoreline.  Our narrator was quite funny, and it, too, went too quickly.  
 
Saturday night the banquet room at Sean Patrick's was festooned with balloons in green, gold, blue and white, with a double-helixed arch in those colors, mascot cutouts Spartan and Billy, and in the foyer a photo arbor with 1969 spelled out in gold balloons!  The slideshow featured over 400 pictures from your home photo collections of birthday parties, elementary school classes, reports cards, and much, much more.  We took a moment to view the memorial to those classmates who have left us, and hope we can get both of those up on the website somehow for you to enjoy.  The House Band played a tribute to Alan Belknap, then dove into their first of two sets.  Inbetween, our very own "Ol' Blue Eyes" Mike Mirand sang Sinatra tunes to an exuberant crowd of classmates, some breaking out into an impromptu kick-line to the strains of "New York, New York."  One hundred forty classmates, friends and spouses made the most of the 4 1/4 hours of catching up, discovering and otherwise enjoying a great reunion.  Everything just seemed perfect!  
 
While we could go on about how great the committee was (and they are!), the magic of a reunion doesn't lie in the planning.  It is in the collective collection of those who choose to attend.  Thanks to those of you who made the reunion special for each other, many of whom hadn't attended other reunions. Hope we see all of you at the 60th, and maybe - if you all want it - something inbetween.
 
There are photos posted to the class Facebook page, link below.  We have a few booklets left, and if you're interested, send your check for $15 to Celeste Slawinski Smith and it will be mailed out to you.
