Welcome to the Pen-High Reunion Site

Why this site?
The Committee planning the 50th Anniversary Reunion for the 1968 Grad Class determined that there was no centralized location for publishing reunion information for the many class reunions that were being planned. For multiple reasons a grad may want to attend a reunion of a class to either side of her or his grad year but had no way to determine if, when or where reunions were being held. We hope this site provides that information to all of you.
To see if your class has registered and is planning your reunion click on the "Reunions" link at the top of this page.
The Class Reunion
- Ann Luna
My class reunion's coming,
and I don't know what to do.
My weight and chins have doubled
since the year of '62.
I look into the mirror and--
Good Grief! How can this be?
Gray hair, false teeth, thick glasses--
It's my mother's face I see!
But I head out to the party.
No sense moping, I decide.
I'll just have to grin and bear it.
(But I'm dying, deep inside.)
Then I walk into the banquet hall
And stop. There's some mistake.
Not a single classmate do I find.
Did I confuse the date?
Still the faces seem familiar,
As each one I keenly stare at . . .
Then I realize I'm looking at--Good Grief!
My classmates' parents!
To Old Pen-Hi I pledge fidelity,
For it’s the best school in the valley,
And though I leave her portals far behind,
Her memories will always linger in my mind.
When High school days are all but reveries,
Of Old Pen-Hi I’ll still have memories,
I’ll ere esteem her love as days of old,
The Purple and The Gold
