In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

Double click on the picture to enlarge.

We presented the operetta "The Inn of the Golden Cheese," and made our parents proud. This operetta was presented around the country by schools during the 1950's; it took place in the 1700's, and has pilgrims and Indians in it. Peggy Edwards, who sent me this picture, remembers the names of almost all in the photo (let us know if you remember the others), and also the words to many of the songs; she was in the chorus. Great memory, Peggy! I was the announcer because they said I had the loudest voice - LOL.

Opening Song

At the Inn of the Golden Cheese
We're in charge to do as we please
And we please to make it spic and span
We'll polish every pot and pan
We'll chase the dust until
It makes us sneeze (ah-choo?)

At the Inn of the Golden Cheese
There's no time to take our ease
For we expect a famous guest (William Penn)
Who'll say our service is the best
He's ever had - at the Golden Cheese.
