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.

70 Year Old Jockey Wins Race

Don't discount us 70-year-olds. We are winners.
Get out of your rocking chair and shake, rattle and roll!

I told my Mama once, when she was in her 80's,
that if she wanted to stay out of a nursing home,
then keep moving - keep walking - keep exercising.
That's what she did up into her 90's.
She was in good health until the end.
At 65 she went skiing with me.
This was about the time she went white water rafting.
At 70 she was square dancing at the World's Fair in New Orleans.
