In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

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.

Lost in the 50's

Sent to us from Patsy McDonald -


1950's Slideshow

This is a 3 minute video slide show, and worth the time it takes to watch it. If you lived during the 1950s you will recognize the pictures
And not need captions (since there are none). If you didn't live in the 50's, see what you missed. A little nostalgia, some good memories, some not.
