Oh my goodness, where do I start??? On July 30, 2011, my class, the Warren County High School, Class of 1981 had our 30th class reunion. I've put together all the photos taken this night on this blog. Wow what a great night. In school, and growing up, I didn't realize how important school really was, and really, just wanting to just get through it. It didn't appear to go by to fast back then, but looking back now, boy it did!! I hear a lot of people say they don't care about seeing old friends or people they went to school with -- I can truly tell you, if you are invited to your reunion you should definitely go. You will be happy to see people you went to school with for 12 years!!

In 1981, I remember watching the end of our class slideshow and it made me teary-eyed, but I didn't realize really what was happening -- to busy thinking about getting out of that place ... LOL. I redid the slideshow for the 30th, and I shared at the reunion, it didn't start quite right though, (lol), urghhhh, we missed the BEGINNING!! Let me tell ya, any classmates and/or others reading this blog, I suggest you buy one so you can watch it from beginning to end. LOL (Details soon).

Before I redid the slideshow, it consisted of approximately 463 photos, and 43 sound clips -- and before I added to the show, at the beginning and the end, the show was approximately 33-35 minutes long. I added about 4-5 minutes. It is quite long.

Oh my goodness, The Class of 1981, made this night a very special night! But, I really do want to thank my friends Karol Derflinger and Tommy Campbell for putting up with me and the stress towards the end. You have to admit, we had fun! ***laughing*** You guys are great!! I also want to thank my sister, Renee Athey and my cousin, Emma Sacchetti for helping us with the door and the decorating. Also, thank you to Dana Knave, Full Plate Catering for an awesome job on the food!! And last but not least, Patrick & Eric for a great night of music!! Oh and how could we forget Debbie (at the country club) for putting up with us! LOL

Thanks for coming out and sharing this special night. I hope you had as much fun as I did! :)

PS - If I missed your photo, I'm sorry. I ran around that place and didn't see James Israel or Scott Maddox?

Photo comment By scott c. maddox: I guess Ive always been the guy on the other side of the camera. You got me in some photos. I was that way back in school too. Sometimes in life not bein seen in the big picture you get to see the real pictures of the day. It was a good one from where I saw it. I had a good time even if I wasn't captured in time.
