We are so happy to announce the        
marriage this past summer of our         
adopted 1961 Class friends:

       Robert Finley
   Diann McCormick

The wedding was officiated by the wife of
Chris Finley, the son of Beth Barnes
Finley ('61), Robert's former wife who
passed away some time back.

Robert said that with the exception of a
Houston temperature of 106 and air
conditioning that went out, it was a perfect
wedding! He said that's why they appear a
bit wilted. The the joy and happiness was
so enormous, no one noticed. BTW,
Robert and Diann have known each other
since the second grade.

Lost Memories

Getting older with dusty and
fading memories, I realize that
there are some things about high
school that I can't remember!
Maybe the same thing has
happened to you and you just
need a few details to bring them
back to life.

Here's my
Lost Memory and I
hope some one can help me!
It's about the
Senior Prom. I went  
Mike Kelly ('61) -- we were
going steady.

Our Prom was at Sylvan Beach,
right? And there was an orchestra
with the name of ____? I
remember many details such as
my green and white polka dot silk
tulle dress from Sakowitz, my
dyed to match shoes from Bakers
in Meyerland and the orchid
corsage Mike gave me. I must
have floated to the Prom in that
ether of young love as that's about
the extent of detail I remember!

It seems like it was evening when
we left the house. But I also
remember some kind of picnic
and this obviously doesn't jive with
an evening dance!!! So maybe
the picnic was the previous day?

Does anyone remember who
Mike and I double date with or did
we go by ourselves?!!!.

After the prom was over, I do
remember several of us driving to  
Galveston for the rest of the night.  
Who did we go with? Was it
Wiper and Dave Stiles
or did
Marty and her date meet us down
there or did she even go with us? I
know one of you holds the key to
memory of that evening, so please
help my brain!
My email is: Thanks, Gail

What do you remember about the
Senior Prom? Or another event?
Would you like a brain-helper
too?!! If so,  email me and I'll post
your memory search!  Gail
