I graduated from T. L. Handy High School in Bay City, Michigan exactly 50 years ago. That means a big reunion in the fall. I'm not sure what to expect. Is there a way to prepare yourself before you go? Is there a right mindset?
Our high school was on the westside of the Saginaw River and was one of two in our town. I flew below the radar for most of those years, except for two years I spent as a photographer for the school newspaper. Because I moved from our town, my ties to classmates were reduced dramatically.
In the invite to the reunion, there was a request to write a personal update about the past 50 years to be used in a 50th memory book. It asks for accomplishments, awards of recognition and hobbies and other stuff.
This is a milestone occasion and I look forward to going with my wife. I'm just not sure what to expect.
