I have the opportunity to see my girlfriends that are still in Streator andMiss the ones that live out of state...hope to see everyone at our reunions
Miss Norris Hall for dances....,loved study hall,
It was a simpler time, we enjoyed a lot of things
Especially dances, football games and just hanging out.
We found our way without cell phones, text messaging and emails..
I have been looking at all the old photos from high school we really had the best of times.
Does anyone remember the gym clothes, the dances in the old gym, the pool and swimming lessons, and the Proms????? What fun we had staying out all nite...going to the show to see movies and going on picnics the next day. Love reading everyone's posts from our past...we had such fun during our school days...
