The aim of this reunion was the same as in years past - to reminisce and rehash old times. Although the number of classmates is dimin- ishing, the spirit that was evident 65 years ago flour- ishes under the continuing enthusiastic leadership of the president, Thomas Lodge of New Castle, and secretary, Florence Wingate of Lewes. Duties of treasurer have been assumed by the secretary since the death several years ago of treasurer Weldon Brit- tingham. Each reunion has been scheduled near the date of June 7, when, in 1935, the 39 graduates received their diplomas from the hand of Dr. James Beebe Sr., president of the Board of Education and under the watchful eye of their respected superintendent, Richard A. Shields. This particular class has displayed unusual close- Artist ing its history of a high school from 1879 to 1969. This state of affairs is due in large part of to the effi- ciency and constancy of class secretary Wingate. One item on the agenda for each reunion has been the opportunity for new officers to be elected; the original officers have never been challenged. At the 2000 gathering, master of ceremonies Thomas Lodge noted with pride the 1995 reunion when 16 of the 18 surviving classmates at the time were able to attend. In 1997, Elva NeffWhite of Fort Collins, Colo., was among those attending, although she found it necessary to send regrets this year.

I said goodbye to the captain and those who were still on board. Then I walked off the pier and headed home to Rehoboth. It was a hard week but one filled with excitement and pleasure. I was pleased to know that I could do my part and pull my weight much like the sailors of old in Ernestina. The memories will linge r in this narrative, the sketches I was able to do and the hundreds of pictures recorded by the camera and fixed in my mind.
