ANNOUNCEMENTS

A Message from Our Class President

May 18 and 19, 2018  Sat. night at the  Barn Door, Friday location to be decided. I’m pickin’ up Good Vibrations for the Reunion, suggestions have included a live band or DJ for Groovin’ to the classic sounds of the Sixties . . . to Luby’s Cafeteria with a special LuAnn Brahma Senior’s Platter. Probably going for something in between.

 

Help Me Rhonda with a couple of things. I’ve Heard it Through the Grapevine that a lot of you are coming, but it’s been the Sound of Silence from too many of you. Let the Reunion Committee know I’ll be there and Reach Out to three or four classmates to make sure they’re coming. RSVP as soon as possible to Marilynn.

Music was a part of everything we did in high school, riding around to the Beach Boys, at the Frontier, seeing the Band, Brahmadoras and Lassies march on and off the field, the power sound and electricity of the Pep Rallies, dances in the cafeteria, Blue and White Ball, the Prom. I still remember Rick Oberlies doing a fine James Brown boo-ga-loo down a line dance in the cafeteria, Curley Mays at the Eastwood Country Club . . . 

 

My best memories are founded in the music we grew up with. Can you believe Barry McGuire’s Eve of Destruction was our sophomore year, same year we met Sonny and Cher, I got You Babe, Pretty Woman, My Girl, Yesterday, Satisfaction, Like a Rolling Stone, You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feeling, Downtown, I Can’t Help Myself (sugar pie honey bunch).

 

Help us out here for Saturday night’s trip down memory lane ….. send reflections, perceptions, observations, insights, memories of Mac, music, pep rallies, dances, teachers, the many different groups, send some comments we can share on Saturday night about what was going on with the band, class play, each sports team, tell us about the girl’s swim team champions, Lassies and Brahmadoras, we are wide open for ideas and comments from you we can read, especially looking for perspective from women in the class as speakers or contributors. We now have the perspective of time, looking back at the music and “cultural revolution” of the ‘60’s, sexual revolution, feminism, civil rights and Viet Nam. Rock and Roll from the ‘50’s & ‘60’s has come to mean youthful disruption from the quiet Eisenhower years, the too brief youth of Kennedy’s Camelot as the baby boomers arrived in full force on the scene.

 

One perception could be, Bob Dylan was giving voice to the apprehensions and ideals of our emerging generation. Fifty years later we see ourselves on the other side of his message.

 

"Come mothers and fathers

Throughout the land

And don’t criticize

What you can’t understand

Your sons and your daughters

Are beyond your command

Your old road is rapidly agin’

Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend your hand

For the times they are a-changin’ "

 

We’re looking to have fun, looking to get your input. Send your comments to Bill Celaya billcelaya@att.net or to me, d.ylitalo@ylitalolaw.com

Just to give you some random thoughts:

Should we ask the Brahmadora’s to Show up in their Brahmadora uniforms . . . or maybe bring those hats!

Best/Most Representative song nomination:

Love is Brahma Blue;  Grazing in the Grass with Little General;  Stop in the Name of Brahma Love;  Like a Slowly Rolling Stone;  Help me Get up Rhonda;  Still Picking Up Good Vibrations

Movie life experience: 

The Graduate, To Sir with Love, 007, Bond James Bond, Paul Newman Hombre, Clint Eastwood spaghetti  westerns, To Kill a Mockingbird (the book and movie), 2001 A Space Odyssey, Doctor Zhivago, Bullit, Bonnie and Clyde, The Sound of Music, Night of the Living Dead, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly . . . . . . What we have here is failure to communicate . . . . . . this is an ongoing lifetime process . . . . . . The Code of the West . . . . . . 

Urban Myth or Mac Fact:  

  • classmate caught the Texas record Bass?
  • classmate borrowed an alligator from the SA zoo …
  • other classmate that knows Steven Spielberg (in addition to Bruce McGill)
  • who was sent home from school, his hair was too long?
  • Who rode his horse to the Frontier?                  
  • who is Miss Wiggles?
  • climbed a high mountain (a mountain or metaphorical answer is acceptable)

  • Anybody like Bobby Goldsboro or Herman’s Hermits?
  • Hey Hey, everyone loves the Monkees ….
