Yearbook helps bring the memories back at Mass high school 70th reunion

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Here’s a fun article to check out this week from the Taunton Daily Gazette about the recent 70th reunion celebrated by the Bridgewater High School (Mass.) class of 1940.

As the article shows, 13 members of the class got together at a local restaurant to share memories and their senior yearbook came in very handy.

One returning class member was described by the yearbook as a “maestro” on the violin and that he “likes to tease the girls.” Another classmate was described in the yearbook as having a “giggle as contagious as a classroom yawn.”

Have you looked at your old yearbooks lately? How will you be remembered years from now?
