Our group reunion picture finally got in the Observer-Reporter today.
The reunion was great! The best one ever!
Also I've included some pictures I took during the evening and the brunch.
Do you have any idea where we might find a copy of our year book? One or two classmates lost theirs.

And the winner is ...Shawn Wall
Readers submitted 322 photos for the Post-Gazette's online Best Vacation Photo Contest that kicked off in September. The photo above of sunrise off Hilton Head Island, S.C., was taken by Shawn Wall, a software engineer who lives in Wilkins.
Mr. Wall, 29, was visiting Hilton Head this past summer with his girlfriend and her family when he shot this photo.
"I snuck out of the house around 6 a.m. and waited for the sun to rise while taking in the peaceful scenery and listening to the crash of the waves," he says.
Readers viewing photos submitted to the contest were able to rank each one from 1 to 10, so those with the highest averages rose to the top. You can view the full gallery of photos submitted by readers.

Jim, thanks for sharing. and how cosmopolitan and sophisticated of them to start the dance at 9:00pm. But what do you expect, they were of the CHS Class of 1959.

Subject: Photo of Canonsburg
Here is the photo I was talking about. I am sorry it is not in the best of shape but like I said on the phone, I picked it up from the dump.
Where exactly the location of the photo is, I am not sure.. My guess it is on the same side as the Crystal Restaurant. The Van Eman sign is evident as well a meat market. You can see bunting displayed on the buildings, so it could have been the 4th of July or a Presidential or Candidate visit. We might be able to determine the year by the ladies dresses. My guess would be is the early 1900's -1930's. I would have to do some research on that but perhaps some of our bloggers have an idea.
Thank you Lou for the rescue, and please keep those picture treasures a coming!
