Y is for Yearbook

     Since graduation is fast approaching for many students, I thought it fitting for my Y memory to be about my high school yearbook.  You remember those books that we couldn't wait to get so everyone in school could sign it and write those cute little notes that meant so much at the time.  Such are the memories of youth.

   
     This is Milltown School where I graduated.  The building is no longer there but the memories will remain forever.   There were 26 students in my graduating class and less than 400 from 1st grade through 12th.  This was before city schools were consolidated into 1 county school.  Our ball teams were called the Milltown Millers and our yearbook was the Mill Wheel.


     This was our yearbook committee.  I'm the one sitting at the table with the bow in my hair.    What was I thinking?








      And remember those senior pictures that you keep around just for laughs?    Talk about big hair!  Well, at least I didn't have a bow in it!







     So, that's my trip down memory lane through the old yearbook.  Have you looked at yours lately?


Until next time...that's my view.

  1. Every few years we bring out all the yearbooks and laugh. And I remember those senior pictures, with the drape across the front of you. Nothing like the glamour shots the kids get today! I love looking throught the books at what people wrote "never forget you and what we mean to each other!" and I have no idea who the person is.....

    2. Beth, it's fun to pull them out once in awhile. As long as you don't leave them out where they can be seen! LOL!

  3. The funniest thing is really, the hair styles looking back, no matter when you graduated.

    1. Sandra you are so right. I was looking through a bunch of old pictures the other day and I nearly cracked up at all of the hair styles I've had! :D

    1. Thank you Kathy! It was the first thing that came to my mind. Must be because I have an older mind than you do! :D

  6. We don't have yearbooks here in the UK, which is a shame, as I think it's a great idea.

  7. As a matter of fact, thanks to Bob Young, a fellow student, I was reminiscing through mine just last week. You saw the 7th grade cheerleader shot! lmbo...well, that led to my pulling mine out and laughing at myself and all my friends. The hair, the clothes and the black and white pics throughout. 1967 was my graduation year and I really do love trying to remember people and things from those days.
    You were just as cute then as you are now...haven't really changed a lot, if you ask me.♥

  10. I wish I could look at mine but I lost it and several other books in a move several years ago. They just vanished!

    1. That's a shame Jeremy! Sentimental things like yearbooks would be the hardest thing for me to lose, just like photos. Thanks for stopping by!
