Prince's first grade class at Parmer School. He is the third one from the right of the top row
Saturday 9-12-09 there was a Parmer School reunion. This is the class of 1964 that attended. Prince is in the red stripe shirt.

The official camera lady would take one photo of each decade starting with 1930's. This is the sixties decade.

After the school burned in the early eighties a facade was erected to commemorate the schools existence. There was a tent set up for the more than six hundred classmates that attended to gather to reminisce, eat, drink and dance. The little boy in red came running through and Prince said that was about the age of the children that had gone to the school.
It was a rather warm afternoon and there was lots to drink to quench ones thirst. Barbecue was served for dinner and we left the folks still gathered about dark and walked back to our car rather than ride the bus.
The area where the school was is now a Metro park with a walking track and a playground area.
The kitty justice is that lots of children of the past played on those fields and today children are still enjoying a nice green area to gather.

Lady Di,

I'm so glad you and Prince were able to attend the reunion. I'm sure it was a lot of fun.

Wishing you a great week.

What a neat thing. I went to my grade school reunion a few years ago and it was much more fun than a high school reunion.
And even earlier than that reunion they had an all year-all school reunion and my mother and I want. she was one of the oldest returnees there. so that was fun too.

I am so glad they saved the school land and it is now a park for children of all ages to enjoy forever. MB

It was a nice to go with Prince and see his grade school friends. Peace

Thanks. We did have a good time and Prince told me that was part of the orginal school saved from the fire. Peace

I agree Grade School reunions are much more fun. I think going with your Mom must have been an extra treat. Peace
