Incredible as it might seem, it's been 50 years since the Emansive Class of 1968 graduated and set out into the world!
To celebrate that milestone, we had a great reunion over the weekend of September 14th - 15th, 2018.
The weekend included a golf outing on Friday morning at BanBury Golf Club.
Friday night, we had a casual get-together at the Banbury Golf Club. It was a chance for everyone to wander around the room, looking at nametags and trying to see the young person inside the much more mature faces! Sherry Allen McPeak had assembled a great collection of memoriabilia that was on display and several classmates brought their classic cars to be admired. There was also a memorial table to honor those classmate who are no longer with us.
The plan was to gather people together who went to the various feeder grade schools and take a picture for each school but the only one we managed to take was for Jefferson. It quickly became apparent that people were too busy having fun to be herded out to the parking lot for additional photos.
Saturday morning, 18 intrepid walkers met at the River Point Park in Garden City for a leisurely walk west along the greenbelt and back again. Afterwards, most people found their way to the nearby Idaho Pizza Company for a no-host lunch and more good conversation.
The Saturday night gathering was held at the Riverside Hotel. After checking in, people enjoyed a social hour, followed by the group photo (again, it wasn't easy to get everyone to line up and stay focused so apologies to anyone who ended up not being visible in the photo). The committee (thanks, Donna Stephens Kom and others) had assembled a supply of props and a background so people could take some fun selfies during the social hour.
We eventually found our way into the dining area, where Sherry had set up her memorabilia display as well as the memorial table. We enjoyed a tasty buffet dinner, with a background slide show, which included a presentation of the changing face of Boise, by Mike McCullough, and a compilation of various classmate photos, old and new, put together by Paula Carlson Weir.
At the end of the meal, Georgia emceed a great program, honoring the committee, sponsors and faculty. She also included some fun slides and games. We started with the Borah fight song and ended with the Alma Mater. It was a great way to wrap up a wonderful reunion.
At the end of the evening, for those who still had some energy left, there was music provided by DJ Rhonda and dancing. A good time was had by all!
