Where We Come From

We all came from different neighborhoods, different elementary schools feeding into different middle schools but we all ended up together to form a unique graduating class at F.J. Reitz on the cusp of history in the making. We all came together at Reitz, but we all started close to home. Here is where we want to put some photos of those early days. Periodically we will be restructuring this section so that we can stay organized as people submit additional photos. We will add what names we know, but welcome any help


Come on, people, we know those pictures are out there....Let’s see’um!
