I graduated from Berea High School in 1970, and this weekend the Class of 70 is holding its 45 year reunion. When Alejandro was planning his trip to Ohio, I asked him if he wanted to come along to the reunion events. He said, "Sure!"
Friday afternoon a small group of us got together at a local restaurant which is located in Berea's former train station. The station was built in 1876 of sandstone from the Berea quarries, and it is a historical landmark.
My friend Gail and I had purchased ahead of time tee-shirts for the opening event of the reunion weekend, and I had also ordered one for Alejandro.
Here is our group in the restaurant. Some of us still live in the vicinity, but others came in from Florida, Washington D.C., and Puerto Rico.
I need not have worried that Alejandro would have a good time. Here he is teaching my former classmate, Heather, how to dance the salsa.
There are more reunion activities on Saturday.
