It’s been a long time since we left school, and our families to make our way into the world and find the

lives we were looking for…

And learning to accept what life held in store for us...

Page 3: Welcome to the 30th Class Reunion for Corvallis High and ...

Well, it’s now 40 years later and we’re still here. Living, as we will, along the journey of life...

Page 6: Welcome to the 30th Class Reunion for Corvallis High and ...

…way back in time 40+ years when…

High school was a big scary building, and you didn’t know what was going to happen when you first walked in that big door?

You had no idea what lay in store for you

Page 7: Welcome to the 30th Class Reunion for Corvallis High and ...

You didn’t know where to sit at lunch time…

Page 8: Welcome to the 30th Class Reunion for Corvallis High and ...

Or what to eat – Congo bars?

Page 9: Welcome to the 30th Class Reunion for Corvallis High and ...

Bellbottoms and hip-huggers, ponytails and halter tops?

Skipping class when the weather was nice?

Learning to type on electric typewriters?

When Mission Impossible was just a cool TV show?

Volkswagen bugs, student teachers, Slurpees at the 7Eleven?

When you thought all adults were SO old and stupid?

Deep Fried shrimp at Toa Yuen? Kimo’s drive in?

The A&W drive-in? Summer jobs at the cannery?

Track meets, football and baseball games, school plays?

Swimming in the high school pool ?

When the future was yours for the taking?
