Celebrate with Us!
THERE'S A SUMMER PLACE...
On two warm weekends during the summers of 2008 and 2013, a group of former LBHS classmates gathered for a few days of reminiscing and fun to celebrate our 40th and 45th high school reunions. We barely recognized one another, but once a name was recited or an old photo brought forth, a sudden rush of familiarity ran through us. We fondly remembered. It may have helped to see a crooked little smile, the frown of a forehead, or to hear the distinctiveness of a voice, but we did remember. We have a common past and it connects us all. We come from the same hometown, we've walked the same hallways in school, we've played in the same neighborhoods, and we've strolled along the same shoreline, smelling the freshness of the salty air and watching sunrises and sunsets that we now realize passed by way too quickly. Our roots are firmly imbedded in Long Beach and each time we return, those roots pull us in a bit closer, holding a tighter grip than on our last visit. Time stands still and we realize that going home again is an important part of recognizing who we once were, yet how much we've grown. Many of us have moved away and continued on with our lives. But during those memorable reunion weekends that we've shared, we have the most wonderful and unforgettable time of our lives, as though no time has passed at all.
It's almost time to reunite for our Golden Anniversary Reunion. Fifty years ago, we left behind those hallowed hallways and moved on with our lives, passing the torch to younger generations of "Long Beachites" to preserve our beautiful hometown. But whether we've remained at "home" or explored a different path, the sweet memories of a cherished time in our lives and the grains of sand we still find in our shoes have always remained with us as an integral part of who we are and from whence we came. Please join us! SG

This page is dedicated to those special members of our Long Beach family who have left us, but who will remain in our hearts forever. Let us never forget those classmates who shared our fondest memories of youth, whose hopes and dreams were as ours, and whose lives and legacies will live on in spirit with us. May our memories of them continue to remind us of who we once were, who we dreamed we would become, and who, due to their presence in our lives, we grew to be.
