Class Memories From 1974

The Ten Pin Pizza at the bowling alley. Daug and Suds on the corner near the Cherry Hut. Bill Patterson's folks owned the Dairy King,(the put-put was not too difficult) Another place that was and still is a cool spot is the Cherry Bowl Drive Inn
Cool Hangouts Posted: 02/21/2012
remember having dances in the cafateria on Friday nights spinning record. Remembering now, how much work it was. If only we had multiple CD players back then, some of those unlucky folks would have had a chance to actually dance at the dance

I remember in the library seeing someone streak naked in the woods outside the window. Remember, this was when the song the Streak was hot on the radio.
Funny Stories Posted: 02/21/2012
we had a assembly in the auditorium and we had a girl and guy (can't remember who they were) do a lip sing to a song and they did really good. I even thought that they were actually singing.

When I was a senior, I had a co-op job with the Benzie Record Eagle, (local paper in Beulah), the Sail Inn restaurant was in the village of Beulah at that time. I used to go there and have lunch. I remember Debbie Ross work there. Also I remember that had a sporting store there where we could buy our varsity jackets.

Bill Deemer and I went dear hunting opening day 1973 in his back yard. We didn't have any snow at the time. We decided to camp out in a tent. It thundered and ligtning alot that night, and boy did it rain. The tent was not water proof but rather water repellant. Anyone who know anything knows that if you brush up against a fabric that is water repellant, the water quickly transfers to you. Anyway, we were soaked. We got up at about 4:30-5:30 and we are wet and freezing, We couldn't start a fire because everything is wet. We ended up hunting that morning and Bill get his deer. I just got cold.

I remember Mark Brian standing at the front of a class room before the teacher arrived and did a stint where he wrapped his arms aroung himself and made it look like he was getting lucky(making out)
Pranks Posted: 02/21/2012
I remember when we moved up here from Detroit. The first day I walked in the door (now the east door) and saw the huge Huskey mascot on the wall. Well, the high school that I left in Detroit had a Mascot of a Huskey for their school too. I knew then, I was in the right place.
Sporting Events Posted: 02/21/2012
have very fond memories of Mr Lynch in Chemistry class making comments about how 'Bald is Beautiful' and how much he liked Elvis Presley.

Our 40th re-union was a awesome event. The weather couldn't have been better. We were nested at the beautiful Crystal Lake Golf Course over looking the vastness of Crystal Lake in Benzie County. We had a lot of prizes to pass out. We had a 50/50 drawing with the winner taking home over $90. The catering was filling. We had 3 types of meats with saladea and fruits to go aroung. We had 3 former teachers in atttendance. In all, we had nearly 60-80 people show up. We also had a table set up for the 10 classmates and 12 teachers that have passed away. There were in attendance because of the memories of them that we brought to the reunion. It was surely an event to remember. Thanks class of 74 for being the best class from Benzie High School
