50th Reunion
Tyrone High School - Class of 1961

Music by the Chinese Bandits

A good time was had by all who attended the 50th Reunion of the TAHS Class of 1961. While it was fun getting together and renewing old ties, there was a note of sadness as the names of the 38 class mates, who are no longer with us, were read and a bell rung in remembrance of them.

Special thanks to the Reunion Committee for creating such a memorable occasion.

Live music was provided by the Chinese Bandits and was made possible by a generous donation by classmate Patty Updike Summers. Their renditions of the many hits from the 1950's and 1960's were as good as the originals. You can view their YouTube Channel if you click the link Below

The Chinese Bandits playing our Alma Mater.
I didn't get all of this, but it was a nice gesture by the band to learn our alma mater.  If you listen closely, you can tell why Miss Woomer always glared at me in Music class!

They told me we were going to Eaton Parke but it turned out to be the Eat 'N Park.
But all good times must come to an end - after breakfast and Bill ordered an Ice cream at 2:30 AM, Gary told him that there was nowhere else to go - the 50th was over.  Long Live the 50th.
Charlie Watters, Patty Weber Watters, Mary Jane Butterbaugh Bickle, and Gary Crowell
