I know many people who would never consider attending their high school reunions. I, however, was glad to be at mine. I think our class was a uniquely pleasant one. Sure there were some cliques and normal high school problems, but it was never too extreme. Most of my classmates were genuinely cool people.

It was good to be around people who are like me in so many ways that others are not. Many of my classmates "get" how great Montana is, and they know what it is like growing up in a small town - growing up in Frenchtown in particular.

So at the ten year reunion it was nice to see many of them again. It was really neat to see how many now have young families. It's a nice reminder that life is more than a job and a house, and you don't have to do something great to be great.

Not too old. I remember when my former youth pastor went to his ten year reunion a few years ago.

I wentr to mine in 2004. It was interesting to hear all about how peoples lives have changed over the ten year span. I wasnt sure I wanted to go, turns out, a lot of the people I didint hang out with much in highschool or vice versa turned out pretty okay, and we chatted a bit. I just recently fan into a guy here in missoula whom was freshman when I a senior. I didnt care for him at all then, but he's a cool friend now.

Lance, good to read your new blog topic. Its funny I just had this conversation with a friend of mine. Our 10 year reunion was this year as well, but no info or contacts have been made. The small group of people that I keep in touch are going to try to band together for a get together ourselves. Be glad your class officers actually did get a reunion together.

I agree, feeling older.

Timely, I'm heading to my 10 yr reunion this weekend. We only had 35 or so in our class so some of us are still friends and we were all pretty much friends back then. I think growing up in a small town is great for that.
