  For the Class of 1966,  the halls are empty and everyone has gone.
The coming years will lead our classmates in many different directions; college, jobs, military service, marriage, etc.
There will always be a special bond with those we spent time in the classrooms, in sporting events, in organizations and in life itself.
Our experiences and our education in these halls, will forever mold us for our adventures to come.
