Keeping in touch with your high school friends after graduation is difficult. Keeping in touch with your high school friends for over seven decades is nearly impossible.
However, this month, over a dozen former students of Patterson Park High School reunited and celebrated their 70th high school reunion.
“We’ve been doing this for years and years,” said Anna Pitt, who helped organize the reunion.
Every year, the sassy seniors meet up for lunch. At 88 years old, the alum travel from all across the state for this tradition.
Pitt has kept in touch with her former classmates through postcards.
“I give them a pre-made postcard and they give me their names and addresses, so then all I have to do is put down the date,” she said. Pitt added that they always keep her updated on their lives.
“Some of these girls here, we started in first grade together. Some of us have been together for so long,” she said.
