"Looking Forward to Looking Back Together" was the theme of our 50-Year Reunion.  ​Our hosts gave this toast:

Here’s to the Land of the White Pine Tree.
A beautiful land amidst the Inland Seas
Where the children grow Strong
And the strong grow Great.
Here’s to our home, The Great Lakes State...and here’s to the GHHS Class of 1968!
