EHS Class of 1965

On Saturday, Au. 29, beginning at their old gymnasium — the only structure still existing from school days — the Elizabethtown High Class of 1965 mingled on the worn, original court and sat in same chipped-but-sturdy bleachers from their youth. Each could recall how this facility was then a center of constant activity, utilized for basketball, gymnastics, pep rallies, band concerts, Halloween carnivals, science fairs, sock hops, and even a one-time summer community skating rink. The 1965 class was considered the vanguard or first true class of Victory Babies in that almost all were conceived after either VE Day or VJ Day, marking the end of WWII. They felt grateful both for parents surviving the war, and for their own survival of 50 years since graduation.
