ARAPAHOE HIGH SCHOOL WARRIORS
​CLASS OF 1968 
FIFTY YEAR REUNION
​AUGUST 24-26, 2018


The year was 1968. You could buy a new Ford Mustang for about $2000. A gallon of gas was 27.9 cents, a loaf of bread was 30 cents, Big Mac was .49 cents and minimum wage was $1.60 per hour.

We described our music with numbers 45 or 33 1/3, not with letters like CD, I Pod, or MP3.
​Top song of the year was Hey Jude by The Beatles.

"If nominated I will not run; if elected I will not serve" was originally said by William Tecumseh Sherman in 1884, not president Lyndon Johnson in 1968.
 

We learned about Cells in Biology Class. They weren't something you placed calls on, or transmitted LOLs and OMGs.

We had entered High School as shy and timid Sophomores and we were preparing to leave as confident Seniors ready to change the world with our great work and deeds.

Let’s take time to share the memories with our lifetime friends or renewed acquaintances.

Just because you shouldn't live in the past doesn't mean it's not a nice place to visit and share some great memories!
