Barnard School Alumni Bring Life to Downtown Barnard

On a hot Sunday on Memorial Day weekend, many alumni of Barnard High School made the trip to Barnard to reconnect with old friends and find out about others who were not able to make it.

Lunch was prepared and served by the Barnard Lions Club.

Class of 1962 50th Reunion with their first and second grade teacher Arlene (Abrams) Murray and their 5th and 6th grade teacher Helen Wallace.  Left to right:  Judy (Keeler) Prater, Arlene, Sherry (Biggs) Dillon, Carilynn (Pruitt) Gustafson, Helen, and Bob Wallace.

 The gymnasium of the school still stands as a reminder of the school days in Barnard.
 The scoreboard has not kept scores of games in years but is a record of the passing of time.
 The Class of 1948 was the first class to graduate on this stage...the last was the Class of 1966.
Many students were fed out of this kitchen.
