MHS '68 50-year Closeups

After the eats, folks gathered on the patio at Castle Manor for a group photo. The photo below was taken by Spider Draves' daughter. Dan Nicolini had worked at arranging folks and was leading everyone in the MHS fight song; that's the explanation for some of the facial expressions.

Click on that image, and you'll get to a larger size of the same image that you're welcome to save, courtesy of Spider's daughter.
