The " gig spots " varied from the Moose to the Moon, to the Cooler to Roger ' s Pond. But the place thats probably most re¬ membered is Beaver Pond. There is where some of the best par¬ ties of the spring were held. And, it was at this time, that the controversy over a party area peaked. We shouldn ' t for¬ get our Junior Prom, either. This was a time when we all got were the usual spots for " mun¬ ching out " . Open Pantry was probably the most popular store. We visited " Open Parties " just about every night. After all, it ' s convenient. A group of us (about 30 kids, went to Hyannis in January to support our Junior Miss, Kate Huntington. We stayed for the weekend at the Sheraton Regal Motor Inn. This was probably party in a motel for two days. The Sheraton accomadated us perfectly from the sauna to the excellent rooms. Of course, we supplied the music . . . and the " hoochies and bones " , We par- tied in rooms 132, 215, 540, 433, and 130. By the way, who won the Junior Miss? Graduation is simply a cli¬ max to our four years at FHS. Of course, we can ' t sit down and write about every party but if you think back and remember ALL the good times we ' ve had, you ' ll realize just how great our class is.

The day after marked the usual post¬ prom trips to the Cape. The whole package-deal proved not only to be a good gig, but also very tiring. Our senior year showed that we were not your average senior class. We were definitely unique in that we were not only an in¬ telligent class but we also were a partying class. We may have partied a lot during our first three years at FHS, but we really " got down to it " our sen¬ ior year. In the fall, the parties were usually located at the Rink or at the well-named " Wasted Acres " . It was at the Rink where we realized that the majority of our class were " partyers " . On a good night there, the parking lot would be full with about twenty cars. Many excellent snowball fights were held there. Occa¬ sionally, everyone would be dis¬ persed by the likes of Ernie Gotham and Company but usually we had no hassles. What was a night without the " munchies " ; that sudden craving for food.

FRANKLIN AFTER DARK PLACES AND THINGS WE DO: If someone would ask a psy¬ chologist what the most im¬ portant life stage of early adult¬ hood was, the reply would be the years during high school. This is when a person changes physically and emotionally as one ' s personality traits are de¬ veloped. This is evident by watching the students going through their four years at FHS. There were definite and visible changes in everyone. As freshmen, the class of 76 was a quiet bunch sticking in large groups which had no significant group parties. The boys had lunch with the girls but the boys used to be mad at the girls because they went out with upperclassmen. The big extra-curricular activities was to go to the basketball and foot¬ ball games, go to the movies, go to the dances or Friendly ' s. The dances were the most pop¬ ular gigs, which tells you about the excitement then. Some kids went in wasted, but the majority Remember when: a pack of cigarettes cost 450 a popcicle cost 50 gum was 50 a pack bubblegum was 10 movies cost 750 bowling cost 350 gas was 350 a gallon penny candy cost a penny a stamp cost 30 paperback books cost 450 an ice cream cone was 150 went in straight and even danced. Those who didn ' t go stayed home and did their homework or watched TV. The biggest event of the year had to of been the Initiation Dance. Most of us were so scared and we made sure that we wore all the required at¬ tire. It was a big zoo, every¬ one dodging whip cream and lipstick smearing. As it turned out, it was a blast and not that many kids got hurt, 3 (?) but it was the last ini¬ tiation for FHS.

It was during this year in which we got the reputation of being one of the most exciting classes at FHS in a long while. Mr. Fiske was a major fac¬ tor in this turn about. He and the class officers worked diligently to keep the student body happy. They added a new concept to dances by adding multi-colored lights to the cafeteria and having good sounding bands compared to the others. Mr. Fiske also organized a class trip to Myles Standish State Beach, the first of its kind. There were three bus¬ loads of kids plus some carloads who had alot of fun down there. Some kids were partying while the others were playing around on the beach. There were hot- dogs and hamburgs which many ate raw because they were tired of waiting to cook them. The Aero smith concert had to have been the main event of the year. It was a big name group and the students were making plans for it weeks ahead of time. Although some kids don ' t re¬ member, the concert wasn ' t all it was cracked up to be, as Aerosmith only played for 45 minutes. As sophomores, many peo¬ ple started " to get down to it " , partying that is. Places as the Moon, the Mouse and the Jr. High field became popular con¬ gregational places. Many soph¬ omores came out of a so called shell and became rowdy and very sociable during and out of school. Our partying definitely in¬ creased as we came nearer to graduation. Our junior year was full of activities from partying at Beaver Pond to " indulging " at the Prom. Something most of us earned this year was the right to drive. Now, it was us who contributed towards the congestion of the Star Market parking lot. Along with the acquisition of our licen¬ ses came more partying as we finally had the " wheels " to get around.

PEP CLUB REALLY INVOLVED The Pep Club had a great deal of fun this year. Many sporting events were at¬ tended, and the Pep Club organized what they hope will be an annual Christmas Decoration Contest. The girls really enjoyed cheering on the sports teams, and working on activities that involve the Pep Club, and activities that involve the school. The Pep Club would also like to thank Ms. Carlson for the time and effort she contributed. Many members gave their time and effort to work on various activities and go to sporting events, and they were asked why they wanted to do it. Nancy Bette profits from being in the club because of the participation within the group and with other people, also, getting together and going on trips and having fun. Kathy Keenan feels that, " From being in this club, I had a lot of fun and got to know kids who I really didn’t know too well. " Claire Rondeau thinks that, " The clubs allow you to be exposed to other people in an informal way. " Jean Curran likes the fact that the Pep Club made her go cheer on the Franklin High School teams. " I have really become a more active person in high school sports. Even though I am only watching, I can really get involved and see how hard the team is working for a victory.
