'Gosh is was morning alreadyu. A good many seniors were repeating these words
on a bright Ctc usj Friday morning, March 26, in 1948.
Yes, it was either four or five o'clock and we were to be ready to leave Wind-
ham by six, so as to be in the Catskill depot at 7:15 A. H. Of course the
train was late but by eight o'olook we were on our merry way.
Around noon we pulled into the Weehawkan station. From there we walked to the
ferry. A bus picked us up and before we knew it we were on another ferry.
After taking a newer and faster train, we arrived in Washington around s1x
o'clook. We all went to our rooms and freshened up. Then we went out to din-
er and a movie. After we came back to the hotel no one slept because we were
all so excited.
The next morning we heard the telephone and whom should it be but the operator
telling us it was seven o'olook. After a light breakfast we went to the Gap-
ital. Having gone through the building we had our picture taken,w1th the Cap-
ital as a background. It was nearly noon, so we went back to the hotel for
After lunch we went on a tour of the historic places in the city and the zoo
where I am sure everyone enjoyed himself, and then to the Arlington Gementery.
That evening we split up, some of us went shopping, and the rest went swim
ming at the Ambassador Hotel.
Easter Sunday we were up at five getting ready for the sunrise service. After
everyone had had dinner we went on a tour to Mount Vernon and theNational Air
After dinner we headed for the Lincoln Memorial and the Congressional Lib
rary. I oould'nt tell you what everyone did that evening but a good time was
had by all
Monday morning we went to the Federal nureau of Investigation, and the Smith
sonian Institute. After this we went back to the hotel for lunch.
Lunch was over and now for the tour which the girls had anxiously awaited
Our first stop was at the Franciscan Monastery and then Annapolis. W were
at Annapolis for quiet awhile but around 4 30 we started for the hotel.
When we arrived at the hotel we went out to dinner and a movie, as the Amuse
ment Park had not yet opened for the year.
Of course we went to bed early and right to sleep.
Golly, but the time surely went fast. On Tuesday our last day, we headed
for the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Our it nerary called for a lot more
but we only visited the Bureau and the Washington Monument, before it was time
to catch the train and leave for the Catskills.
Even with the nice clean trains, the wonderful hotel service, poor weather,
and plenty of sleep, I'm sure everyone had a wonderful time and met a lo f
new friends and still carried out all the rules of the trip.

ident, llartha lliller--secretary, Beatrice De Long--treasurer and Robert Cross-
-student council representative. Again we participated in the magazine cam--
paign and the scrap paper drive but did not come out on top. Working hard
with Miss Baniak and Miss Florence Linindcll we edited the "Blotter". We had
our troubles but we had to admit it was pretty good. In February we had the
Valent:lne's Dance and Doris Johnson very artistically drew our silhouettes.
We were all very excited on the day our class rings arrived. When class night
came, we paraded as a circus. This year our class had the honor of choosing
a boy to attend 'Boys State", and selected Robert Buist. In lay our class
sponsored the Jlmicr Prom, better known as "Tulip Time". Everyone enJoyed
dancing to the music of Frank Fitch and his orchestra. The gym was trans
formed into a Dutch Garden. The Queen, who was Joan Hauser was crowned
Frances Layman. Everyone enjoyed himself at the Junior Senior picnic held at
Toconic Lake, even though it did rain. Our activities for the year ended
with the Junior girls holding the daisy chain fo: the seniors at graduation.
In the fall of fourty seven we entered school with
great enthusiasm knowing this was our last year. Don
Dresser was elected president, Lula Holdridge vice
president, Gloria Van Loan secretary, liildred Mead
treasurer, and Jane Wiers student council represen
tative. Richard Blum Joined our class this year. As
Seniors we had the privilege of using the front door
Knowing we were going to Washington we made money
participating in the scrap paper dr1ve,magazine cam
paign and serving refreshments after the basketball
ames. Our bi step toward entertainment was the
instrel Show given in November. In DBCSIIIDOI' V9
sponsored the Christmas Dance with music by Steve
Jones and his orchestra. On return :from Christmas
vacation we ordered announcements for graduation and
were measured for caps and gowns. Then came our big
week in Washington, which no one will ever forget.
Soon came our class night activitles, exams, and in
June graduation, with smiles and tears we bid fare
well to our high school days.
