We all have memories of various plays and programs participated in or attended during our high school days. Here are some photos of the 1960 Carats Program to embellish those memories. (Click on album title to open. Once inside the album, click on individual thumbnails to view larger images.)

Charles Simmons found this article in a scrapbook his mother kept - I hope he'll be sharing more of such with us. In case you cannot read the caption, it identifies Glenda Burns, Sue Sanford, and Carolyn McSwain as candidates for Queen of the 1960 Carat's Show.

Charles writes of the second photo he sent today, "The second photo is of the 'Dixie Cats', a somewhat non-famous group of Dixieland players. Front row L-R: Billie Jean Trombatore and Carey Murphy. Second Row L-R: Ken Watts, Charles Simmons, John Hammerle, and Charles Ferguson." I remember that they performed at a number of school programs and shows, probably in the 1960 Carat show as well.

Wouldn't we love to hear these cats jammin' today? Surely they still have the talent and have maintained the lip, wind, and stamina to perform!!! Maybe they'll grace us with a few numbers at the 50th reunion celebration!

Cool ties, guys!!!

The Trade winds were from Milby. The first two names allude me, but the last two (left to right) are Brooks Wester, Jr. and David Jones.

The Highliters were not a Milby Group.
