************************
When the evenings at our reunions are over, we still can't quite give it up. Several of us stay in the same hotel and meet in the dining room of the Days Inn. The gatherings can be from 8 or so to as many as 15 or 20, depending on the time and the night, but there is almost always a group there after every reunion day. Those conversations have been known to go on until the wee hours of the morning. These talking and laughing sessions have been wonderful over the years, and some of the comments and stories from those times still make us laugh.

We were sitting in that same dining room one morning, having breakfast before going on our way, and there was a lady and her sister sitting at the other table. We were talking away amongst ourselves and had not really paid much attention to the other people there. One of the ladies heard us mention the Class of '61 and spoke to us. It was Nyrell Castle and her sister. She joined us and we had a good long talk, getting reacquainted with her. We have kept in touch with her ever since, and she graciously contributed to our cookbook. She told us she remembered our class, and she told us then how much she had loved working as secretary at CHS.
