Members of the first graduating class of the "new" Chatham High School held their 36th-anniversary class reunion on the premises of their alma mater on the evening of September 8, 2001.
Col. Andy Todd, Elsie Todd, and Lois Anderson gamely don nametags, thus officially sanctioning the reunion of their former students. (R1)
Eva Rorer and Helen Moser await the action of the evening (do you suppose this group of students will relapse to their habitual tardiness?!). (R1)
Watson and Betty Buntin and Terry and Carolyn Busby Schultz stop for a snapshot in the school vestibule. (R1)
Henry and Patricia Mitchell, Don and Donna Watson Hogg, and Ron Miller pause near the registration desk. (R1)
Further arrivals include Pam Crane Norton, Jerry Brumfield, and Brenda Finch … (R1)

Carl Reynolds, Morris Gauldin, Priscilla Geier Munson, and Rodger Holley can still smile about the good ol' days at Callands and Chatham. (M2)
George Haley and Art Pruett haven't given up trying to get Henry Mitchell to do something (anything!) athletic. (M1)
And neither did Patricia Beaver Mitchell (class of 1967) ever display any tendency toward athleticism for Mrs. Lois Anderson, they both recall!(M2)
On the other hand, Mrs. Eva Rorer shares with Patsy Mahan Gauldin her satisfaction that at least some of these students of yore have proven their excellence in skills of home management and cuisine. (M2)
Henry Mitchell demonstrates fly-catching technique while H. B. Riddle looks on in quiet embarrassment. (M1)
George and Mary Kathryn Haley prove that the CHS faculty, as always, leads the class of '65 in… (M1)
