Class of '66 Turns 66 -- 2014 Picnic
(Group Photo HERE)

Full Gallery of Pictures available HERE

Seventy-three members of the Waynesboro Area Senior High School Class of 1966 gathered on Saturday, June 7, to celebrate their turning age 66 this year.  The date was chosen as it was the closest to the actual graduation date of June 8, 1966.  Over one-hundred people enjoyed a Savoy catered meal at the Moose Club Picnic Grounds west of Waynesboro.   Classmate Nancy Bonebrake Benshoff furnished birthday cupcakes, decorated in school colors of blue and gold, for the celebration.

Dave Wilhide served as Toastmaster.  Rev. Barry Rowe gave the invocation.  Following dinner classmates gathered for an informal group photograph, taken from a sliding board by Gerry Bream (Vertis's wife) .  George King read a list of old popular songs with new age-related titles, written by Dave Maloney.  Sally Yingst Manning thanked Committee Members for their help.  Classmates mingled as they looked at some old displays and antique cars.

Craig Cline was recognized for attending his first event and for being the first reservation.  Rodney Mentzer and Doretta Wisler were also recognized as attending for the first time.  Susan McCleaf Lyons, who moved from Waynesboro after ninth grade, was introduced as just being located through Facebook.   Other classmates were recognized for perfect attendance at reunions, and others who were attending for the second time since graduation.

In addition to throughout Pennsylvania, others came from Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio, and Virginia,

Committee members were:  Amos Bakner, Mary Ellen Beamer Sheffler, Donna Buhrman Myers, Jeff Funk, Don Kauffman, George King, Angie McKissick Summers, Sandy Mackley Shook, Teresa Mose Papoutsis, Bill Pfoutz, Carole Nogle Prohaska, Jim Ressler, John Ridge, Jeff Rock, Yvonne Sease Pfoutz, Faye Watts Rock, Ginny Wolf Hollinger, and Sally Yingst Manning.

Our former Exchange Student from Turkey, Melih, recently visited Waynesboro. He was on his way to Ann Arbor, Michigan to attend his son's college graduation. While in town, he visited with Mrs. Bushman, and then stopped by the home of Lynn MacBride, who lives near Sally Manning. We have a small gallery of photos of Melih and friends while in Waynesboro.
