The Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School Class of 1966 gathered over the October 14-16 weekend to celebrate their 45th reunion.

Friday night, classmates and their spouses met at the Lookout Tavern in Oak Bluffs to catch up and reminisce over dinner. On Saturday evening, the group gathered at the P-A Club in Oak Bluffs for a sumptuous buffet.

A total of 25 classmates and spouses attended the event. Judith Manning Milvasky and her husband, Barry, traveled from Toronto, Carol Smith Pearson and her husband, Ray, from Michigan, and Susan Metell Wayne and her husband, Bruce Wayne, came up from Florida. The closest guest, Charlene Alley, only had to walk out of her “office” door at the P-A Club.

On Sunday morning, 19 classmates and spouses met at Farm Neck for a delightful buffet. Good-byes were exchanged along with pledges to “see you in 2016 for the big 5-0.”

The weekend was organized by Ann Boren Ross, Leslie Ingraham, Nancy-Alyce Colter Abbott, and Herb Ward.
