Hello Class of ’72!

We spent about 600 days together while in high school. Four decades have come and gone since we departed Arapahoe. We barely know each other after all this time, yet the turnout was tremendous for our 30-year class reunion! Bifocals were the norm as quick glances bounced off nametags. Many of us are grandparents now and it hardly seems possible.
