Back with class

Bing Crosby was singing Now is the Hour, Art Mooney was Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover, Slinkys were all the rage with kids, poodle skirts were not yet on the fashion radar and the Oak Bay High class of 1948 was graduating and setting out into a bright future. Fast forward 66 years and some of those grads turned out for a luncheon last week to commemorate graduation day and reconnect with old pals. The Oak Bay High Class of 1948 celebrated their ninth reunion since graduating 66 years ago on Thursday, May 22 at Uplands Golf Club. The last reunion held was in 2011. - Don Denton/News staff
