Weymouth graduates in the Class of 1972 will have two chances to celebrate their 40th reunion this year.
Members of the Weymouth North and South classes, which were split into two schools when the new high school opened after their sophomore year, are invited to attend the two reunions. The reunion organized mostly by Weymouth South graduates is set October 6 and a Weymouth North reunion scheduled for November 24.
Most of the past reunions have been joint events, but it has been 10 years since any official events have been organized.
“It was a fluke. Neither group knew what the other was doing, so now everyone has a chance to go to both,” says Anne Driscoll, Weymouth North Class of 1972 Treasurer and one of the organizers of the Nov. 24 reunion, in a press release. “This isn’t a tale of two cities. It’s a tale of one town and two reunions.”
The South reunion will take place from 7 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, October 6 at the Weymouth Elks Club. Tickets to the reunion are $25, including a cash bar, refreshments and music.
Checks may be made payable to Joan Conkling, 56 Keating Circle, South Weymouth, MA 02190.
The second event will be held at the Sons of Italy Hall in Weymouth, from 7 to 11 p.m. on November 24, the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The $15 ticket for the reunion can be purchased at the door or using PayPal by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
