First Classes: 1957, '58, '59, '60
The Football Guys
You get some
idea of the lovely interior space of "The Grand Atrium", which hosted
McLean's multi-year (1957-1960) reunion, Fall of 2005. Perry
Fletcher '57 and Lucy have created the venue on Gallows
Road, and have often donated it to McLean High's earliest
graduating classes for their reunions.

Fay has organized many of the Class of '60 reunions, slaved over the
address directory, pleaded with classmates to get email addresses.

For many reunions
Monte Snyder (and Donald G.
Vanness) '58 and
co-conspirators Jo Stoddard Pifer '57, Betsy Trice Needham '59, and
Clyde Clark '60 have provided a home for all four of McLean
High's earliest classes. Monte and "Donny" threw open the doors of
their house, but mostly they threw everyone out of the house into
the backyard and the park beyond -- Olney Park. Blow the picture
up -- their house is to the left of the house
hung out with red, white
and blue bunting
. At the
photographer's back is the park's picnic pavilion,
open-sided with plenty of benches and tables under cover, and counters
in the center groaning under more food than twice the crowd could
