An all-class reunion took place on September 29 and 30, 2012 for all classes (7th through 12th grades) that attended Purdys Central High until it closed in June of 1962. The attendees included classmates who had moved on before graduation and eventually graduated from other high schools - including the new North Salem High School that replaced Purdys Central.
Word of the reunion spread far and wide during the planning phase. Even though Purdys Central closed in 1962, we had attendees from classes that graduated from other schools as late as 1969! The reunion turned out to be a fantastic event and a perfect opportunity to re-establish old friendships. Nearly 200 people attended from the few hundred classmates that were located... amazing considering that the average class size was probably about 20 and the school closed 50 years ago!
Classmates spent the precious time we had together catching up and reminiscing about that wonderful place and time we shared a long time ago in our collective history. Whether you are participant or a visitor, you surely will enjoy the following pages containing photographs and a video from those two glorious reunion days.
