OLD SCHOOL REUNION

    One Last Hurrah .....

 

Saturday July 25th, 2009

 

Members of the original Jtown High School classes from 1925 - 1950, will be having their final reunion at the Jeffersontown Community Center.  Festivities will occur during the day, with a dinner around 6:00 pm.
 
The original high school opened in 1925, with the 1st graduating class,
"The Class of 1929"; which graduated eleven students.  When the school was closed in 1950, with about 500 students enrolled, those students were re-assigned to Eastern & Fern Creek High Schools.


The Old Jtown high school, was the same building where many of us went to elementary school; the old Jeffersontown Elementary School on the corner of College & Galene Drives.  With its big flight of stairs in the front of the building, to its spiral fire escapes slides from the 2nd floor.  How many of you used to slide down those things, during the summer carnivals & fall festivals held there for so many years.  That building was torn down & replaced by Tully School, where the location is still the beginning of many dreams for today's children.

 

Here are just a few interesting pictures from a recent 60th reunion
