Guys and Gals

Dances, athletic privs, parlor dates, ski days, make-out sessions in Recitation Hall’s parking lot (no wonder the place burned down) and other gatherings were all part of life for the guys and gals of the Class of 1970 as we tried to, as Bob Seger put it, “lose them awkward teenage blues.”

Several couples took their relationships to the alter, including Bob Glover and Linda Kellogg, Ken Witherspoon and Bonnie Mackinnon, Neil Kiely and Laurie Reich, John Witty and Ellyn Spragins, Seth Hetherington and Jean Spitznagel, Les Clifford and Liz Lewis, Carrie Pelzel and Bruce McClintock (’60), and Doug Freeman and Joanne Smolen.

For the rest of us, those sweet innocent relationships live in our memories.
