ALFRED GLEN LEADING MULTIPLE CHOIRS IN SINGING FLINT CENTRAL'S

"THE ALMA MATER" AND "FIGHT SONG"

 

 

The Alma Mater

 

To Central High a song we sing.

To praise her noble name;

Here's to her colors red and black

Of honored deeds and fame.

 

Chorus:

Join one and all to swell the song

Arousing chorus to prolong.

In reverence our voices raise

To Alma Mater's praise

 

Come wave her colors brave on high,

Her champions are we,

And pledge our faith to her in song

So strengthened we shall be.

 

Tho' years may roll and cares may come

In living letters set,

Our thoughts of you forever true

Will linger with us yet.

 

 

Class President, Dee Allen, addressing Reunion attendees

 

 

Rick is calling out the lucky numbers for the

door prizes and Steve is keeping talley.

 

 

Fight Song

 

On Flint Central, On Flint Central,

Tear right through that line.

Down the field and past the goal post,

Make a score this time.  Rah! Rah! Rah!

 

On Flint Central, On Flint Central,

Fight on for your fame.

Fight, fellow, fight,

And we will win this game.

VAGIOS' VAGARIES

     Let me share some thoughts about the 1963 FCHS gathering of eagles. What a great cement time is. You're thrilled to see people you hardly spoke to. You genuinely bond with people you didn't even know existed. You laugh uproariously with people; about whom you have dreamed, tearing their fingernails out one by one since 10th grade, and yes there's an element of schadenfreude when you see certain people. Time is also cruel; we're not saints, but we had a grand time any way didn't we?    

     I don't remember any of you being that funny and witty in high school. But, you all over achieved that weekend. I was surrounded by laughter and goodwill.

At a post reunion committee meeting,  Kathy LeBar or Cathy Gaffney told a story about an incident at a pre managed soiree that the ever effervescent and enthusiastic Richard Beal and his charming wife hosted. Beal, Rich Pope, and another Richard were standing together and someone said, "Look three Richards and they're all Rich." Beal without hesitation turned and repartees, "This is no time to be a Dick."

     Like I said I don't remember everyone being as witty and funny. Well maybe Beal was half as witty. I'm sure that if a poll of Beal's classmates and teachers were taken it would be almost unanimous that he was a half wit in high school. Err....sorry Dick.   I mean Rich. There were many incidents that weekend that deserve repeating and sharing. I heard all the laughter. I saw all the amused and pleased expressions. Send them in it's your duty to spread CHS spirit and laughter. Remember Stan Broome and give 110%!
