Old friends from the class of 1960 at an Indiana high school share nostalgic memories as their fiftieth reunion draws near . . . This is the story of sixteen classmates who graduated from Indiana's Columbus High School in May, 1960. With their fiftieth high school reunion on the horizon, the "Columbus Crew" reconnected, and here the guys tell stories about growing up in the '40s, '50s, and '60s, and how those times impacted who they are today—offering both a glimpse into history and a delightful ride down Memory Lane. While the stories are unique to the Columbus Crew, they will rekindle memories for anyone who grew up in this glorious era—and for children and grandchildren of baby boomers, they show what life was like in mid-twentieth-century America. Let the Columbus Crew take you back to the days of flat tops, LPs, the Hula Hoop, transistor radios, Lassie, 20 cents per gallon gas, big bands, rock and roll—while sharing personal reminiscences of first cars, girlfriends, sports, jobs, getting into trouble and finding their way out, and much more.
