Does it take a milestone anniversary for a high school graduating class to get together?

Not if you’re the Pittston High School Class of 1966.

Some two dozen members of the class — about a quarter of the graduates — gathered last Saturday night, April 27, at Arcaro & Genell’s Restaurant in Old Forge to enjoy food, drink and fellowship. And all in attendance said they were glad they did.

Class members and their guests spent the evening relating stories, old and new, and enjoying all sorts of memorabilia on display, including the “To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield” sign that hung in the lobby of the high school displaying the school motto.

Classmates agreed that similar gatherings should be held annually leading up to the 50th anniversary celebration in 2016.

The Class of ‘66 was the last graduating class of Pittston High. The following year was the first year of the Pittston Area School District.
