Ainsworth High School celebrates it's reunions each year for every class at once with special focus on the reunions that are in five-year increments like Maggie's 40th. And so with so many classes coming to town at once, it's a big reunion weekend each year with many activities planned.

Today was the antique car show, followed by burgers, fries, and root beer floats at the Elk's Club, all starting at 5:30pm on Main St.

But first, we checked out Larry's 1968 Ford 100 pick-up truck that Dave has restored for his father's 70th birthday and to enter into the car show. It turned out beautiful, with almost everything original.

Then, we took Braddock on a five-mile walk around town to see Maggie's best friend from school, Gail, who is the town librarian, and then to take some flowers to Maggie's mother's (and father's) grave at the south cemetery.

Later in the afternoon Larry and Judy took us to lunch at a saloon in Johnstown, then to see some local attractions out in the country: Smith Falls and Meadville. It was all a grand time!

The car show was very cool with lots of neat old cars, trucks, and homemade hot rods. And nobody was surprised when Larry and Dave took home first place for the restored Ford truck.

After burgers at the Elk's club (and lot's of catching up with Maggie's old schoolmates), we all headed to the Silver Circle Saloon for snooker and beer...yeehaw!
