First Class Celebrates Bridgewater-Raritan's 50 Years
The Class of 1962 reflects on being the first group to walk the halls of the high school.
The first graduation class of Bridgewater Raritan High School—the Class of 1962—held it's 50th reunion at the Raritan Valley Country Club Saturday evening.
More than 80 class members of the 235 graduates attended the event in addition to a number of teachers and friends. The total attendance Saturday was nearly 120 people.
"We spent our freshamn year in Somerville and then transferred over," Beatrice Parronchi Trotta said. "We felt so accountable."
Kathy Sian Kowal said "it was tougher for us to date, because there was no upper class."
Lucille Gingoli McCobb has a sense of pride being a member of the first class.
"We had a leadership role," she said. "We were the first class. We developed the class ring, motto; one of our alumni did the class song, and our alumni did the yearbook."
