1958 & 59 Starters Reunion

June 28th, 2002 - The Old Rectory, Stockport

This was a group of friends and classmates getting together for dinner and a few drinks after an absence of 30+ years. Some of the group had met from time to time over the years, but most of us were getting together for the first time since 1965.
