"I attended east denison and still live in my parents home. I am trying to locate a picture of the graduating classes of 1965 and 1966 if they are available.

Several of the kids I went to school with then have passed away and I cannot locate the parents to see if they have any of the pictures. My name when I attended was Debra Manson."
