Works of Art to Lead LAHS Homecoming Parade

The Los Alamos High School Graduating Class of 1964 will have its 50th Reunion in Los Alamos instead of Albuquerque.

Opting to hold it on the weekend of LAHS’ Homecoming Game Sept. 19, the Organizing Committee chose to bring to their alma mater and Los Alamos much of the business many reunions give to Albuquerque.

The Administration of LAHS graciously invited the Class of ‘64 to ride and walk in the lead of the Parade Friday afternoon with a special seating section that evening at the game against Farmington’s Kirkland Central High Bronco’s.

Everyone thought it might be really ‘cool’ if the ’64 Homecoming Court could ride in ’64 vintage vehicles … however, locating such transportation proved to be a bit more of a challenge than first thought. After putting the word out through various contacts and media, having several volunteer and then drop out due to engine difficulties, it is exciting to finally announce that the ’64 Court will be in convertibles and classmates will ride in a beautifully restored pick-up truck – all vintage works of art folks!

Some photos of the vehicles that these regional local owners are so graciously providing will be seen here in the weeks leading up to the Parade. This week the featured work of art is the incredible 1964 Chevy convertible of Armando Jaramillo, a member of Los Guys Car Club in Española.
