Tottenville High School Class of 1980 just celebrated their 30th reunion at the Hilton Garden Inn on Staten Island. Approximately 100 graduates came together to celebrate with a sumptuous buffet, DJ, and open bar.

A fun time was had by all, as old memories were rekindled, and new ones were made. Graduates shared stories and pictures of their families, travels, and new abodes. Dancing went on until the very end, with the DJ playing such favorites as 'Paradise By the Dashboard Light' and "Don't Stop Believing.'

Afterwards, the party continued at the hotel bar, and even a few intrepid graduates found their way to the New Dakota Diner for a very late breakfast. Talk about high school memories!

The next morning graduates met for breakfast before heading out to their destinations.

There is talk of an informal gathering at Joyce's Tavern in Eltingville during December, the second year of such a gathering.
