RIDGEWOOD — They sat inside the principal’s office on Friday for the first time in nearly six decades, only this time, they weren’t in any kind of trouble.
Instead, a bunch of lifelong friends — now scattered across the United States in places as far away as Arizona, Florida, Texas and Minnesota — gathered inside Somerville Elementary School Principal Lorna Oates-Santos’ office to share tales of childhood mischief and about the families they’ve since raised.
These eight men and women, members of Somerville’s first graduating class, were in town to attend their 55th high school reunion on Friday night at Mac Murphy’s on Godwin Avenue.
