Description

Views from a car window, including going into the Fort Pitt Tunnel in Pennsylvania beneath Mount Washington. A TWA plane on the tarmac, children playing chase outside a house, mountain vistas, the State of Pennsylvania Monument at Gettysburg, dockside shots of a large naval ship, and skiing. The footage returns to the family home where mother is showing off an afghan, rocking in a rocking chair with it on her lap. New Year 1963, the family is waiting for midnight downstairs in the living room, playing with the family dog and the children are much older now. At midnight the mother is dancing kicking her feet up, kissing the father, and the children are popping balloons with pins, the youngest wearing a balaclava inside. Scenes of skiing, and then costal marsh habitats with foxtails. Scenes of scouts with flags marching. A reunion gathering for the 25th anniversary of the class of 1939. A parade including representatives of the class, followed by scenes of animals in enclosures, including deer, goats, and cattle.
