Me too! Temps, 4 Tops, Mary Wells.....I don't know how many High School weekend parties we had where there was us, the "Romans" with one of the many girls clubs. We called the parties "socials". Parents gone and it was party time. Great music, dancing, drinking...yes drinking and what went along with that! We were all little angels! It was like a junior fraternity/sorority system.

We had football games against other clubs for money or beer. We had a softball season against other clubs too.

Boys clubs had names like Romans, Jesters, Ambassadors, Nobles, High Hats, Barons, Counts, Victors.... Some of these clubs originated as far back as the 1920's in North Hollywood or Van Nuys/Sheman Oaks in my area. These clubs were mostly comprised of school athletes when I belonged.

Girls Clubs had names like, Coranons, Omadons, Ortesions.....



Reunion showing scrapbook that went back to 40's.

Wednesday nights were "Club Nights". All the clubs boys & girls) had their meetings and then met up at Bob's Van Nuys afterwards.
