St. Croix Hall, Friday Evening, June 21st, at 7.30 o'clock (Standard).
Motto: "Fac hodie proximum officium"

Class Ode
C.H.S. '89
Air: "America"

Now are our school days o'er,
Now opes the mystic door,
For Eighty-nine.
Fond recollections ours,
Mem'ries of happy hours
Spent in fair Wisdom's bowers,
Our hearts entwine.

"Duty" our watch-word be,
Each striving earnestly,
His part to bear.
Ne'er let our courage fail;
They only will prevail
Who bravely breast the gale
And nobly dare.
