So many people to thank for our fabulous 55+1 reunion. Bonnie Roettgers Blackledge (right) collected the money. Barb Norman balloons and cake. Carolyn Breyfogle Bumbacher and Steve White--day-of help. And thank everyone who attended--about 100, compared to 300 at our 50th. Covid caution kept many away, but you were all with us in spirit.
Carolyn Breyfogle, Steve White, Barb Maple, Bonnie Roettgers
Thanks to Herb McCartney aka Tech Bird for the amazing video show and music, all shared on a flash drive to those who attended. So sorry Herb couldn't attend--he had a church retreat event he couldn't miss.
Herb's reunion video is a classic! Along with the show, he also compiled about 4 hours of great music for the party (all 1965 or before, none after '65). Classmates attending the reunion received a flash drive of the video program, music, and more. Thanks Herb! BONUS on flash drive includes historic movie footage from 2 band trips, plus original audio from our class musicals Lil Abner and Wonderful Town from Paul Gustine and Larry Borman. Thanks to all who sent pics--Dave Scott, Barbara Drake, and many more.
And the true president of our class, Dick Alford (shown here at 50th). Though he couldn't attend due to a family vacation, and though he "retired" from reunions after the 50th, he was with us every step of the way planning this party. He also keeps a class bank account and manages the bills for reunions, somehow finding more $ to buy a class bench and other memorials.
Sadly, we lost track of the old door-prize door. After 50th, Charlie Biggs stored it for us, and when Charlie died we don't know where it went.
Check-in, Linda Hicks & Steve White.
