About 50 alumni attended the reunion events, just more than 30% of the class' 159 graduating seniors.
Friday night kicked off the festivities with a Casual Patio Party at the home of class member Dr. Charles Safley. Simply stated, it appeared many were joyous at seeing classmates again. Attendance was very good, with just about all the alumni registered to attend the reunion events showing up, along with spouses and guests.
Saturday night celebration moved to Justine's for social hour, a barbecue dinner, and dance featuring a DJ playing 50's music. Again, attendance was about as expected from advance registrations.
An informal inquiry indicated the class member traveling the most to participate was Toni Madden Peters, who came from Seattle. Factulty members noticed in attendance included Mrs. Margaret Taylor on Friday night and Mrs. Lilburne Vollmer on Saturday night.
The "second twenty year reunion" appeared to provide fun for all those in attendance.
