The best ever and I (we)
enjoyed seeing and talking to everyone. These
seem to be the standard statements from our Reunion attendees.
The two-night event began with a two-hour dinner cruise on
Hotel's yacht The Princess. We boarded the yacht at 6:15 P.M. The
provided by the Hilton Hotel, was outstanding. After dinner we were able
visit with each other - we had a total of 71 people on the cruise.
While some of us were on the dinner cruise, several classmates were gathered
in the Hospitality Room. Once the dinner-cruise people joined the group
the Hospitality Room, the room began to get smaller, or so it seemed. We
had so many classmates and friends in attendance that we spilled out into
the hallway and even the hallway seemed too small. But that did not prevent
us from visiting with each other.
Later in the night, we moved from the Hospitality Room to Judy's suite for
more visiting. If you get a chance, ask Linda Jackson and Linda Mills what
time they left the suite.
On Saturday morning the guys had their golf tournament but the only report
passed on is that it was another success.
On Saturday night we had a short program before our delicious dinner.
Richard Alford, Chairman of the Reunion Committee, had some fun by
acknowledging some of our classmates - the ones brave enough to speak up to
some of the questions. A couple of the questions were: which classmate
traveled the most miles to attend the reunion - Lucy Norell-Criswell, and
which classmate had been married the longest - Lorraine Phillips-Beermann.
After dinner we had an opportunity to visit again. We had two rooms -
across the hall from each other - for everyone. The room where we had
dinner was for visiting - talking and telling tall tales - and the other
room was for dancing and visiting. We were back and forth between the 2
rooms all evening. Our DJ's enjoyed themselves and stayed longer than any
we have ever had in past years. The hotel security let us stay until 2:00
At 2:00 AM we went to Judy's suite for a couple more hours of good times.
We, the reunion committee, hope that you had as much fun as we did. We
hope to see you at our next reunion.
Or maybe we will have a 60th Birthday party in 2007 and invite the years
1955 through 1967 as we did for our 50th Birthday party. If you have any
thoughts on this, let us know.
Below is a list of attendees. If you attended and your name is not listed,
