Class of 1969 Celebrates Its 50th

Hey 1969 Classmates: The Reunion Committee wants to say thank you so much to everyone who joined us for our 50th Class Reunion this past weekend. Many traveled from great distances and many came from close by. I believe everyone is saying they had a fantastic time over the entire weekend.

Around 70 classmates joined us Friday evening for the high school tour hosted by the High School Principal. It was a little warm but sure a lot of fun walking the halls again after so many years. Nearly 60 then went to the Elks for a fun time social hour.

We had nearly 25 come for fun at Paige's Crossing on Saturday morning for fun and games, go cart racing and miniature golf.

Then at the main event on Saturday evening, there were over 120 that joined us for the evening. The decor and atmosphere was beautiful. The decorations were perfectly themed. The food was excellent and the cash bar was hopping all evening. Class pictures were taken as well as many photos of the activities taking place during the evening.

Jim Rice read a beautiful poem and invocation as well as the names of our classmates who have gone before us. Kaye Carlson wrote and read a beautiful class reflection piece that held everyone's attention. Keith (Band Director) and Rosie Fox joined us for the fun evening. There was a beautiful memorial table for our classmates. There were many items of interest as well as a really full and fun agenda.

The entire evening went by so fast and everyone was sad to see it come to an end. We wish more classmates could have joined to say hi to old friends and catch up on the lives that all have lived and enjoyed. Like all things that we think of as the "Best of Times", this is now also a part of our Class of 1969 history. What a great weekend to be a part of.

For those traveling home long distances, thank you for coming so far and have safe travel home to your families. For those that live locally or shorter distances, thanks for participating and adding to the fun and be safe every day as well. It certainly was a weekend to remember.

Remember, "We're so Great, We're So Fine' We're The Class of 1969!
