We did it !  The reunion was a success !!
All 166 attendees enjoyed visiting with old friends, made new friends and promised to stay in touch with each other.
 
We had a program MC'd by Paul Streiff and Jerry Harwood, a touching memoriam video put together by Kent Maxfield, a "Remember When" skit made up of committee members enacting the lighting of the "W", music with Dean Gillam and Chris Dokos, and a pledge to guard the 'panther' from Judy Barber and Sherry Fivas. 
 
We ate great food and danced afterwards with a DJ providing 60's music. 
We sang the school song and the victory song
lead by Susan Christenson

2 - Hit & Giggle GOLF
3 - Dinner at Camp Williams Officers Club
4 - 7-day western Caribbean cruise
