What a weekend!  Smiling faces everywhere from start to finish! 
Over 150 classmates -- and their guests, bringing the number to around 200 -- attended and had a great time, from Friday morning's golf tourney at Shawnee Country Club, to the Meet & Greet hosted by Dale & Maggie Warren, to the Halls of Troy Saturday morning, then our Main Event party at the Ramada... and last but not least, a fine jam session at Snyder's Cabin in Gage Park on Sunday.
Photos are now posted in the Class Reunions Gallery!  Click on "Class Reunions" on the left menu bar.


Many thanks to the planning team and everyone who attended.  By popular demand, plans for future reunions will be in the works!
