Special guests for the evening were Coach Frank Gibson and his wife, Sandra. The class made a donation to be used toward revitalizing the gym to serve the community. Leaving the gym, the class reconvened at Richie and Reggie’s Restaurant for food and fellowship and to watch the grand display of fireworks. On Saturday morning, the classmates met in the activities building of Bible Union Church. The DHS Family, Career and Community Leaders of America decorated for the occasion. Class members received an attractive booklet of their submitted biographical information. After the meal, a “Memory Lane” Power Point highlighted “the growing up years.” After musical entertainment, the rest of the day was spent in the “fine art of conversation,” recalling tales of younger years and becoming current with one another.
