The Room was filled to capacity with 30 classmates, several from out of state, spouses, and other guests. The Reunion included a greeting from absent classmate Charlie Harris read by Linda Voges, a slide show by Jay Etheredge, and a video by Lenora Ohlenbusch. Among many of the memories captured from 50 years earlier in the slide show was the Powder Puff Football Game. The Class is underway in establishing a scholarship fund for TLU.
