Tribute To Class of '56

"Stroll Down Memory Lane "- 1956 Class

The 2006 Gideon School Reunion went off beautifully Saturday, September 2nd.  The day was bright and breezy with temperatures in the mid to high 70's. 

Class of 1956 celebrating their 50th year was the host of the Dinner.  The entertainment was good, featuring Jimmy Payne a graduate of the 1956 class.  Larry Sharp and Carl Blanchard did a "KGHS. 1956 Live Radio Broadcast" complete with sponsors such as Hilfiker's Grocery-Roy F. Elam-Broadhacker Cleaners-Princess Theater-Wilcoxson Furniture Co and Gideon Anderson Stores.  Interview with the sponsors was entertaining.

And of course, the 1956 basketball team showed up:  Kenneth Dye #66, Donald Orton #33, Bill Richardson #44, Guy Ashley #11, Truman Richardson #55, and John Shoemaker #77(protraying Wayne Smith, deceased.)

You guessed it, the cheerleaders were there too:  Anna Mae Howard, Ercil Cooper, Connie Wilhelm, and Barbara Baker.

It was a great evening with old friends.  Check out the 2006 Reunion pictures in "Phot Albums."
