"Your Hit Parade"

2007 Homecoming


1959 Class Breakfast 2007

Get Ready .. Set..



... SMILE ...


The 2007 Class Breakfast continues to grow.  We had such a good time it was difficult to stop chattering long enough for photos - as a result some of our classmates left before photos were taken.


Thanks to all the classmates that worked on our float.  Our float didn't win 1st place but naturally we thought it should have.  The '57 Chevy tail was created by Norma and Doyne.  The booth came from the old Snack Bar and the front seats from the old Theatre. 





The Host Class 1957 exceeded expectation with their "Hit Parade" Theme

The stage was professionally set and anyone not attending missed a fantastic production.

Songs such as "Sincerely" performed by '57 class members brought down the house.  Jamie Hartford (son of Betty Beck) and his band gave a stellar performance-a real treat for Gideon.
