The class hosted an open Hospitality Room on the second floor with free drinks and food the entire time starting Friday afternoon through Saturday.  On Saturday evening our Banquet-Dance began with a great dance band which featured, three female singers - The Fabulettes. A large screen video slide show with pictures from the past was presented in the background during the intros and meal. The food was excellent as was the music and ambiance. But the hit of the night for the class was a 35 minute (with encore) vocal performance by our own Prexie professionals - Bobby Morris, Bill Potts, Billy Cleary and Jim Godwin (back on drums), who sang and played a rockin an rollin set with Mike Boran (former Decca recording star and also a GWalum) and his wife, Christine.  Bobby, Bill and Mike had been meeting and practicing in secret for about ten months preparing for this mutually-memorable experience. It was definitely a totally unexpected and enjoyable surprise for the class.  Every attendee received a gift bag that contained; a handsome marble paperweight with an inscribed The Golden One logo, a reunion handbook with many memorable photos and a complete listing of classmate names, with addresses and phone numbers. Each bag also held a commemorative CD, produced by Dave Beach, of 28 of the most representative songs of our generation. The 55 Reunion Committee, which included John and Sue Cox, David Beach, Peggy and Lambert Barnett, Julia Gunn Shoup, Wilda Kesterson Armstrong, Ealine Mosel, Janet Hewitt George, Sonny and Sada Weitzel Johnson, Bill Duff, Bim Perry, Betty Berkes Treger and Barclay Bell Nakhleh, worked for about 4 years to plan this fine affair.
