Our 45th reunion was held jointly with
the Class of '63 at the
Ocean Breeze Officer's Club,
Mayport Naval Station. The theme was "A Salute to Our
Military Veterans and Their Spouses".
Friday night was an informal event that allowed classmates to renew old
acquaintances and catch up on current activities of both old and new
friends. Saturday included a social hour, DJ & dancing, great food,
and more time to mingle with old friends. Individual/couple photos were
taken of all classmates. Entertainment was provided by DJ Ron
Cline. Guests included English teacher Barbara Wesseling and coaches Tom
Wasdin (& his wife, Sue), Ed Cunningham, and Jim Foster.
We had a little scare initially on Friday
when we discovered that "someone" had decided to replace the carpet in the
entrance way to the ballroom at noon on Friday. At 4PM the carpet was
still up and the entrance way was filled with furniture from the side
offices ... and classmates were due to begin arriving at any minute.
However, the Club staff was quick to help us work out an alternate
entrance through the bar ... after having to hide all the furniture that
had been moved there from the entrance hall. The ballroom itself where we
were meeting was fine. Classmates didn't seem to mind and handled it
well but the Committee was pretty stressed for a while! All the
carpet work was completed by Saturday night ... thank goodness! We had a
great variety of snacks and food but the favorite was probably the
chocolate fondue. Our carved ice eagle was really sharp!
