2007 - 30th REUNION PHOTOS

Class of "77" 30th Reunion

Hello Everyone! If you attended the reunion you know first hand the reunion was the best we've ever had! Everyone had a BLAST! The total attendance was approx. 145 people. The celebration went on with many classmates staying in town for the whole week. It allowed for many to catch up on literally "OLD" times.

The weekend actually started Friday morning with golf at the Ingleside golf Corse. Jeff Hoehing was in charge and did a great job . There were 5 foursomes and the winning foresome was Bob Diberadinis, Ken Porter, Wes Gabriel and Steve Gehrlein. They were caught on the course being alittle naughty...so stay tuned to the blog for some great laughs!! PICTURES INCLUDED.lol

Awards for the longest married with 29 years was given to Donna Benton Irey.

For the Furthest traveled to the reunion from Okinawa, Japan (you figure out the Miles), goes to Dean Warner.

For the most times Married...4 Times, that would be Debbie Rowley Richard.

The most Number of children goes to a very busy man...Fred Minahan with 5.

And last, but not least, the award for the most grandchildren goes to Kimberly Brown Johnson with 8 Grandbabies.

The D.J. was one of our own "77" classmates Rick Barringer. He did a wonderful job keeping the class involved and sometimes calming the troops. Karen Downing Brown took control of the dance floor in her sundress and cowboy boots! (check out the pics)

An informal vote was taken and the Male and Female classmates who are the "BEST PRESERVED" were...
Male: Nick Zaferes...Looking exactly the same as high school and IF HINDSIGHT WERE 20/20...lol
In the female category there was a tie between... Anne Fisher looking mighty CHIC in her Armani outfit. AND Karen Protivnak looking Beautiful and well preserved without a wrinkle in her face!! WHAT IS YOUR SECRET?? Every woman wants to know!! Contact Michaele and she will pass it along! lol.(we're just jealous Karen)
