The 20th reunion took place in the Summer of 2002.  We had a picnic and a banquet.  The details get fuzzier as time passes, like vision, memory, ...what was I talking about? Anyway, here's what we did.

The Picnic

It was great to see everyone who came for the picnic, including the kids.  The grownups chatted while the children played games and a good time was had by all.

In case you want to have a future event at the picnic location:

Westwood Baptist Church Pavilion
4001 Georgetown Road NW
Cleveland, TN
(423) 472-1534 

 

The Banquet

Contrary to rumor, the choice of this location was NOT due to a plot by the single alumni (as far as we know).  The Bridal Center was owned and operated by one of our own, Joan Lougheed Campbell.   She longer operates the business.    But their facilities and catering services were just the thing to make our evening especially enjoyable, and her offer to provide catering and the place was too good to pass up.

 

 

Tony Pharr and Lisa Williams Geren (our very own radio personality classmate) did a commendable job of hosting the banquet and resisting the temptation to say things like "OH, my LORD, what HAPPENED to you people?!"   Several classmates got to share talents (Becky Chase Jenkins sang, Mark Hall sang and did a revealing comedic slideshow, having shamelessly lifted the concept from Conan O'Brien--see "If They Had Wed", Lisa sang) and there were jokes, barbs, awards for hair loss, etc. and then lots of sweaty dancing and general merriment.

If you have more details, memories and/or rebuttals to offer, contact the webmaster and maybe they'll show up here.  We admit this ain't exactly the History Channel so far.
