The Walter P.

Saturday night the class met at the W. G. Smith Building in Memorial Park for the dinner-dance. On display were several memorabilia items such as a huge Class of ‘63 banner, several pictures from the yearbook that were blown up and mounted on boards, including boys and girls cheer blocks. Also on display were senior cords, letter jacket, memory boards of deceased classmates, scrapbooks of past reunions and class luncheons that are held bi-monthly.
