A delicious meal was prepared and served by the Elks. The treasurer’s report was given by Cindy Ellis Pavey ‘76. The secretary’s report was made available by Anita Spurlin Simpson ‘71.

Introductions and recognition of classes followed. The awards for $1,000 scholarships were presented by David Payne ‘83.
