At 6PM the Madeo Room opened and attendees were greeted with a Hollywood setting which included Hollywood stars, glamorous decorations, popcorn treats and a fabulous movie format. Socializing continued for another hour followed by a speech by former Class President Chuck Wilcox. A buffet dinner with a wide selection of food was provided as classmates and guests continued to converse and catch up with each other. Ke-Aliens and guests then grooved to the live sounds of Soul Shot which played danceable oldies. Dancing continued right up to midnight. Significant songs played included "In My Life" and "Stairway to Heaven" our class song. Several cool gifts were presented to lucky raffle ticket winners. The events that transpired during the evening allowed guests to take home great memories not only of the gala affair but of their classmates, old school experiences and visiting with lifelong friends. It was a spectacular Hollywood night to remember.
