Darla Smith Mathis read her poignant remembrances of the '60s era. Richard and Evelyn McNeil Coltman presented a humorous video production that paired classmate pictures from several years of annuals with 75 popular songs of the era. Catherine Mashburn Chambers and several ladies of the class decorated with white lilies and candles and also distributed memorabilia booklets to each class member. Evelyn McNeil Coltman and Pam Satterfield Jolly distributed door prizes, including hand-made clocks and a dulcimer made by Eugene Church.
Berry Rigdon was charged with taking pictures of all classmates and was assisted by Coy Rigdon and Madeline Ottinger.
