The program on Saturday night:

Classmates displayed pictures, hobbies, art and crafts, etc.

Ruth Rapoport Stotter made a crossword puzzle about West High School trivia, which the classmates enjoyed working on.  Gordy Corcoran and Karen Holmgren won prizes for completing the puzzle.  Thanks, Ruth, for preparing the crossword puzzle.

Sally Gugel Lavik gave a prayer which was very appropriate for the crowd.

Cindy Barret Wilson read a poem about 1950's culture.  The poem appeared on the internet, author unknown.  The poem, with accompanying pictures, can be read at Long Ago and Far Away.  The file is a bit large, so may take a minute to download.  Be patient.
