Members gathered again with spouses, for a banquet at the Pence Springs Hotel. Sam Rodgers served as Master of Ceremonies and Martha Ford Boyles and Nancy Bright were special guests. A mo- ment of silence was observed in memory of deceased classmates Patricia Leist Curry, Paul Armen- trout, Eugene AIIman, Vera Goodall, J. R. Jefferies, Gene Stanley and James Longanacre. Sam reminisced with some 40- year-old items from The Gossip and "Miss Ford" read a description of how to know you're getting older. It included such items as, "you're get- ting older when your house is too big and your medicine cabinet is too small." And, indeed, the dinner-table conversation did include a few refer- ences to what medicines were being taken and what body parts had been removed, replaced or realigned!
