Many Alumni Return for Homecoming Weekend

More alumni than usual returned to campus for Homecoming Weekend events June 6-8.  Forty-four members of the high school Class of 1964 gathered to renew friendships and reminisce (62% of living graduates).  For the first time in 7 years the banquet Friday evening was completely sold out, with more than 200 attending.  During the banquet, another 150-200 alumni and friends attended the family picnic.  A record-breaking number of just over 250 people showed up for the pancake breakfast Sunday morning.
