20th Reunion
July 14, 2001
The twentieth reunion was a great success! 78 classmates attended along with 62 guests (see a list). Friday night was an informal party at the Snowmobile Club. Quite a crowd showed up, staying late into the night. Laurie Archer-Simmons won the 50/50 raffle. It was quite a challenge for some to remember the old faces, but we made it through. On Saturday, some family time was enjoyed at Arnold Brook Lake. Although it was far from the big loud crowd of Friday night, the kids had a great time. Catching leeches and crayfish was the big highlight for them. Of course Saturday night at the Country Club had an excellent turnout, and everyone looked fabulous. The place was great, the band was great, the food was great - you couldn't ask for more! The usual awards were presented - and the winners were:
  • Traveled the Furthest: Ed Chambers (Stone Mountain, Georgia)
  • Youngest Child: Lynn Barton (3 months)
  • Oldest Child: Laurie Archer-Simmons (23 years)
  • Most Children: Laurie Archer-Simmons (6)
  • Married Longest: Linda Day-Otis (20 years)
  • Most Recently Married: Lisa Hagerman-Brittain
  • Male Changed the Least: Tom Raymond
  • Female Changed the Least: Mary and Rosemary Cyr
  • Male Changed the Most: Dave Carlow
  • Female Changed the Most: Karen Bustard-Crandall
By the way, you had to be present to receive an award - sorry DeeDee (who traveled from Seattle), and any others who missed out.
