The evening was adorned with the 20th Reunion banquet which featured a presentation by Keynote speaker Dr. Virginia R. Allen, entitled: "Wisdom of the Ages: A Guide for the Future". The night was also rewarded with Chris Allen's debut of our Family Crest/Coat of Arms. There was also a Fundraising raffle to raise money for an educational Scholarship, which raised $1,060.00 and was awarded to Gerwin Westfield on his way to Michigan University. The night concluded with a dance demonstration by Ricky & Gladys Dew and many others joined in with them.
