50th Reunion : April 4-5, 2014

Saturday evening festivities were held in the banquet room at the top of EverBank field. The amenities and food were superb!  Classmate photos were taken as we entered as well has 100’s of candid shots during the evening. The facility had TV monitors placed throughout which featured a slide slow of old classmate photos. If you can believe it, the dance floor remained crowded to the 60’s music provided by our DJ.  The “old folks” still know how to party … although the party room at the hotel was a little silent that night. Each attendee received a Paxon mug as well as a package of personalized Paxon Class of ’64 M&M’s. Our special guest on Saturday was Barbara Wesseling, former senior English teacher.

Many thanks to Merrilee Hysler and Linda Novak who handled the reception desk on Friday night and Lana Brantley, Judy White & Harold Rowe (all class of ’63) who did the same on Saturday night.  They allowed us all more time to spend with classmates.
