The weekend started Friday afternoon with painting of the Rock. Then off to the Perry Golf and Country Club where we had our first get together. For some this was the first time they had ever been back to Perry for a class reunion.
Saturday we went on a tour of the Perry High School, which is now the middle school, with Tom Lipovac as our guide. After the tour John Palmer gave us a narrative bus ride around Perry while giving us a little history lesson in the process.
We got together on Friday and Saturday night with Larry Vodenik showing slides of Perry in the 1960s and us as young high school kids. John Palmer and Joe McCarty from the Perry Historic Preservation Commission were available for questions and to sell books detailing Perry's past.
Our class wanted to thank Tom, John and Joe for making our reunion special. We would also like to thank Hy-Vee and Dustin Deitrick, Kitchen Mgr. for great Hors d'oeuvres and a wonderful meal, the Perry Country Club and everyone who made our weekend a time we won't forget.
We had close to a hundred classmates and their spouses present for both nights activities. The reunion organizing committee was very pleased with the response.
