The typical roll call was not done. The announcement was made that all the classes ending in "0" & "5" had cancelled their get togethers due to the Covid-19. With that being said, The Alumni Association invited those 2 classes back for the 147th Banquet and a separate roll call will be done for those classes. Additionally 2 separate trophies will be purchased for this. This way classes ending in "1" & "6" will NOT have to compete for the trophies.
The night wrapped up with Karen Silvis from the Class of 1960 leading us in the Alma Mater
