A souvineer reunion memory book was lovingly designed by Bill Wallen. Many people offered their time and money to assist in this endeavor. The book includes photos of the reunion at the Sofitel Hotel as well as the day that followed at JB. There are also many photos of people and places from the past. We have reproduced the written portion of the book here, and hope that it will inspire some of you to write your own memoirs and send them to us to include here in this website.
