     Our 45th Year Class Reunion in 2002 was probably our best so far. On Friday evening, we watched the Marion Wildcat Football Team battle the Centralia Orphans from our Tailgate Party tent pitched just west of the football field. We enjoyed hot dogs and hamburgers while watching the Wildcats lose.
     On Saturday night, we all enjoyed a declicious meal at the Knights of Columbus Hall on North Russell Street and then settled into a program of looking backwards in time. This reunion, we hired a Disc Jockey who played rock and roll music all night. Many of the song requests were from the audience. We then ended the evening with a special "Karaoke" singing session. Many of our classmates showed their latent singing talents by performing before their peers.
     On Sunday morning, bright and early at 7:00am, we met for breakfast at Cracker Barrel Restaurant. Not all of us were bright and alert due to the previous evenings activities. But we all enjoyed the companionship and looked forward to the 50th Year Reunion, due in 2007.
