On Friday, July 2, 1999, the Class of 1969 hosted the first All-Classes Reunion Party at Murphy's Party Barn. (That seems like a loooong time ago, doesn't it?) We were entertained by "British Invasion," a great band know for performances up at Put-in-Bay. Schmidt's, of course, provided the Bahama Mamas, dogs and beer.

The CRO tradition was revived as guys and gals bought new, freshly-made CRO shirts. Brad Frick, Harvey Ford, and others who are even older than we are wore their ORIGINAL CRO shirts, which ... by the way ... they wore very well!! Thanks to Tom O'Shaughnessy and John Winkel for organizing this event.

A large group of UA69-ers headed out to play golf between parties. Winners were: Pat and Linda Caldwell, Ken Pfeifer, and Phil Weiser.

On Saturday, July 3, 1999, the class had the main party at Riviera Country Club. As you can see from the pictures, everyone had a great time, reuniting with old friends and making new ones.

Digital cameras have come a long way - I apologize for the poor quality of most of these photos!

Dave Cooper, Gordon Mitchell, Ken Pfeifer, and others headed up the project of building the Class Float at Jim Long's house. There will be no flatbed with bales of hay for the Class of 1969! Our Float Committee is the best!

On July 4, we gathered at Kingsdale to climb onto the float and make the parade ride down Northwest Boulevard and then went to the Alumni Association Block Party afterward.

We all humbly agreed that our float was the best-designed class reunion float in the parade.
