The results of over a year of work took place July 3-4 during the Fabulous Forties Sundance High School class reunion in Sundance last weekend. The fes- tivities began Friday evening with a banquet and dance at the elementary school. At least one member from each of the 10 classes registered people as they came in the door. The Sundance Commercial Club provided name tags. The teachers were given an apple with their name tag. The buffet style dinner, cooked by the Senior Citizens and Cow- Belles, was shared by 244 per- sons. The tables were decorated with floral arrangements made by Debbie and Nora Reimer. The flowers used represented the co- lors of each class at the time of their graduation. Red and white arrangements decorated the stage. Following the dinner, Iris Hughes of MoorcroR served as Mistress of Ceremonies for the entertainment. It began with the entire group singing, "You Are My Sunshine." The song words and list of entertainment were printed in a program book made by Iris Hughes and Nora Reimer. Floyd Carr, Mayor of Sundance, and also a member of the Class of 1943, welcomed everyone. The musical entertainment fea- tured songs popular in the forties. Claredna Reynolds Stordahl of Belle Fourche and her brother, Cecil Reynolds of Gillette, sang three songs. Cheryl Wales and Connie Hannah of Sundance sang a number of songs. The next item on the program was a clown act by Ruth Cleveland Reeves and her daughter, Murleen Reeves, from Studio City, Calif. They do prolessional work, appearing for children's birthday parties, etc. They are known as "Sprinkles and C.O. Company. Ruth is a member of the class of 1945. Throughout the program vari- ons small prizes were awarded. Bill Steele from Massachusetts and Edna Hutchins Washington from Florida received prizes for having traveled the longest dis- tance. The program ended with everyone standing to sing, "God Bless America." Dancing to the music of Lyle, Rick and Paul from Aviation Day set July 15 Aviation Day is a time for those participants in the Sundance Summer Recreation Program to learn about-air travel and the Sundance Airport.

"At the airport the youngsters will be able to see first hand the workings of airplanes and be able to sit at the controls of a simu- lator," said Miller. "After the tour of the airport, the young people will return for a "Kite Fly" at the footbad field. All youngsters are requested to bring an assembled kite for the kite fly," he added.

Installing officers were: Mil- dred Schloredt, installing matron; Annabelle Ellsbury, installing marshal; Jane Edwards, instatl- ing chaplain; and Margaret Davis, installing organist.

A program was given honoring the out-going matron and paten and gifts were presented to them. A gift was presented to the new matron from her newly installed officers, a potluck lunch was served after the installation. The next meeting is set for September 3. Spearfish, S.D. followed. Tl~ey continued the forties theme by playing quite a few songs popular in the forties and fifties. Refresh- ments were served during the evening by the group who cooked the supper. The dancing and visiting ended about 1 a.m. July 4th began with a light breakfast in the Crook County Courthouse Community Room. The meal was served by the Stmdance Emergency Medical Technicians. The old building, Old Stoney, was open aU day and many former students toured it. The Crook County Museum was open in the afternoon and a number of people expressed their enjoyment. The potluck picnic began at noon on the courthouse lawn. It was not possible to get an accurate count of attendance, but conservative estimates put the figure at over 500. Persons came from 16 different states. At I p.m., class pictures were taken on the steps of Old Stoney by Howard Allen and Una Seeley. Many individuals were taking pictures, too. The doors of Old Stoney had been in a sad state so Earl Gray, class of 1947, painted them recently. The bright red doors made a fitting background for the pictures, according to the classmates. Many old friendships were re- newed and refreshed. Smiles, handshakes and hugs were the order of the day. One of the most popular items was the Fabulous Forties Reunion books. Informa- tion forms had been sent to class members. These forms were re- typed and then sent to a printer. The finished books contain over 280 biographies and addresses of students and teachers plus ad- dresses for most of the ones who didn't return the information form. The books have white cov- ers with red plastic binding. It is dedicated to Mrs. Elizabeth T. Brandt. Additional copies of the book can be ordered from any of the class representatives. There were a few items left on the tables at the picnic. If you are missing a spoon or something, contact Margaret Davis, Sun- dance.
