ALUMNI BANQUET WELL ATTENDED FRIDAY NIGHT
The third annual banquet of the Alumni Association, composed of graduates of
Minco High School, was held in the Minco high school auditorium Friday evening,
May 22nd. Two hundred and five ex-graduates, their husbands and wives attended
The class of 1931 was in charge of decorations. A Beach
Party was the motif used in the scheme of decoration. A fish net of blue crepe
paper covered the banquet tables, gold lifesavers for napkin rings, boats and
fish to give the impression of a nautical scene, made the various classes feel
the atmosphere of sailing onward through life as the sands of time ran swiftly
through the glass.
Superintendent and Mrs. J.E. Peery led the grand march,
accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Morgan, former superintendent. After the group
arrived at their places, Marvin Woodworth delivered the invocation, followed by
the Chairman, Sam McAdams, who in turn presented the toastmaster, J.E. Peery.
The Alumni sang songs of fellowship, heartily applauded
the vocal solos of Miss Alice Gentry and Edwin Dare; listened with a great deal
of amusement and interest to the remarks of J. W. Morgan, concerning the antics
of the original classes of Minco High School. Alex Woodworth, graduate of the
first class, welcomed the class of 1936 into the Alumni association, and Merle
Choice graciously responded to that welcome.
The toastmaster called for impromptu speeches from Bus
Wall and Hugh Fry.
The election of officers was held with the mantle of
chairman for the next year failing on the broad shoulders of Frank Wall and
Charles Stephenson as secretary and treasurer.
The Presbyterian Ladies Auxiliary served the
banquet in four courses. Following the banquet a group made up a theatre party
at a preview, while others attended a graduates dance in the Hume Hall.

greater and finer banquet in coming years.
