There was a show of Ripley sites and past class photos shown on the large screen during the evening, presented by Greg and Lisa Haitz. The RULH cheerleaders were servers throughout the evening.

Another highlight was the introduction by vice president of the 50 year class of 1965, Darrell Anderson, of his classmates. Forty-eight people, spouses and classmates were in attendance, and Anderson introduced the 29 class members who were present from that class. Tim and Ceal Craig presented, “Invasion of the Baby Boomers”, featuring video from 1947 to 1965.
