Connie Epps Bond spent a lot of time locating, scanning and identifying pictures for the Program and for displays.   The program was dedicated to Connie who did a great job.

The meal was catered by A Bo Kay by JoAnn – owned by OCHS Class of 1956 graduate, JoAnn Middlebrooks Morgan who has catered many of the Alumni Banquets in recent years.   They do a great job and the food is great.

The Roll Call of classes recognized attendees from as early as 1938 with Myrtice Kilpatrick through 2007, Trey Harden.   The Roll Call is always a favorite because the individual classes stand and afford an opportunity for the audience to locate old friends.
