This site is provided by Connie Stafford Van Horn, FUHS '53. If you have photos to share, please contact me at CVanHorn@comcast.net.
You can capture any picture that you want by RIGHT-clicking on the picture and saving it on your hardware. If anything happens to me (and I think I'm lucky to have lasted this long), this site will be gone.
Donna Butler snaps Shirley McFarland Tardie, Roger Butler and me, Connie Stafford Van Horn as we girls arrive at the luncheon. (Donna has become the unofficial class photographer and we thank her.)
We got Roger to take a picture of Donna (who rarely gets her picture taken) with me and Anita Mills Johnson.
I finally get my camera out and get a rare picture of Donna and Roger Butler together.
Donna gets several pictures of people arriving that I didn't get in the main room later. (I learned that it is easier to get someone's picture as he walks in the door than it is when we all go into the main room and run around.)
Connie, Anita Mills Johnson, Lois Putman Givens

Donna likes to always get a shot of "The Stafford Girls".

I took most of the pictures inside the main room so don't blame Donna. If I didn't get a picture of you, please send me one to include.

If you go to one of these banquets, the food is delicious, but guard your plate. While we were gone from our table to get this picture taken, the waiters took Dick's cake and almost my entire dinner (because I am a very slow eater).
