Reunion: Car Cruise

Here are some random images from the June 24th car cruise event at the Reunion of the Class of 1965.  More pictures will be posted in the coming days.

The surprise guest of the evening: Donna Camp was able to schedule a command performance appearance by the newly rediscovered and fixed Elam's Silverfross Root Beer sign. Donna adds: "We have Dan Brintlinger to thank for finding the sign and Steve Trebacz for buying it and restoring it."

Beautiful vintage cars abounded. And a couple new retro ones too.
Crowds of alumni gathered like cicadas outside...chattering away.
Talking and telling tales from high school.
Rick Livesay, Reunion Chair, was still hard at work during the car cruise.

Meanwhile, inside, late into the evening, more Mac folks visited with each other.

As the night stretched long beyond our bedtimes, the glow of the Elam's sign merged with the mumblings of MacArthur men and women, as the nighthawks flying above could be heard overhead. It was a perfect night in the Midwest.
