At the reunion we ate, danced and caught up with old friends while pictures of us at Lamar and now appeared overhead.  Rob Burchfield did a great job on the slide show. We found out that:
  • Karen Stickler McWilliams came the longest distance to get to the reunion. She lives in Hawaii.
  • Martha Mortensen Middlebrook had been married the longest. She was given a bottle of champagne to celebrate.
  • Pat Payne McBee has been married the most times.
  • Wayne McLemore was the most recently married. He received a ball and chain as a prize.
  • Betty Bachmann Wilkerson has 13 grandchildren and certainly deserved the prize for the most grandchildren.
  • Barbara McNeir is an ordained Baptist minister.  She teaches a class for older women at South Main Baptist Church.
  • Caroline Ross Kirban was involved with a short film that received an Oscar nomination.  Her dad, Jim Ross, was interested in making movies also. He had expected to attend the reunion, but was taken ill suddenly and sent his youngest daughter (born in 1960) in his place.
  • Adrian Hovas Hudgens lost her dear cousin, Baroness Sandra Hovas DePortanova (Lamar '61), this year.
  • Bill Walker, Clothier has a new address, 1141-01 Uptown Park Boulevard, in the charming new Uptown Park adjacent to 610 and Post Oak Boulevard.
At the Saturday night party, Rob Burchfield and Judge Richard Hall gave us a rousing rendition of the Lamar Fight Song.  Rob played from memory.  That's pretty good for a man expecting his seventh grandchild.
