Keyes Prepares for 75th School Alumni Reunion

by Debbie Brown

The Keyes Alumni Association has finished making plans for its 75th reunion. This year's celebration will take place on May 26, 27, and 28. Our 75th anniversary year book has been sent to the printers and can be picked up at this time. We feel this book will be a keepsake your family will enjoy for years to come. If you have not yet purchased yours you may call Lorraine Conner at 546-7239. There is only a limited number available so don't wait.

Friday May 26th our festivities will begin at 6:30 p.m. with an Old Fashion Ice Cream & Cake social to be held in the school lunch room. At 7:30 we will have our business meeting and class recognition. This is when we will elect a new slate of officers and discuss changes to be made (if any) in the direction our association is going.

Saturday is a FULL day so get ready! Our registration is to start at 9 a.m. and will take place in the Keyes Senior Citizen Center. All are encouraged to register ~ it is very important that we have your current address for future letters. Sometime between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. you will want to stop by the IOOF Hall on the north end of Main Street as we will be hosting a Craft Show that is sure to have something for everyone.

Our alumni parade will begin at 10:30 on the south end of Main Street in the Post Office parking lot. We hope your class has started thinking of ideas for a float. Businesses are also encouraged to participate — the more the merrier. Following the parade there will be a BBQ lunch at the school cafeteria. This is to begin at 11:30 a.m. This year we will be giving away a Kodak Digital Camera w/ Print Station. Buying a ticket for the camera will be your admission for the lunch. At 2:00 p.m. our kiddie parade will begin, also on the south end of Main Street .

This year, we have hired “Beyond Your Imagination, Inc” to entertain us. Their first performance of the day will be a magic show featuring “Rick's World of Illusion”. This will begin at 3:30 p.m. , admission for this will be $ 1.00. Then, at 7:30 p.m. Dr. H. and company will have a hypnotist performance that is sure to amaze you. Admission for this show will be 12 and under free and age 13 to adult will be $5.00. Both of these events will be held at the school auditorium. Beyond Your Imagination, Inc. is from the Lubbock , Texas area and their company can be viewed at

On Sunday, May 28, beginning at 2 p.m. we will again be in the auditorium. First we will feature the Life Kids after school group to be followed by the music group, Joyful Noise. Both performances are reported to be very entertaining and up-lifting so you won't want to miss either of them.

The week-end promises to be full of fun, excitement and reminiscing with old friends; you won't want to miss it! If you have not yet done so, make your plans to be in Keyes May 26, 27, and 28. You won't want to miss a thing!
