Dinner and dancing 
at Winthrop College

The 40th reunion of the Rock Hill High School Class of 1961was held on Friday and Saturday, May 4 and 5, 2001. The Planning Committee worked hard to try to contact everyone all over the country. The new Marriott Courtyard was the Class Reunion Host. 

Starting at 7:00 PM on Friday, May 4, classmates met for an informal drop-in  at the Marriott Courtyard. We all tried to meet and talk to everyone, but it's hard to bridge five, ten or even forty years in just two or three hours. 

On Saturday, May 5,  we enjoyed dinner and dancing at McBride Hall on the Winthrop University Campus starting at 7:00 PM. Members of the Girls Sextette, led by Judith Bazemore, made a rare appearance during the program. 

The Cheer Leaders Cheered,  the Majorettes twirled,  and the Band played!!  We may have grown older, but we had not lost our enthusiasm for having fun. We danced until Midnight to the music of Jimmy Conn and his band. We may need to have another Reunion soon.
