On Friday July 29th we held what has become our traditional Golf Scramble at our hometown course - FIELDSTONE GOLF CLUB in AUBURN HILLS, MICHIGAN. Fieldstone is located on Taylor Rd off of Lapeer Rd (M24).
Golfers arrived at 11:00 a.m. with the first tee-off at Noon. Although rain was forecast, the day turned out to be sunny albiet slightly warm.
After golf, we all met on the clubhouse back patio for fellowship, food and drinks. Prizes were awarded for the winners in the golf scramble.
Another tradition is our Saturday night Dinner/Party. This time it was held at the RED OX TAVERN. It is located on the North (Westbound) side of Walton Boulevard across the street from Oakland University in AUBURN HILLS.
Included in the festivities were a buffet dinner, prizes including a 50/50 raffle, a Photo Booth, memorabilia provided by classmates and a special reprint of our high school yearbook.
The yearbook was made availble to be signed by those in attendance and given to Fudd (Pat McGuire) who was unable to attend the reunion due to major health concearns including complications from diabetes. Pat has always been a big part of our class activities and the Reunion Committee wanted to present Pat with a memento of our class
