report. The High School Alumni Dinner followed with a pig roast by Rob Hard accompanied with homemade side dishes and desserts from Rudder’s Deli. Birthdays were announced and celebrated while High School Alumni guests answered alumni trivia questions at each table.

Numerous door prizes were also given away toward the end of the evening. A highlight of the reunion was Rudy Cooks’ historian
video. Many High School Alumni from several decades told stories and shared memories from their school days on the island. The “Phantom Crusher” mystery was unraveled but not revealed…the evening concluded with more music from the Island Band while
high school alumni members said their goodbyes. Plan to attend next year’s annual reunion to welcome the class of 2014, celebrate
the honored 25 and 50-year graduates, and find out who the Phantom Crusher is!
