A lighted welcome poster in school colors of purple and gold with a faded mascot painting for background greeted attendees.

A memorabilia table and table centerpieces held classmates' graduation pictures; an oversized heart-shaped wreath covered with flowers as a remembrance of departed classmates; a cake with a 1969 class and mascot picture. Flanking the cake were candlestick arrangements of fresh purple and gold flowers and greenery.
