 Junior – Senior Reception
Dreamer's Holiday

Butterflies, cobwebs and yellow spiders and silver and red accents transformed the lattice covered walls of the Crestline High School Gymnasium into a “Dreamer's Holiday” Friday evening May 12, 1950. Adding to the settings charming allure, was the Lady in Black at the far east end of the gym, under a bower of magnolia blooms. Dancers whisked their partners across a floor embossed with the 1950-1951 under the magic colored lights that shown upon the floor.
The Grand March proceeded with Miss Kathleen Snyder on the arm of Senior Class President Conrad Vaughn and Miss Norma Urlich escorted by Martin Kemle Junior Class President. The Grand Entrance was made to the musical sylings of Nel's Blocker and Orchestra .
At 12:30 as the nights memories continued as the guests were treated to a formal dining atmosphere in the school cafeteria where they were seated at tables decorated in silver and rose accouterments. William Blum gave the invocation and a toast of welcome given by Martin Kemle. Barbara Kemle sang “Miracle” and “Let All My Life Be Music”. Senior Class President Conrad Vaughn responded to the toast and Marilyn Lambert and Don Kindinger presented a trumpet Duet. Eudora “Peachie” Morton gave a humorous reading of “The Waltz” L.L. Hill President of the Board of Education spoke on “Just Dreamin” and Mary Joanne Nolder closed the program by singing “If Love Were All” and a Dreamer's Holiday.
