"The first class reunion meeting of Tuscaloosa High School, Class of 1956, was held at the Ramada Inn Downtown (ed note, old Stafford Hotel) on May 6, 1976 at the call of class member Billy West. Plans for a Class Reunion were discussed among much gossip and screaming and hollering. No chairman or committees were appointed, but various class members were discussed. A free donation was taken to help pay expenses and $60 was collected and given to Margaret Raiford Butler, who was to promptly open a checking account at 1st National Bank and promise bank officials that large amounts of money would continue to pass through said account. Class members agreed to meet again on May 13 at Sissy's house and she promised beer.
Twenty-four members were present, names as follows:
Joe Tanner Eugene Brittain Jean Harris Brittain Buck Burns Ronnie Henry Gay Lake Horace Hall Lewis Cook Bobby Shaffer Myra Culwell Koster Carolyn Jackson Maxine Faulkner Anne Barrett Moore Sophie Bell Stephens June Phares Shirley Margaret Raiford Butler Sissy Winslett Richardson Pay Mayers Lewis Sue Strickland Barnes Dixie Howell Mitchell Tuts Manderson Woollen Peggy Hartley SMalley Londa Bennett BeardenAfter agreeing to hunt down other class members and bring them to the next meeting, members voted to leave ALL AT ONCE, so no one would be talked about if they left first. The complete plans for reunion were discussed in the downstairs bar.
