Last October 2015, the Class of 1965 held its 50th reunion. On Saturday, October 10th, 2015, the class took a school bus tour around Okemos and ended up at their "old" High School, now known as Chippewa. The school had changed a lot since 1965...we did not have an auditorium, but we had Musicals! In a suprise addition to the tour and in comemoration of the part that our class played in the tradition of Musicals at Okemos, the 7th grade star of the upcoming musical, Annie, performed selections from the show. Olivia has a beautiful voice that sang out several nostalgic tunes that made us feel proud to be part of the tradition. Several people asked how the show went, but alas, the show was not recorded because of copyright restrictions. Undeterred,I collected all the photo's during and after the performance and took Olivia to a recording studio and created this video. Rod Ellis
