About to parade to downtown Big Spring.
Thanks to Roy and Joy (Williams) Hester for providing the truck, trailer, signs chairs and enthusiasm.

Our rolling yacht at closer range.

Joy has been off picking a bouquet of balloons.

We are ready.  What is holding up the deal?

One of many cars in the parade worth photographing. 
Trouble is, we were on the trailer with our cameras, and didn't get to photograph them.

Nila (Bailey) Allen snaps us while we snap her. Janice has found her too.

The 1955 bunch is having their 50th. 
The 50th  is always the biggest attendance any class ever has.

Crossing Fourth Street on Scurry, looking North.

Gay Nell (Lane) Harper (54) is in the red top with her camera.

Just South of Fourth, with the First United Methodist Church at left.

We are up to 8th Street.

That is our trailer at left, and the two classes have time for a short visit.
This is the Fourteenth and Main Church of Christ, the beginning and ending point of our parade.

The Steers are wearing black and gold again, after several years of mostly black and white.

Lousy photography, but I left it in to give you the ideas that we attended the game.

Several pictures below were taken at Howard College Fireplace Room after the game.  The Class of 1955 made up most of the crowd.
