Jim Yee and Armando Brown
On our way to my sister Pat's 1965 50th Class Reunion in front of Doheny Library, Trojan Candy saw another friend. Professional photographer Armando Brown (1/23/2009). He posed with Jim. I have known Armando since Matt Barkley was a Freshman.
Dudley and Pat Poon
We finally met Pat and Dudley inside the 50th Class Reunion area.
Rita Evans, Mary Ann Cogbill, Susan Swenson and Patricia Millus
At a nearby table were two TGLA members who were also in the Class of 1965. Rita Evans and Mary Ann Cogbill posed with sorority sisters Susan Swenson and Patricia Millus.

The food and especially the desserts were very delicious.

As we left the tailgate, I took this picture of Pat and Dudley under the commemorative class flag. Congratulations, Pat, and FIGHT ON!
