Former students of Salisbury’s Price High School now living in Washington, Maryland, Ohio, North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia attended the winter meeting of the National Alumni organization.

Anthony Standifer was elected and installed as incoming president of the organization during the Dec. 1-3 event at the Doubletree Hotel in Arlington, Va.

Doris P. Jones presided over both the executive and general meetings.

Highlight of the weekend was a luncheon cruise on the Potomac River aboard the cruise ship Odyssey. The group danced to the music of the Chane Link Band. Soloist for the band is the daughter of Pricean Jim Thompson.

The meeting concluded with a dinner dance and after party in the revolving Sky Dome. A memorial tribute to Dr. Walter Jones was presented at the dinner. Priceans celebrating birthdays during the weekend were Catherine Ross, Doris Jones, Anthony Standifer, Marilyn and Theodore Coleman, I. Davis and Geraldine Coleman Wallace.
