A business meeting of the executive officers was held on Friday. The evening event was held at Fredrick’s Wine and Dine Restaurant with cocktails, food and live music.

On Saturday morning , the general meeting was held at the Marriot , revisiting the purpose of the association — to provide scholarships for our youth and to keep our legacy alive.
Saturday afternoon the group went to Jack Casino and South Park Mall.

The Saturday evening banquet dinner and dance was held at the Marriott. A proclamation from the city was presented to the association by councilman Blaine A. Griffin. Also recognized were Odell Carson (Chicago) and Odessa Carson (Cleveland), attending J.C. Price in the early days, and Betty Robinson Hopkins as being a student in the last class of J.C. Price.

Representatives were present from from each of the chapters: Atlanta, Charlotte, Ohio, Salisbury and Washington DC. Alumni are encouraged to join or start a chapter.
