Remember This?

Hard to believe, but only a short 41 years ago (May 29, 1970) the Fox Tech Buffs Class of 1970 walked across the stage at the old Convention Center Arena located on the grounds of the 1968 HemisFair Worlds Fair. Of course, at the time that Convention Center Arena was a very new facility. Gone now and standing in its place is the Grand Hyatt Hotel.

The 40th Class Reunion Dance of The Fox Tech Class of 1970 was a blast from the past in spite of the record breaking temperature on the night of the dance which by the way was a chilling 32 degrees.   But, in spite of the cold weather it was a full house at Pueblo Hall on Friday, November 26, 2010. 
The Class of 1970 alumni and Techites from other classes warmed up quickly and danced the night away to the music of The Tribute Band.  The star of the show was none other than our very own classmate, Jesse Duarte, band member, class of 1970, who sang a solo (Long Train Runnin! - Big Hit by the Doobie Brothers), accompanied by The Tribute Band and knocked the audience right off their feet.
Alumni from the Class of 1970 not only came locally from San Antonio and the surrounding areas, but also from out of town.  Classmates came all the way from Austin, TX; Houston, TX;  Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX; Oklahoma City, OK; Tampa, FL; and Atlanta, GA, just to mention a few cities and states.   As mentioned in the Program, in the “Welcome” section, Techites have spread the Tech culture and the Tech pride throughout the USA.
The ballroom was elegantly decorated with the red satin tablecloths over white linen and the glass table decorations with their red and white colors.   The red  “40th”, 10 foot sign that displayed on the wall behind the band, with the white miniature lights, complimented the beautiful “Class of 1970” banner which was displayed on the stage.  By the way, I do hope you did notice the brand new banner as this was the very first time it was used.
A total of 60 alumni from the Class of 1970 posed for the panoramic photo which took place on the risers located outside of Pueblo Hall.  If you forgot to order a panoramic photo, but would like to do so, it is not too late.  Please see the Official “Reunion Dance Panoramic Photo”information above and order your panoramic photo today.
The committee members would like to give a special “thank you” to the sponsors who placed “ads” on the program.    But, most of all, the committee members would like to extend a  personal “thank you” to each one of the Class of 1970 alumni who attended, as well as  to other Techites and guests who supported the reunion dance.   Without your presence and support, this reunion dance would not have been possible.
