Elvis also attended our 50th Reunion.
After the dinner and while Brooks was making his Speech to the class …
Buddy suddenly started playing some Elvis music.
Brooks could be seen having some “words” with Buddy …
Probably something like “That’s not on the schedule” … or ... “What are you doing ?”
But Buddy just smiled at Brooks, and kept playing Elvis music.
The class had secretly collected donations for a gift for Brooks to show our appreciation
For all his work over the years and his efforts to hold the class together.
Since Brooks had impersonated Elvis in High School, and Elvis is his Idol,
Brooks had no idea that Norm Delph was going to impersonate Elvis to make this Presentation.
Everybody was really surprised when Elvis entered.
Among the items Elvis presented to Brooks, from the Class,
was a very large “We Love you Brooks” Card …. An Anderson High School throw …
And a Red‘58 Chevy Convertible that Brooks always wanted.
Never knew that Elvis had a sense of humor, but he had us laughing till our sides hurt.
Brooks was told that a Jukebox was borrowed for a nostalgia display.
This was a new Crosley Jukebox with Radio and a 10 CD changer built in.
It had set there Friday and Saturday blowing bubbles and playing Oldies music.
Brooks was seen to look at (and drool over) the Jukebox a couple of times.
But this was a “Hide in Plain Sight” cover story.
By the way, Brooks …. I almost forgot ….
The Jukebox is also YOURS
Sorry we made you cry Brooks … But you’ve earned it.
With Much Love, from the AHS class of ‘58
