Achieving a Milestone — Seniors Spring Banquet

Song, dance, food and fun filled the University Club, May 14, when the DBA and the Seniors Spring Banquet honored 19 attorneys who were admitted to the Bar in 1959. Jim Bayer, chair of the Seniors Committee, passed the torch to Don McMichael, who officially assumed chair duties at the event. Bayer was chair for the last six years.
