A Dinner To Die For

Posted by Gary Schlee on November 30, 2007

Dinner To Die ForIt’s the Class of ’85 Reunion at James D. Murder High School and someone gets killed. But who did it? Actually, it was someone in the class reunion photo.

The murder mystery evening is just one of a half-dozen events organized by students in the Event Management course. Still to come is a gay speed dating event this evening and the Frame Film Festival on December 6.

Many of the events are designed to raise money for local charities. Photo by Colin Burwell.
