Taco Casa 50th Anniversary
Jangalang performs
Topeka KS - July 17, 2013
Taco Casa celebrated their 50th anniversary on July 17th, 2013. The line was REALLY long to order food. Taco Casa was a major hangout for many Roosevelt Junior High students, and therefore this was a pseudo Roosevelt Reunion as well.
In addition to long lines for food, it was REALLY hot! Jangalang, led by Roosevelt alumnus Terry McCart, setup in the parking lot across the street to entertain the crowd. Jangalang (l. to.r.) Garrett McCart (lead guitar, vocals); Terry McCart (keyboards, vocals); Sam Hopper (drums); and Dave Folger (bass guitar, vocals)
It cooled just a bit as the sun went down. My class at Roosevelt (Class of 1969), had tried to assist with a formal Roosevelt Reunion, but alas because of late date change, it was mostly impromptu. Three of my classmates in attendance were (l. to r.) Jim Edminston, Dean Foster, Jan Bracken Heinz. with Jan were her granddaughter and her husband Fred.
