Debby, Bonnie and Kaye in Hanover

The high school reunion was on Friday night at the Hanover Country Club. So many people who were not in the reunion class wanted to see the group that a show was held at the Elks Lodge on  Saturday night. After not having sung for 27 years, and with little rehearsal, the girls performed 56 songs in four 45-minute sets that evening.  .

In 1991, the Hanover High School Class of 1966, of which Bonnie and Debby were members,  was planning a 25th reunion.  Kaye and Midge were two years older, in the class of 1964.  The reunion committee asked Bonnie and Debby to find the other two Pixies and ask them if they would perform at the reunion.  They found Kaye in Virginia Beach, Virginia, but were unable to locate Midge.  So the First Reunion of The Pixies Three was at the Hanover Country Club in the fall of 1991, with Debby, Bonnie and Kaye.
