The 20th Anniversary Celebration was held at the Saint Paul AthleticClub in downtown
St Paul, located at 340 Cedar Avenue between 3rd & 4th Street.
The Saint Paul Athletic Club closed its doors in 1991 but was reopened in 1998 as a
Health & Fitness club. The 13th & 14th floors were added in 1959, designed by
Ellerbe & Company. The Union Bank previously stood on this site.
The R-FACTOR (formerly Rupert's Night Club Band) performed with their amazing
12-piece band featuring male and female vocalists performing pieces from well-
known artists such as Smokey Robinson, Cher, The Neville Brothers, Celine Dion,
The Temptations, Louis Armstrong and Natalie Cole just to name a few.
