The second Saturday of October is set aside each year to get together and strengthen the bonds formed so many years ago.

The class is grateful to First Presbyterian Church for use of Tartan Hall, a superb facility.

An active reunion committee, chaired by Evelyn Dean Hughes, is always searching for ways to encourage unity and fellowship while having fun at the reunions.

Program MC, George Brown, does a super job of maintaining order - old folks like to talk as much as they did when in high school. No one was tardy at the reunion; however, some were absent.

A total of 56, including 38 class members, attended. Edwin Nolen conducted a memorial service to remember the 30 deceased class members.

The 2012 Reunion will be held at Tartan Hall on the second Saturday of October. It will be a fun time to catch up on “what’s happening.
