Joe Hodson then offered the invocation before the meal which was served by J & D Catering. He also thanked Teresa Leisure, Julie Leisure and Brooke Leisure for helping carry food and drinks for those who needed a little extra help.

After the meal, president Joe recognized our Veterans. As the music from each branch of the armed services was played, the veterans stood. We are always amazed at how many have served our country.

Before the minutes were read, Jane Hallgarth read a poem, “The Reunion,” by Elizabeth Lucas which was very appropriate for our time in life. The minutes were approved and the treasurer’s report was printed on the back of the program.

He then began the calling the roll, first with the honor classes. The 50 year class - 1963 had a total of 5 present: Joy Hall McCauley, Joy Reddick Morgan, Mark Chance, John Hall and Joe Hodson. They had 13 who graduated and have lost 4 members, so over half their class was present. Of the ones reporting, they have 18 grandchildren and six great grandchildren. 60 year class – 1953, had 5 members present – Doris Duke, June Ging Ferguson, Roman Hood, Bob Morgan and Lowell Wilson. They have six living classmates and would have all been present but Charlene Ryan’s airplane was late getting in and she missed the event. The 70 year class of 1943, had two members present: Mary Ann Ayres Gray and Hayden King. Their one other living member, Lois Brooks Berryman from Florida was unable to attend. It was mentioned that the 80 year class has one living member, and she is our oldest living graduate – Inez Apple Wood from New Castle and she was unable to attend.
