Reunion Date: 2013-12-07
This planned event is for combined graduating classes 1963 thru 1967.
The dining hall at the old John Sevier Jr High has been rented and a donation jar will be present to help pay for the hall and decorations. Bring finger foods, soft drinks and any sweets you wish to share. We would also like to encourage you bring donations of canned food and cat or dog food to help local organizations that are in need of these items. There will be bingo and various games with nice prizes. We will have a variety of music ( sorry - no D.J. ). No need to put on the tux for this gathering. Dress comfortably. The Yadkin St entrance is the best way to reach the dining hall. We look forward to seeing those that can attend. One more item I need to mention. Please bring a wrapped Christmas ornament to be exchanged and PLEASE spend no more than $ 2.00 on the ornament.

I have created an "Informal Planning Session" for the Class of '78 on Saturday, July 14 at Chili's Restaurant at 11:30 am on Eastman Road. Please RSVP to me, *****

This date is the first Saturday of Fun Fest (Fun Fest runs July 13 thru 23) and I thought perhaps some of our out-of-town classmates might be home visiting during that time.

I have created this on the DB Alumni Site - if you aren't online there, you can create an account for free.

I believe you can get there thru this link:

Several people have expressed an interest in having a reunion, so I hope that someone will join me for an in-person meeting where we can make some concrete plans. :)

See you there!
