Calling all members of the GHS Class of 1968..
At the encouragement of Jim Lambert, I attended the Gassaway High School Alumni Association meeting last week. I’m not sure why, but for whatever reason, I have never participated with the group in the past. I quickly found out that they are a very dedicated bunch under the leadership of chairwoman Barbara Huffman. I later was told that until only recently they were not nearly as many participants as the ten or so that attended last Tuesday. As I looked around that room a lot of memories flashed through my mind. Those setting there were the same ones who were the worker bees of our school years. It was nice to see them in action again and remember some of the projects we worked on 50 years ago.
Each year the Association singles out a particular year of graduates and honors them. This year’s reunion will feature my graduating class of 1968 since we will be celebrating our 50th year since leaving good ole GHS.
The group manages a very extensive mailing list and attempts to keep the addresses up to date. Unfortunately, my classmates are largely missing in action. Of all the classes they showed me, many dating back in the 50’s and beyond, the list for 1968 contained the most blanks.
Our class has never had a reunion and again, I’m not sure why. Saturday, June 30, 2018 will be our first. So, here is your opportunity. This group will keep you informed about this and each year’s reunion if they have your address. I am hopeful that those of my class who read our paper will call, write or email me with your current contact information. Please don’t take for granted that we know where you are and have that information.
I must say I am getting a little excited about this opportunity. This year’s reunion is in the planning stages so ideas are also welcome. I hope all my class mates of 1968 will give me, either a call at: (304)765-5193; email me at: editor@bcn-news.com or write to me at: Post Office Box 516, Sutton, WV 26601. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
