We had a good turn out for our class of 53 reunion # 65 at Bozo's in Mason. The Memphis contingent showed up in force and we were glad to see and talk old times with the crowd. Present were: David Hooper, Ray Dixon, Battle Shaw, Russell Hight, Leon Pattat, Carolyn Wright Watridge, Mary Kay Clark Roy, Franklin Wright, Joy Booth Curtis, and Bill Kendrick. There were wives present, so we had 21 in the crowd. It was decided that we should meet again next year, same time, same place with some additions, hopefully. Cards were sent to the addresses we had on file, with only a couple returned. We will find those addresses and let you know well in advance of the date and time next year for Meeting 66. Two corrections were noted on the listing of the living and deceased classmates. Deceased was Wayne Thomas. Removed from the deceased listing was Martha Nell Thomas Parker, who is presently living with a son in Union City at last report. We have several who are either in assisted living or nursing homes. Entering assisted living or confined at a nursing facility are at the present time are Jimmy Grantham, Joyce Cobb Maness, Margaret Ann Kelso Fletcher, and Susan Hart Foster. There may be others, but these were those reported at the gathering. Our listing left out several we had no knowledge of addresses. They were: Billie Doris McClish Christmas and Billie Littlejohn Campbell. We were able to locate these two addresses at the gathering. Any additions or corrections can be e-mailed to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll file them for next year.
