The Class of 1958 Celebrates 55th Class Reunion

The Union High School Class of 1958 met on July 20, 2013, to celebrate their 55th Class Reunion at the home of Jim and Joy Allen in Sinks Grove who have hosted the past four reunions since 1998.

An afternoon and evening of fun, catch-up, laughter, games and a catered dinner were enjoyed by all.   No one was in any hurry to leave!

Those attending were:  Jim Allen and Joyce, Kyle Baker and Lorraine, Odell Bostic and Velma, Bill Crosier, Jim Ellison, Patty Leach Hancock and Henry, Hannah Porterfield Heath and Ray, Dean Long and Joyce, Mark Pence and Connie, Orr Scott, Jr. and Yvonne,  Wayman Pence and Patty, Phyllis O’Quinn Rose, Anna Pomphrey Firebaugh and Dale.   Several classmates unable to attend sent their best wishes.

Upon leaving that evening, a spouse commented. “You were a class who cared for each other”.    How fitting and true of this statement.   (Click on picture for a larger view).
