The group enjoyed sharing a scrumptious pot-luck dinner. Several brought old photos and every one had stories from the past to share. They all look forward to next year’s gathering, which will be held on the Sunday before Thanksgiving with the location to be determined at a later date.

Many thanks to Vivian Scales from this author for all the hard work to pull this reunion together and host it at her church.
