Classmates from 1947 attend October reunion

The Hayesville High School multi-class reunion was held Oct. 7 at Truett Baptist Church in Hayesville. Ray Anderson and I were the only classmates from the class of 1947 in attendance.
The 1947 class had their first reunion in 1972 and they proceeded to have reunions every five years before it became an annual event. In 2009 only six classmates attended the 1947 reunion so the decision was made to discontinue it and attend the all-class reunions.
