Oct 15-16, Bee Branch, NC

Bob and Janet Hill are hosting a mini-reunion at Bee Branch, North Carolina, October 15-16. All class members are cordially invited to attend. It's fall, the weather invigorating and the colors beautiful, all of which make it worth planning a trip to attend.

The response has been fantastic. So far, the following have indicated they are attending: Bob & Janet Hill, Frank & Shellie (Wallace) Duncan, Don & Dolores (Dozier) Lester, Tommy & Kay (Jordan) Fussell, Ken & Bonnie Allen, Art & Betty Varnadore, Harry & Betty Griffen, Donald & Jo Ann (McKeithan) Serdynski, Ike & Charlene (Cronier) Powell, Charles & Rhona Nunez, and Janet (Trask) Heidtman.

The latest from Bob: "This is the largest and most notorious group we've ever had and I suspect it will be one of the most enjoyable ever. You never know what will happen when the above named derelicts get together. The Hill cabin will be bursting at the seams. Pray for good weather so we can enjoy the porches. I will have a tent set up on one of the decks (Janet and I are having a small disagreement about which place to set it up, however it will be whereever she decides I want it. Saturday, gather anytime from 10:30 on. We'll have lunch whenever we feel like it and have fun all the time. I've got plenty of firewood ready in case it gets cool so plan to stay into the evening if you can.

"Lunch is going to be a chicken dish that Janet and I will prepare along with some other dishes. Since there are so many coming from so far away they will not be able to prepare casseroles and such so Janet will be calling some you to ask for certain types of dishes. There will be about 20 people to feed and she'll coordinate with you. We'll have snacks and Tea, soft drinks and the like here. If you want beer or wine bring your favorite.

"On Sunday those who are not going back on Saturday night will get together for breakfast or brunch at a site undetermined at this time. Then there are several activities available one of the favorites is a picnic at Roaring Fork Falls(half mile hike in- no steep places and little elevation change.) This is a cascading falls and beautiful. The Blue Ridge parkway is nearby and should be beautiful. Obviously we can split up or we can other alternatives for Sunday but we do have some plans available. None of them require you to make any decision before you get here.

"At any rate we are excited about seeing everyone and look forward to a great time all weekend. Don't hesitate to call with questions or suggestions." — Bob Hill  (941) 769-5555.
