Eastland was a busy place this past weekend with the all school reunion being held with lots of activities all over the area. Food seemed to be a focus and was very plentiful. The class of 1954 had a good crowd for the Friday night meal in the home of Sammy and Joella Jones. It was a good happy time of fellowship.
Saturday morning the class gathered in the Woman’s Club building downtown for a day of visiting, sharing memories and enjoying another delicious meal with lots of great desserts.
The cookbook “Eastland High School Recipes From the class of 1954 and friends ” was available for a price. If anyone is interested in purchasing one of these cookbooks contact Sue Gourley Travis at 5507 Cedar Creek Drive Snyder Texas 79549 or call 325-573-8969.
There were almost fifty people present at these events. Twenty eight of those had attended the class of 1954 at some point in time. Others were family members and friends. Our current address list includes fifty four persons. Over fifty percent of those attended.
Attending were: Harold Armstrong, Shirley Freeman Bassett, Gene Bowles, Bob Cooper, June Davis, Mary Jo Jessie Fox, Joy Lynn Robinson Green, Pearson Grimes, George Harris, Marie Tucker Harvey, George and Margie Walton Hogan, Jim Huckabay, Joann Jackson Johnson, Robert Johnson, Sammy Jones, Don Jordan, Landon Jordan, Pat Linkenhoger, Sammy Miller, Wanda Harp Moore, Doris Bownds Pylant, Wanda Beck Skinner, Joyce Williams Thompson, Sue Gourley Travis, Esma Noble Tucker, Neil Van Green, Alan Vermillion, and Donald Webb. I am not listing all the others in attendance for fear of leaving off some of their names.
I hope your class meeting was as enjoyable as ours and that you have many precious memories and pictures to share for the days to come.
