Members and Friends of Graham High Class of 78 - Join us from Noon to 4PM on Saturday, October 27, 2018 at Pavilion 1 at the Graham Recreational Park off 460 past West Graham for a pot luck picnic.
Troy and I are going to be in town visiting relatives that weekend and at the suggestion of Bill Kidd we’ve reserved a spot at the Park for any of you who can stop by and reminisce and try to figure out how 40 years sped by so fast!
8-28-18: Hey, this is Jackson. The Graham1978.com web site is back on-line. I've renewed our previous reunion page on MyEvent.com to support the upcoming gathering in Bluefield, VA for GHS Class of 1978 classmates and friends on Sat 15 Sep 2018. Here's the information from Todd:
"Members and Friends of Graham High Class of 78 - Join us from Noon to 4pm on Saturday, September 15, 2018 at Pavilion 1 at the Graham Recreational Park off 460 past West Graham for a pot luck picnic.
We know this is very short notice and strictly off the cuff! - it came about over the weekend after a spontaneous Facebook outburst!
If you can make it please bring a dish and drinks enough for yourself and a couple of others so we have enough to go around.
Classmates from other years that know us that are in the area, please feel free to join us with a pot luck dish!
Hope to see you there!"
