Many of the memories fade so I thought that I might go over the arrangements in order to jog our memories for future
I believe some of the men played golf once again on Friday, then we went to Sheba's Restaurant for dinner of our choice. On
Saturday, we met at University of Arkansas at Hope. Before the dinner hour of catfish, chicken and all the trimmings, we met
for a tour of Hempstead Hall. After both events a few night owls gathered at Super 8's lobby for a time of catching up on the
news, more visiting and lots of hearty laughter. Classmates numbered about 25 on Friday and 34 on Saturday.
All seemed to enjoy the lovely venue at UACCH It was very comfortable and most enjoyed it so much that I have scheduled
both Friday and Saturday, March 13 and 14 of 2015 at that location.
It’s always a great occasion to meet with folks who accept the adopted members so graciously. Until we meet once again, I
pray you will be blessed. Barbara Cox
MEMORIES OF HHS CLASS OF 1953 REUNION
March 14-15, 2014, in Hope
Mary Jo Fincher
I can say I was very impressed with the college & Hempstead Hall, a wonderful thing for Hope to have. Barbara Cox did a
wonderful job planning & instigating the whole reunion. Betty Willis did a fine job with invitations, notifications, & making people
feel welcome. Once again our friends & class members who live in Hope made us feel very welcome.
Trip to Washington for lunch but rain kept us from visiting the festival.
Many of us visited family & friends @ the cemeteries to pay our respects.
There is a warmth of friendship in class of 1953 that one can feel just in the presences of the members & spouses.
This was my experience, MJ
