The WCHS Class of 1967 is speeding toward 60
years old, but they still know how to have a good time. The
baby boomers celebrated their 40th year reunion in Winchester on
July 7, but were not satisfied with only one commemoration.
On Friday night, they were hosted by their class president, Terry
Hunsucker, at his home on Franklin Street. After a mayoral
greeting by classmate, Steve Croyle, they were treated to a fully
catered event in a beautiful setting.
On Saturday afternoon, several foursomes of alumni could be found
at the Winchester Golf Course. Others were guests of Greg
Hahn at the Copper Creek Cattle Company on North Jackson Street
devouring Maid-Rites from Greenville, a huge draw for out-of-towners.
By Saturday evening a few were getting weary, but it did not keep
130 from attending an evening of fun at the Moose Lodge in
Winchester. A special tribute to the twenty classmates who
are no longer with us was solemnly expressed through a helium
balloon launch. Dinner, conversation, and dancing to the
Water Street band featuring classmate, Larry Gard, kept everyone
amused until long after old folks should be in bed.
That was still not enough, though. On Sunday morning, a
farewell brunch was provided at the Hunsucker residence.
Final hugs and laughter were shared with plans being promised for
the next reunion - before they get too old!
