50th High School Reunion

Dear Fellow Classmates of the Class of 1961:
It is time again for our 50th Class Reunion. The 50th Clay High School Class of 1961 Alumni Committee is asking you to submit a brief biographical submission for a Class Anthology that will be prepared and distributed at the Reunion on July 8th and 9th, 2011. There will be a get together at Butch and Roylene Pelphreys home at 35 Kenro Road, Minford, Ohio 45653 on July 8th starting at 5:00 p.m. until ??? Hope you can attend and catch up on everyone or discuss old times. Several of you have attended the 25th and 40th Class of 61 Reunions. Please try to attend this 50th. You can access a Website at we have put up to see some of the pictures that were taken then. I am sure you will recognize some of your former classmates!

The Clay High School Alumni Dinner will be the evening of July 9, 2011 at a site to be determined. Bob Rowe is attempting to line up a tour of the old Clay High School for Saturday afternoon. There are new schools being built and the old High School is to be torn down at some point in the future. The Class of 1961 will be the featured class at the Alumni Dinner.

Thanks for attending! We look forward to seeing you. If you are interested in being part of the planning, the next meeting will be at my office located at 631 7th Street, Portsmouth, Ohio 45662 on March 28, 2011 at 6:00 p.m.
