    3-3-2011.... 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 Pelphrey’s 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.

    7-23-01....What a wonderful turn out we had at this year's reunion. We had 19 people show. I believe 4 or 5 of our classmates won prizes from tickets sold for the scholarship fund. The Scholarship donations were a success, and everyone had a Great Time! After the Reunion dinner, I, (Robert Cross), invited everyone over to my office, which was conviently located less than a block from the American Legion. I had on display the bios that were sent in (whether by e-mail or snail mail), as well as class pictures, Senior trip pictures, 25th reunion pictures, and beverages we are all still drinking. :) We would like to Thank Larry Grant for Donating A Year book to look through, as well as the Senior Class Pictures which may be posted sometime soon! Check out the 40th Reunion pictures now from the Picture page!
