FOCUS: Buckhannon Upshur Class of 1962 – 60th Reunion

The B-U Class of ‘62 held their 60th Class Reunion on September 16 and 17. The first evening was held at one of the shelters in the North Buckhannon Park and the second evening was held at the Peak. Our Friday picnic was catered by Morgan and Bethany Ware. Fish Hawk Acres catered the Saturday evening dinner. The weather was very nice and the food was very tasty with both dinners. Sixty attended the reunion with classmates and spouses and guests. Quite a few items were donated or hand made for a silent auction and door prizes. The most important part of both evenings was the visiting of all who attended. A great time was held by all. Each class member was sent and invitation. If you did not receive a letter, contact one of the committee members with your name and address.

The only sad part of our class reunions are the missing classmates who are deceased. The class of 62 has now lost 89 members who shared our classes and were our friends. “Some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts and we are never the same. The good times between friends may be a thing of the past; however, the memories are indispensable. Your lights will always shine in our hearts.”

The reunion committee would like to thank all of the classmates who donated items for the silent auction and the door prizes. Some items were hand crafted and we appreciate your talent and support of sharing your talents with your classmates. We thank Bob Waggy for the hand-crafted pens he made for each classmate.

We met together, reflected on the past and enjoyed the special time we shared together. We thank you for attending and we hope you enjoyed this time together. Those attending voted to meet again for our 65th Reunion in 2027. We do gather at various restaurants at 1 p.m. on the second Thursday of most months. We will gather at the Daily Grind at 1 p.m. Thursday, November 10 for lunch. You are invited to attend.

The Reunion Committee consist of Larry Alkire, Charlotte and Kenny Davidson, Lenora Hawkins Gifford, Wilma Jean Tenney, Connie Bailey Gregory, Bill Hicks, Carol Hinkle, Marie Simons Light, Carol Liston Long, Gary McCord, Bob Ours, George Smith, Bob Waggy, Donna Warner White, David Allen Wilson and Roger Woody.
