30 year High School Reunion

Has it really been 30 years since we graduated from High School?

We advertised on Facebook and invited any classmates that attended Chester County High School with the class of 83' to come celebrate with us. The reunion was held at Miss Ollie's in Jackson, TN. There was a definite 80s theme, and we had a really good turnout- over 70 people.

Stacy, our class president is still taking care of our class, even after 30 years. Stacy did a great job of organizing the reunion. John McCaskill led us in a wonderful prayer to kick off the evening. We then spent many hours reconnecting, eating delicious food and enjoying music that spanned the 80s-today. We paused mid way through the night to honor those classmates who served in the military, and also to remember those classmates in prayer who are no longer with us. Michael Phelps led such a heart-felt prayer, I wish I could recreate his words for my blog.

It was said more than once during the evening, that we grew up with some of the best people in the world and that statement is true. Maybe it's because we are all small town people at heart, or maybe it was special town, but my classmates have lots of heart and soul and I am always honored to spend time with them.   

I should have stopped and taken more pictures, but I was having too much fun! Amber grabbed my phone at one point and snapped these. Hopefully our professional photographer got photos of everyone there.
