The Auburn Alumni Game held Thursday was a big hit. Lots of soreness the following day but a lot of fun for everyone. Thanks to all who participated.
It was 50 years ago when the class of 1965 left Auburn High School to conquer the world! It was Saturday night, October 10th when they reunited for this special year. They invited the class of 1966 to join them at Auburn Baptist Church in the Fellowship Hall with for a potluck meal and reminiscing. Members of the 1965 grads who attended were Betty (Patrick) and Terry Thomas, JoAnn (Ferrell) and Joe Francis, Paulette (Crook) and James Marshall Gilley, Jimmy Mingle and Millie King, and Bobby and Nelda Pitts. Those from 1966 were J.C and Joan Hughes, Joann (Jones) and Wendall Tate, Jann (Kennedy) Jones, Lynn and Kathy O'neal and Janice (Vance) and Charles Ritchey. Of course, it's not a real school reunion without Mrs. Bess Finley who came with her son, Mac.
Their hearts were heavy due to loosing another one of their classmates on Friday. Our thoughts and prayers to Dwight Saddler, Eric and Jared Saddler on the sudden loss of wife and mother, Katherine Saddler.
