Brunswick High class of 1969 holds reunion

August 08, 2009

The Brunswick High School class of 1969 held its 40th year class reunion June 27 at the Jefferson Ruritan Center.

Approximately 50 classmates joined in an evening of good food, good music and lots of laughter as they spent time reminiscing and "catching up."

For quite a few attending, it had indeed been a 40-year span since their last meeting, which resulted in many hugs, hearty handshakes and guessing games. Four faculty members also were in attendance and honored including Eugene Foltz, Carroll Horine, Samuel Huffer and George Littrell.

Upon arrival, class members and their guests were greeted by members of the reunion committee, who registered the attendees for door prizes and presented each with mementos of the evening. After an hour of mingling, members of the Jefferson Ruritan Club served a fried chicken and ham dinner. Following dinner, classmate Wayne Smith took the podium and regaled everyone with vivid memories of their days at BHS.

From 8 to 11 p.m., everyone was entertained and inspired to dance to the music of Plain Brown Wrapper. The dance culminated in a medley of old fire hall slow songs - sung by Wayne Smith in memory of Mike "Damion" Stup.

Throughout the event, door prizes were given to class members. Special thanks went to Pam Fawley Green for the beautiful baskets she created and donated.

The evening continued at Dutch's Dungeon, which was opened to the class members thanks to Joe and Eileen Gideon.

As the reunion was a great success, many classmates expressed a desire to assemble again in five years. The reunion committee, consisting of Pam Fawley Green, Shirley Hatcher Hale, Rae Haller, Imogene French Martin, Buzzy Proudfoot, Nona Riggan, Myrtle Gosnell Runkles and Wayne Runkles, received numerous expressions of gratitude from those in attendance.
