The Madison-Plains High School class of 1975 held its 40th class reunion from 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29, at the residence of John and Vicki Pendleton.
There was great weather and food as everyone gathered to discuss happenings of the past 40 years, as well as what the future holds. Conversations were flowing from farming, health and retirement, to the class author — Johnnie Alexander. And, of course, children and grandchildren were mentioned.
Classmates unable to attend were discussed and hopefully, they will be able to make the 45th reunion.
A moment was taken to remember those classmates who are no longer with us by releasing balloons in their honor. They are Steve Worley, Vera Kirk Spring, Larry Stroup, Tammy Brayfield Rapp, Mike Dorn, Camilla Stanford and Tom Dyer.
Everyone enjoyed the opportunity to get together and share many laughs.
