2015 Old Dawgs Reunion - 3
10/10/15     Esther Sparks Powell  (1956)      bhpowell36@yahoo.com
Thanks to Kathy Mitchell Rice, today’s “Old Dawgs” annual reunion was another huge success. I was lucky enough to have been
drafted to sit at the “greeter’s” table along with Wayne Owens,and Lonnie Carter (both from class of ’63). For that reason, I was able to get a pretty complete list of those attending. Several people had someone accompanying them. When I don’t know if it was a spouse or friend, to be on the safe side, I’ll just list them as “guest.”
Class of ’53 - Bobby Draper and guest, and Jo Ann Zimmerman Frost
Class of ’54 - Merle Brigman Duffy, Lucy Tyson Lemons, Harrison Stoots and wife, Ruby.
Class of ’56 - Jim Brigman and wife Esther,(For some reason I can always remember
her name.) Harry Robertson and wife, Sarah, and yours truly, Esther Sparks Powell.
