Published 10:11 pm Tuesday, August 6, 2013

In October 2012, a school reunion of classmates held a first school wide reunion/homecoming that was attended by hundreds.

It was voted to make this an annual event and plans have been made for a second Mill Spring High School reunion.

This reunion is scheduled for Oct. 12, 2013 from 2-4 p.m. at the old school building, which is now the Mill Spring Agricultural and Economic Development Center in Mill Spring.

Paper products will be furnished but organizers are requesting that all food be limited to finger type food, anything that could be eaten off a napkin. Guests are also asked to bring a drink of their choice; cups and ice will be provided.

“The first event was a wonderful day seeing people that we all grew up with, many of us attending Mill Spring school all 12 grades, reconnecting with our friends and bringing families together we had known all our lives,” said Sandra Tipton Nash. “This reunion was so well attended, we had graduates from the Class of 1942 through 1959. This provided us with a listing of attendees. However, we know many people were not registered and we would like to have contact information on them.”

A short program is planned and in addition to the potluck snack food, there will be music and several classmates to bring information about future plans.

Last year, several of the graduating classes had a dinner that evening to continue the celebration of seeing long time friends. Mark your calendars for Oct. 12 (Saturday). As final plans are put in place, additional information will be forthcoming.
