Floresville classmates of 1962 celebrate and remember
The Floresville High School class of 1962 was honored at the annual Over-Fifty Class Reunion Oct. 12. The reunion luncheon was held in the VFW in Poth and was attended by approximately 250 classmates from various graduating classes. The class of 1962 had approximately 50 attendees, who came from all over Texas to celebrate their 50th class reunion. The class extends their gratitude to members of the Over-Fifty classes for all the preparations and gracious hospitality extended to our class.
It was a significant event for our class members, especially since many of us had not seen one another for 50 years. It was a joyful time of reuniting and reminiscing about our high school years. Our class was one of the largest graduating classes in that time period and the attendance was evident.
A delicious turkey dinner with all the trimmings was served, and many memorable photographs were taken to add to school yearbooks. In reading through the information gathered on our classmates’ accomplishments, it is evident that our class has made a significant contribution to society in various occupations and as parents and grandparents. Congratulations!
The 1962 reunion continued the next day with several of the graduates riding in the Peanut Festival Parade. It was a time of fun, laughter, and memories of past parades. There is nothing like a hometown parade with friends and relatives cheering along the streets. We thank Richardson Chevrolet for lending us a complimentary truck to ride in the parade. We had a really smooth ride.
The reunion was a successful event for our class and it was heartwarming to see everyone having a memorable time. We were blessed to have this special time to share with one another as friends and classmates.
A special thanks to our classmates for attending and celebrating a special event in our lives. Our thanks extend to the 1962 Class Reunion Committee for all the preparations and correspondence in reaching the members of the FHS class of 1962. It was truly a fun-filled visit with everyone. We missed those who were unable to attend and invite everyone to join us for future reunions. We look forward to seeing and visiting with everyone.
