The Cabool High School Class of 1967 held their 40-year reunion Saturday, September 1. Thirty-two classmates and 19 guests met at 5:00 p.m. at Sunnyside Cafe for a time of food and fellowship. The Sunnyside served a delicious buffet, and the class enjoyed the cafe decor of 50's and 60's memorabilia with blue and white balloons and welcome posters provided by the class. Russell Lee was the master of ceremonies, conduction class business and providing reminders of class officers, 60's happenings, etc. The sound system was provided by Neil Hamilton. The class voted to provide a memorial brick at Alumni Park for each member deceased in the future or a donation of equal value if the member already has a brick. The class has already placed an order for five bricks and one donation for deceased classmates Doug Carroll, Gary Cox, Carla Davis, Don Loughridge, Ronnie Peabody and Dale Shaw. Name tags were made by Don Tottingham featuring pictures from the 1967 yearbook. A reunion photograph was taken by Barbara Bunch. Each class member present was given a booklet containing the current addresses and profiles of those who responded to the letter of inquiry. The reunion dismissed at 9:00 p.m. with many lingering to visit longer. Class members present were Amy Anderson Johnson, Anna, Illinois; Virginia Bloomer Kirkland, Mansfield; Ellen Baker Davis, Mtn.
