We had a great family reunion that year! It was the first time held at the expo center and we had plenty of room and a fully equipped kitchen. The expo center is located a good piece off the highway so we didn't have to worry about the kids getting too close to the road and they had ample room to play outdoors. I credit Elton & Helen Simmons for their generosity in paying for the rental of the center.
Attending from out of state were Elton & Helen Simmons, his daughters Mary Ellen, Sarah Jean and Susie Ann and their families and Tony & Dena Powell.
Attending from out of town were Gertie & James Wiginton, their son Matthew and his family, Crissy & Ryan Curry and Elaine Herrin Knight.
