"OHS'59 60th REUNION"


(From Joyce McCarty Greenlee, OHS'59, 4-10-19)

"Heads up! It is official. OHS Class of 1959 will have their 60th reunion in Odessa at the Elegante on September 21, 2019. We will also be meeting impromptu on September 20 at the Shrimpboat. Registration forms for the Saturday meetings will be forthcoming. I will also be talking to the Shrimpboat folks about Friday night. As in the past couple of years, the Friday night meal will not be a part of the "formal" reunion, but just as much fun. PLAN now to be a part. We never know when our last reunion will be. And we also know that the best laid plans of man don't always work out as planned. However, as one of our classmates has said, "If the good Lord's willing and the creek don't rise, I will be there!"
