The Miller County High School Class of 1954 held its 63rd class reunion Friday, April 14, 2017, at Moby Dick Restaurant in Colquitt.

A great time of fellowship, hugging, and reminiscing was enjoyed before the dinner was served.

Betty Jo Toole welcomed everyone and asked the Rev. Talmadge Worsley to bless the food.

After a delicious meal, the classmates and their guests enjoyed more fellowship and memories and were asked to tell something good that has happened since the last reunion. Lots of fellowship and joke telling were enjoyed by the group.

Plans for the 64th class reunion that will be held next year are already in motion.

Photos were displayed of all the classmates that are deceased. The class lost Beatrice Burke this past year.

Those attending the reunion were Gene and JoAnn Powell, Hoover, AL; Nell Miller Perry, Lynn Haven, FL; Robert (Ed) and Nancy Moody, Lake City; Marjorie and John Reeves, Cumming; Sue Parker and friend, Americus; Donald and Tootsie Kirksey, Bainbridge; Larry Cook, Port St. Joe, FL; Jeanette Jordan, Lautrella Joiner, Betty Smith, Dorothy Givens, India Taylor, Terry and Betty Jo Toole, Spud and Pat Bush, Billy Tabb, Harrell and Rejoyna Cobb, Elise Williams, Glen Tully, Ray and Georgia

Grimsley, Talmadge and Jewel Worsley, Bobby and Brenda Sheffield, Ronald Brownlee, Louie and Alma Jean Grimes, all of Colquitt.

Everyone is looking forward already to the 2018 reunion and hopes the ones that could not be here this year will be able to come next time.
