The Clark County High School class of 1948 had a lot of fun at its 50th reunion in 1998. So much fun, in fact, that they decided to extend the festivities.
Fourteen years later, the party is still going strong.
“We just are close friends, and we like to keep in touch,” Eunice Anderson Yarber said of the 60-member class.
Each month, 10 to 20 classmates meet at various restaurants in central Kentucky for lunch and reminiscing. At the most recent meeting at J.K.’s Cafe in downtown Winchester, 10 class members and a few spouses recalled everything from their senior trip to Cumberland Falls to the 1948 state high school basketball tournament.
“We’ve never been average. We’re not average people,” Betty Ratliff Smith said.
Although the majority of the class members attending live in Clark or a neighboring county, classmates now living out of state make it point to come whenever able. Larry Stone, now living in Lebanon, Tenn., has made an appearance at several lunches, and members of the 1946 and 1947 classes have been known to show up on occasion, too.
