GHS Red Devils Multi-Class Reunion 2012
Kinston, Thursday, March 15, 2012
The second reunion of all Grainger High School alumni began on Thursday evening, March 15, 2012. The cocktail hour event was once again held at Grainger Hill, the auditorium we used for assemblies when we were in school. We had a smaller turnout this year (125 people), but Barbara Noble Smith ('57) and Mary Ellison Strother Turner ('62) still consider the evening a success. Grainger Hill made a small profit from the event. There was no program this year, no speakers or music. Still, we had a lovely evening, renewing old friendships and getting reacquainted. The food was very good (catered by The Folded Napkin).

Morehead City, Friday, March 16, 2012, and Saturday, March 17, 2012
Our coastal events took place at The Elks Lodge in Morehead City, the same place we met in 2010. This year, we did not have speakers or professional entertainment, but, fortunately, two GHS alumni volunteered their talents as DJ's. Friday night, Don Baker, and Saturday night, Doug Lyon, played great dance tunes. We have some good dancers among our GHS alumni! On Friday night, 147 people attended, and Saturday night we had 214. The numbers were a bit smaller this year, but the enthusiasm was high.

Saturday lunch, March 17
Saturday at noon, many GHS alumni met at Tony's (Sanitary Seafood Market) for a great seafood lunch. This was a great addition to the weekend, and the weather was absolutely perfect!
Thanks again to Doug Bolt who once again took wonderful pictures of all the above events.

Special thanks to Everette Cameron ('61) who did so much work to make this reunion a great success. Len Smith ('58) and Charles Lewis ('58) did their share, too. Jane McLawhorn Cameron ('65) was in charge of decorations, with help from Laverne Page Mozingo ('63). Events like these do not just happen. We are so fortunate to have people who are willing to put in a lot of time so that we Red Devils can enjoy each other's company from time to time.
