It was fun to go back in time and visit with friends from high school days to reminisce on days gone by and the fun they had at Neshoba High.  Neshoba Central High School Class of 1978 held its 40th class reunion on the weekend of October 19th-20th.  

The Rockets homecoming football game was on Friday, October 19th, and many of the class members attended the game.  They had a good time watching the halftime festivities.  On Saturday evening a banquet - reunion party was held at the "Venue at the Park".  The dinner was prepared by the local Shriners' Club and music was provided by a DJ.  There were 115 members of the class who attended.  The classmate who traveled the longest distance was Barbara Love who came all of the way from Arizona!  According to one person who attended, "We had a blast!"

Lunch in Paris at a sidewalk café under a sunny sky and red umbrellas shading the tables was a dream come true for Yvonne Smith, Jan Hillman, Melody Webb, and her daughter, Emma Webb, recently.  The foursome traveled to Paris from London for a visit to this amazing city.  They also attended a show at the famous Moulin Rouge (Red Mill) nightclub where they enjoyed music and a show.

London was the first stop on their trip where they were fascinated by the city and its fabulous sights.  Their destination was London, but while they were so close, they took a side trip to Paris.  After all, when there is an opportunity to explore another iconic city, why not take advantage of it!  Yvonne Smith is Jan and Melody's mother and Emma's grandmother.  What a fun girls' trip!

Members of the Goodway Baptist Church enjoyed their annual picnic at Northside Park on Sunday, October 21st.  The Reverend Willie Rush, Pastor, gave the blessing for the enormous variety of food that was placed on the serving tables. The food committee did a great job of organizing the food and setting the tables.  The meal was served buffet style with each person selecting favorites from the many choices.  It is an event that the congregation enjoys each year.

A bridal shower brunch honoring Libby DeWeese was held on Saturday morning, October 20, in the beautiful home of Brenda Mills.  Hostesses for the come and go event were longtime friends of the DeWeese family in Philadelphia.

The long front porch was the perfect spot for serving brunch type drinks to the guests when they arrived. Libby and her mother, Bettye DeWeese, greeted guests as they came. It was a lovely morning to visit on the front porch!

.  Inside the house, a variety of delicious dishes was served from the long dining table which was covered by a white cloth and centered with a gorgeous arrangement of white flowers massed together in a tall vase. After making their selections, they went into the delightful sunroom to sit and taste.  Lots of chatter and laughter could be heard as everyone enjoyed visiting throughout the central area of the house.  Carefully wrapped gifts with colorful bows were waiting to be opened by the excited honoree.  Everyone came to wish Libby happiness.  A special guest was Libby's future mother-in-law, Terry Cooper.  

Libby and Cameron Cooper will be married at the historic Holy Cross Catholic Church in Philadelphia on December 1, 2018.
