Sessions School alum to gather Saturday

A Sessions School Reunion is planned for Saturday, Nov. 1 and all of those who attended the old school are invited to step back in time for a little while and share their memories of the good ol’ days.

Gail Jordan said most everyone who attended Sessions School has a soft spot in his or her heart for the old school that has been void of the laughter and learning of little children for many years.

The reunion will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday at nearby Williams Memorial Presbyterian Church on the Needmore Road.

“We’ll have a short welcoming program and then break up into groups for a time of sharing,” Jordan said. “We’ll start with the those who were members of the earliest classes in attendance. They’ll just gather sit around on the pews at the front of the church at share stories about their days at Sessions School.”

Each group of “schoolmates” will have a “show and tell” session and everyone is encouraged to bring photographs and other memorabilia that would be of interest to others.

“We’ll have lunch at the school for a small donation,” Jordan said. “Or, if there are those who would rather bring a dessert than make a donation, that will be fine, too. We just want everyone to come and have a good time together as we look back on our days at Sessions School.”

Jordan said Saturday is not too late to make plans to attend the Sessions School Reunion.

“It would be helpful for those who are preparing the lunch to have some idea as to how many will attended but we don’t want anyone to stay away because they haven’t let us know,” Jordan said. “Everyone is invited and we hope to have a good crowd. There are still a lot of us around and this will be a great opportunity for us to get together.”

Those who want to put their “names in the pot” may do so by calling Shirley Brabham, 566-3216; Linda Floyd, 243-5450 and Gail Jordan, 566-6035.
