The annual Kellwood reunion will be held Friday, June 9, at the Charlie Mackey Park in Maxwelton. It’s been 30 years since the Kellwood plant closed its doors for the last time in 1993. The covered dish meal will begin at 12 noon. Former employees, their families and friends are invited to attend. Plan to stay after the meal for socializing and taking pictures.
Greenville High School Reunion
The Greenville High School alumni will hold its reunion on Saturday, June 10, at James Monroe High School in Lindside. Over 200 people attended the reunion in 2017, the last prior to the Covid pandemic; and organizers are hopeful of achieving that number again. Although the high school’s doors officially closed in 1967, the school spirit and sense of community instilled in its graduates continue. GHS graduates have been contacted by letter, but anyone who would enjoy the fellowship is invited to attend. Staff; friends and families of Greenville students; spouses of deceased class members; those who were juniors, sophomores, and freshmen in 1967; and folks who attended Greenville Elementary and Junior High from 1967-1994 are all encouraged to attend. Again, everyone is welcome. The doors will open at 9:30 a.m. for those who want to arrive early and have an extended time for visiting. Lunch, catered by Gerry Phillips of Lindside, will be served at 1 p.m. at a cost of $17. Registration forms and money should be received by May 23. Checks should be made to Greenville High School Alumni and mailed to Greenville Alumni, P.O. Box 145, Greenville, WV 24945. Every effort has been made to be well prepared to welcome the hundreds who will attend and to reduce the time spent in line. To facilitate the registration, those who have not paid in advance will be directed to a separate line where fees can be paid and nametags can be made. The at-the-door registration fee will be $20. If you have any questions, you may call Rita Martin at 304-660-9459 or Donna Jackson at 304-753-4038.
