HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The 4th of July weekend is a time for many reunions in our area and one organization of former students in Hattiesburg is just about to wrap up a week's worth of reunion activities. The EURO organization, made up of students who attended the former Eureka, Royal Street and Rowan school system, is meeting in Hattiesburg for its 14th biennial reunion.

Hundreds of people from as far away as New Jersey and California have returned to the Hub City for many different activities. Saturday, dozens gathered for a picnic lunch at Hattiesburg  High School.

"It's wonderful," said Dorothy Bell Lucas of Hattiesburg, a graduate of the class of 1959. "You get to see people you haven't seen in a long time and you get a chance to learn what they have been doing," she said.

"It's great to see my old friends from many, many years ago," said Robert Jones, also of Hattiesburg and a member of the class of 1964. "They really look nice, healthy and looks like we're going to have a great time," he said.

"It's a great feeling to be home with my friends and see the camaraderie that we're into at this time, it's great," said Samuel L. King, of Austin, Texas, a graduate of the class of 1957.

Saturday night, EURO members will attend a ball at the Lake Terrace Convention Center and will conclude this year's reunion with an athletic breakfast Sunday morning.

And, at the next reunion in 2015, the organization will have a new name. It will be called EUROHA to include all students who attended Hattiesburg High School.
