Class Reunion Announcement Class Reunion Announcement
LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from R. H. Watkins class reunion committee.

The R. H. Watkins High School classes of 1975, 1976 and 1977 are planning a combined reunion for Friday and Saturday, July 17-18, in Laurel.

This summer marks the 40th anniversary of the Class of 1975. For years, a group of friends from this class and the Classes of 1976 and 1977 have discussed holding a combined reunion to celebrate the friendships that were made during that time.

Representatives from all three classes have formed a reunion committee and are working on an event that pays homage to their great experiences at Laurel High School.

Planned events thus far include a Friday evening gathering at the Laurel Country Club from 7-11 p.m. with heavy hors d'oeuvres, 1970s music, a dance floor and lots of room for catching up. A cash bar will be provided.

On Saturday evening, the group plans to attend the annual Jagged Edj concert at the Ramada Inn and Conference Center on Sawmill Road in Laurel. Members of the Jagged Edj include John Helveston, Johnny Hozey, Byron Greco, Doug Bush and Wilson DeWitt. These guys formed Jagged Edj while they were students at Stewart M. Jones Junior High School. Years later, they held a reunion concert in July and have not missed a summer since.

Other optional events may be added in the near future.

The cost for the weekend is $50 per person, $100 per couple. Personal checks and money orders are accepted. These may be mailed to R. H. Watkins Reunion, P. O. Box 2041, Laurel, MS 39442.

PayPal payments (paypal.com) are also accepted. The account is listed as rhwatkinsreunion@gmail.com. Click “Send” in the heading and enter $52 per single and $104 per couple.

The Finance Committee will contact participants when payment has been received. The deadline for payment is June 15.

The Classes of 1975, 1976 and 1977 would also like to invite all of our former teachers to join us for the festivities free of charge. Just contact the committee at the mailing address or email address to let them know you plan to attend.

The reunion also has a Facebook page, R. H. Watkins High School Classes of '75, '76 & '77 Reunion. For more information, contact the committee at the email address listed above or on the Facebook page.
