Friday, Jan. 27, found the Pittsfield High School Class of 1973 Class Luncheon at the Watts Up Restaurant in Nebo with 23 in attendance. Excellent crowd! Those who attended were: Andy Borrowman; Becky Ghrist; Bruce and Barb McKee; Cathy Bollegar; Carla Terpstra; Dwight Dyer; Fred Ruzich; Janet and Greg McKee; Jeanie Hartman; Joe Womble and Mary Breden; Kerri Dickerson; Marion Peters; Marvin Reel; Oren Borrowman; Patty and Tom Cawthon; Sharon and Gary Williams; Theresa Reel; and Tim Kremer. Everyone bowed their heads to remember those class mates that have passed on. And Fred Ruzich said grace before everyone enjoyed their delicious meal with excellent service. I sure hated missing this, but still not quite back up to 100% after having that virus.
I would like to say that we have all appreciated fellow local news columnist Nadine Kessinger for all the years she has written the Griggsville/Perry news. And with that being said, welcome to the new Griggsville/Perry columnist Jill Kunzeman.
