AHS Class of 1969 30th Reunion

Over eighty class mates and guests from the AHS Class of 1969 gathered at the home of Tom and Alice Dunnavant, Saturday July 24th,1999 for an old fashioned backyard bar-b-que. Despite the heat, a fun time was had by all who attended from as far away as East Lansing, Michigan, Little Rock and Hot Springs, Arkansas, Valdosta, Ga., Indianapolis, In., St. Louis, Mo. and Mobile as well as points in between.

The back yard was decorated with festive tents, draped tables, luminary centerpieces and tikki torches. In an attempt to help beat the heat, the air-conditioned garage had been transformed into a replica of the old High School's athletic dressing room complete with pictures of classmates who participated in football, basketball, tennis, cheerleading and majorettes. More luminaries helped set the mood.

The festivities were kicked off by master of ceremonies State Court of Criminal Appeals Judge and former Limestone County District Attorney the honorable Judge James (Jimmy) H. Fry who welcome the attendees and offered a tribute to six deceased classmates. Those being Mike Wilburn, Patsy Patterson, Joe Wood, Ann Hess, Jimmy Oran and Reggie Britt.

Joe Warren, currently of Ozark brought an edited video that included the Athens Golden Eagles' 1969 football highlights as well as a special tribute to fallen team member, Mike Wilburn. Wilburn was the mainstay of the AHS running game for three years winning many local and state grid iron honors. He later attended UNA where he played college ball and set many school and conference records, some of which still stand today.

Classmates joined together in the songs of the era. Formally forgotten tapes of local bands like the Intruders, the Highwaymen, the Esquires and the Impala's were played as classmates shared memories and renewed friendships. For a few fleeting hours, the Athens High School Class of 1969 relived many cherished memories of school days gone by.

Among those in attendance were: Tom and Alice Dunnavant, Richard Booth, Betty Burroughs Covington, Tim and Melia Collier, Diane Davis Borden and husband Steve, Jesse and Beth Evans, the Honorable Judge Jimmy Fry and wife Penny, Dona French Townsend, Lester Gassaway, Doug and Betsy Gates, Larry Grigsby, Oliver Harris, Billy and Jan Hargrove, Nancy Hendrix Johnson and husband Bobby, Sandy and Terrie Jacobs, David and Sally Marks, Sam and Alice King, Don and Lejean Kennemer,Beverly Braden Holt and husband Jerry, Bill and Lesa Minton, Bill and Kathy Nelson, Kay Osterheld Davis and husband Jerry, Eve Pendleton Scharder, Steve Putman, Greg Rich and Vanessa Girado, Ray and Jennifer Smith, Greg Taylor and Martha McBay, Pat and Venelia Turner, Joe and Pat Warren, Janice Whitt Roberts, Paul and Cheryl Wilson, Debbie Jackson Davis and husband Jerry, Harold and Martha Woodfin, Lou Keyes and Calvin Covington, Bill Swindell, Kay Young and George Woolwine.

The class wishes to thank Sheriff Mike Blakely, the Houston Library, Fowler's Rentals and Whitt's Bar-B-Que. for their help and assistance in making the event a successful one.

Pictures of Reuions as well as current names, addresses, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses of our classmates will be posted on this site as they become available.

Future Reunion Information...

I have talked to the management of the new country club in Athens, Alabama: Canebrake at Piney Creek, about having an annual event for all former Athens High School classes. The event would most logically be held every Homecomming weekend saturday night with a band/dj as well as a golf scramble earlier in the day Saturday or Sunday morning/afternoon. If an event was initally sponsored by the classes of 1965 thru 1975, we could most likely turn over subsequent years to the club and a committee of our peers.

The great thing is that after two or three years, homecomming might begin to mean something to us all again. Not just a game, but a time to come home and be with our former classmates. A time when you could plan on being with those kindred sprits that walked thur the early years with you. And, if other classes want to have additional events, those events could be held anytime they wished or the Friday before homecomming.

If anyone has any interest in pursueing an event of this nature, please contact me with your address, telephone and email and plan on joining a committtee to get this past just the idea stage. Together, we can accomplish much!
