Franklin "Buddy" Sweat
passed away May 11, 2017 after a struggle with lung disease.

Buddy was a big part of the glue that held this class together for the past 50 or so years and he will be missed.

Franklin "Buddy" Sweat

Our 70th birthday celebration on June 24th was small in numbers but the ones that attended were greeted with a friendly atmosphere and treated to very good food and entertainment.

The main things missing were a couple of classmates Buddy Sweat and Judy (you know the one that only needs one name.) Judy and Fred were on a well-deserved extended vacation with their motorhome club. Without Buddy, who passed away May 11th, our gatherings may never be the same. Very few of you know that Buddy worked on all class events for the past 25 years and supported most of them financially.

I haven’t been sent a list of attendees or pictures so I’ll try to remember from my somewhat memory and post a few pictures I took with my phone.

I apologize if I missed anyone. I’ll update when I get the list.
I’m not sure who worked on the party but they did a great job.


The luncheon is the FIRST WEDNESDAY OF EACH MONTH at 11:00 am. Lunch buffet cost is $11.29 (don’t ask) inclusive of tea, tax and tip. Tea alone is $1. Water is free. Servers will handle the drinks.

Your hand will be stamped when you pay for lunch and we will be in the meeting rooms at the far end of the building. The Management seems very eager to please us so let’s give them the opportunity to do just that!
