UNION — A group of classmates who graduated more than 50 years ago continue to meet on a regular basis.
Three years ago, at the Union High School Class of 1961’s 50th class reunion, a group of friends decided they needed to see each other more often, and they began meeting regularly. The group tries to get together every few months in various locations and cities.
“It is so much fun and so good to know that you have all this support from longtime friends,” said Carol Creach, a 1961 UHS graduate.
Creach is the only member of the group who still resides in Union, and the group meets at her home during Christmas each year.
“Everyone has family buried here and likes to visit their hometown at Christmastime,” Creach said. “Many still have relatives and friends here also.”
The other ladies in the group currently live in Charlotte, Seneca, Simpsonville, Sumter, Columbia, Abbeville and Raleigh.
“We have all turned 70 in the last year and look forward to many more years together,” Creach said.
