The 1967 graduating class of Pepperell High School celebrated its 50 year class reunion Sept. 15-16. On Sept. 15, classmates enjoyed a tour of the new high school and were introduced at the following football game. The class met at the Christian Life Center of the First Baptist Church of Lindale on Sept. 16, to reminisce about school days long past, honor veterans and enjoy a dinner together. Round tables were covered with black tablecloths and were decorated with candle centerpieces surrounded by magnolia leaves. Individual candles were lit for the 31 classmates who had passed away. The class will meet once each quarter on the second Thursday at Fuddruckers in Rome at 11 a.m. The first gathering will be held Jan. 11, 2018.
