Have you ever wondered how the reunion event got started?  Our leader is Tommy Huskey and it was his idea. 
Here is his story:

The Perfect Storm
How the LHS 1960 - 1970 Reunion was Born

-by Tommy Huskey

 

With the laws of "six degrees of separation" I must give Colin Rudisill the honor of being responsible for the Reunion and this is how it happened.

Five or so years ago Colin Rudisill was working in Charlotte for a Mortgage Broker. One day Colin called and mentioned that one of his former coworkers had opened a bar in Gastonia.  He asked me if I would like to ride over with him to check it out.  Of course that was a silly question.

So, we ventured over to Gastonia to Freemans Pub, at 173 W. Main Avenue.  Brad Freeman chose a nice location for his pub in old Gastonia.  It is set up nicely, provides good food, good drinks, and good fellowship. Needless to say, I started visiting the Pub from time to time.

One day I was in there and started a conversation with a gentleman who turned out to be Bob Freeman, Brad's father. Bob mentioned that he was on the committee of the West Meck/Hardin High School Reunion and he gave me his card.

It sounded like a great idea to me. I thought, "Hey we can do that with the LHS group of classmates!" I checked out the West Meck/Hardin High School Reunion website, I googled Reunions 101 and called Bob a few times for information.


The West Meck/Hardin group call their reunions "The Sixties" class of '60 to '69. Crap, if we did that I couldn't attend! You see I'm a classmate from 1970. After I made a slight change to their rules, I started assembling a planning committee. I looked through my annuals. Then I branched out to annuals belonging to friends and family members. I checked out the Class Officers of each class - 1960 to 1970. See how I cleverly added in my class?  I ran through a good many names in the first year and by the end of the year I had a list of willing accomplices. And I had an awesome group with diverse talents!

Luck was on my side!  I found people! Pam and Patsy, the "computer geniuses," Paula and Steve the "people people."  Then I asked people who had worked on individual class reunions, Ellen, Becky and Linda. Then we found Mickey Caskey, the "entertainment man"  And Rickie, the "money manager!" And of course not to forget Gail, the manager of the Silent Auction.  And my sweet wife, the "hospitality manager."  We are fortunate to have folks who join in to look after certain aspects of the reunions.  Some volunteer their trailers and personal vehicles for hauling our "stuff."  Some volunteer to manage the cornhole tounaments (Wink Finger.) The Loftins do the bingo.


Lucky again, the group kept growing into the committee we have today.  Many of them were strangers to one another before we started our journey.  Today we are like a big family.  As with any family, there were struggles and disagreements.  We made mistakes and learned from them.

If you are reading this now, you are aware of the results. We have had a great time putting this together and look forward to many more years of "Fun and Games".

So if Colin wasn't a friend and hadn't worked with Brad and Brad hadn't opened the Bar and I hadn't met Bob Freeman and I hadn't decided to put it together and I hadn't found the right people to help and we didn't have such a great relationship, I don't believe we would have a Reunion.

That's my story!   Thank You Colin Rudisill!   Now if I can just get him to come to a reunion!   Oh well, that's another story.

Thomas E. Huskey, Jr. P.E.
