The annual North Hopkins Alumni Homecoming was held at the North Hopkins school cafeteria on Saturday, Nov. 6. A small, but good, group of about 40 gathered for the event. Kenneth Cockrum, Peggy (Goldsmith) Gibby and Mack McQueen, members of the Class of 1960, were honored for their 50th reunion. The group enjoyed visiting and a delicious meal from Murray’s Bar-B-Q. Several door prizes were awarded. The group elected officers —Tommy Long, president; Nita (Goldsmith) Kelty, vice president; Sammie (Long) Bedford, secretary; and Jan (Horn) Vaughn, treasurer/reporter. The homecoming is held on the first Saturday of each November. We would like to encourage more participation next year.

Thanksgiving Dinner will be served this Friday, Nov. 19, in the North Hopkins School Cafeteria. Families are welcome to eat with their children during regular lunch times. Adult meals are $3 and children are $1.75. The students and staff will be out for Thanksgiving break Wednesday, Nov. 24, through Friday, Nov. 26.
