People, Places and Things – August 31, 2017

George Morehead, Class of ’64, and Jim Borgan, Class of ’64

Again on Saturday night, August 26, Jim Brogan and George Morehead hosted the WBHS All Class Reunion at the Vinton Moose Club. What a great time it was!

Jim and George began this tradition 14 years ago after losing one of their classmates and decided that five years between reunions was too long. We so agree. There was well over 200 Terriers celebrating with them Saturday night. There are not enough words to thank these two for their continuing support of William Byrd High School and the Town of Vinton.

Congrats and Happy Anniversary to Melanie and Robbie Wilmoth on their 25th and they renewed their vows, dressed in their tye-dyed shirts. Unfortunately, Robbie ended up in the hospital for treatment on his foot, but is doing better now.

Also, Bonnie and James Wood, 43 years, Terri and Vic Robinson, Steve and Darlene Marshall, 36 years, Bryan and Beth Maiden, 12 years, Chris and Sabrina McCarty, 2 years, Tonda and (avid reader) Ronnie Fugate, 21 years, Janine and Frank Stone, Missy Renee and Gerald Montagne. May you all have many more together.

Paul Barnard, Class of ’64, and his wife Joy
Carolyn Hodges Williams, Class of ’61, with Chris Keaton, Class of ’73, who came from Nashville to join in the fun. Chris is a member of North Carolina Music Hall of Fame and likes to be known as a fashion icon and Maddi’s Dad. His wife, also in attendance, is Gina Humphries Keaton, Class of ’78. So happy to have you with us, Chris and Gina.

Congrats and Best Wishes to Deborah Roger and Keith Bohon Jr. on their recent marriage! May you have a long life together.
