The Class of '61 is participating in a combined class picnic/reunion with the Weir High Classes of 1957, 1958, 1959 and 1960 on Wednesday, August 19, 2015 at the Serbian Picnic Grounds, Kings Creek Road, Weirton, WV. Please click on the tabs to the left to see all the information you need.
72 classmates made it to the 70th birthday party and what a blast we all had. People came from as far as Colorado, Georgia, Virginia, Florida, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Food was good; music was excellent and the photo booth was a huge hit. As soon as I get the pictures, they will be posted on the site (hopefully in a week or so).
A HUGE thank you to everyone who came and also to those who helped with the event.
Thanks to Bill Anderson, movies of our prom night are posted on the following website:
