KHSAA Summer Social
July 15, 2017

What began eighteen or so years back as a casual "bring your own picnic" at Anson Nixon Park has evolved into a casual buffet catered dinner.

Our event was held at Jenner's Pond Retirement Community on the above date -- the same weekend and location as for a number of recent years.

Seventy two members and guests attended.  I'm labeling it "Entertaining Dinner Social and Reunion" because it was truly all of these.

Our "Entertainment" was provided by the Dixie Demons -- a talented group of six professional musicians all of whom are KHS graduates.  They provided us with an hour of pleasure.

Our "dinner" was the same buffet menu provided that night to Jenner's Pond residents at other dining areas on the JP campus.

"Social" is obvious.  Asking questions and providing answers and table talk was constant.

"Reunion" is a new concept -- tried for the first time this year.  The KHS class of 1952 was invited to use our already-scheduled event for their 65th year reunion.  They were able to enjoy the same amenities as well as a reserved area for the class of '52 attendees.  The Class of '52, eighty three strong at graduation, was reduced to thirty two remaining at July 15, 2017.  Considering the many reasons for inability to attend, nineteen class members did make our event.

Consider having your class reunion in conjunction with the KHSAA Social for a following year.
