Class reunions are so much fun. Wilbur Maxwell organized a reunion for the class of 1948 of Pamplin High School at Mimmo’s Restaurant in Charlotte Court House for Sunday afternoon Sept. 9. There were 11 members of the class of 1948; there are still five members living. Those present enjoyed a delightful lunch and talking about good old school days and some of the things that went on. In attendance were Hilda Allen, Wilbur Maxwell, Geraldine Ramson Mitchell and William Hix; one member was absent due to illness.
