The Clovis High School Class members of 1955, spouses and other family members thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful program, good food and visiting at their 55th class reunion held Sept. 11 at the Clovis Carver Public Library which is located where their high school building was.

Beverley Smith created a wonderful program with pictures, poem, announcements and song. Brooks Jennings did a fantastic job as master of ceremonies with many amusing tales and memories of things that happened at high school, as well as, keeping things rolling.

Others who participated in the program and did an excellent job were Wiley Snyder who gave the beginning prayer and George Milburn who led the Pledge of Allegiance.
