The E. W. Wyatt High School Class of 1967 observed its 50th year reunion in Myrtle Beach SC with some traveling by a Magic Carpet Tours’ bus, others by motor vehicles and some meeting us there on Friday, June 2 through Sunday June 4th, 2017.  With more than 35 E. W. Wyatt High School Panthers/Panterettes, friends, children, a grandchild, spouses, a son-in-law, associates, etc., the evening started with dinner at Preston’s Family Seaford Restaurant and a play at the Alabama Theatre.  Oceanfront suites provided scenic views and we certainly took advantage of all that they offered.  Saturday’s festivities were spearheaded by Thelma Atkins-Riley (who started with the class of 1967 but transferred and graduated from Greensville County High School) serving as Mistress of the Ceremony.  A powerful invocation was delivered by Bernice Parker-Jones that further set the atmosphere for an exciting and fun-filled time of fellowship.  The purpose for the event was given by Jeanette Williams Mason along exciting icebreakers that each classmate had to take part.  We laughed, laughed, and laughed even the more about details that have transpired among each other in the 50 years since graduating.  Carol Jean Wells read the names of deceased classmates from the yearbook and Mary Cribb-Love led the reading of the 1967 class poem.  Thelma Atkins-Riley presented memorables to non-1967 classmates who accompanied us, along with giving the same to Classmates with noteworthy life events.  Thelma Givens-Jones presented 1967 Panthers and Pantherettes  with beautiful gift bags while photos were taken.  Afterwards the group enjoyed outlet shopping until the time came that they had to ready for a meal at the 1,000 room seating eatery of the Original Benjamin’s Restaurant followed by another fun-filled show of Motown’s Legends in Concert. It was at the concert that Jeanette Williams Mason, had an opportunity to put Emporia VA on the map!  The opportunity was presented from the stage to mention the significance of the group’s visit and she enjoyed saying, “We are from Emporia VA for our 50th High School Reunion” to a crowded audience who applauded.   The show proved enjoyable with the performances of a Comedian, impersonator of Gospel Legend, Prince, and others.  On Sunday, the bus loaded en-route to Emporia VA with gospel music playing.  However,  it was at 1:00 PM someone announced – church is over – its 1 o’clock!  Well about 1:01 PM we listened to “oldies-but-goodies musicals” the rest of the way back home - the likes of Gladys Knight,  The Temptations, The O’Jays, etc.  Travelers could be heard talking about the great time that everyone had.  Some said  - “we needed at least one more day”!

Any down time on the trip was utilized in the lobby with laughing and reminiscing of old times, realizing for many that those really were the “good old days”.

1967 E. W. Wyatt High School Graduates are looking forward to catching-up some more on July 21, 22 and 23, 2017 at the Mass Reunion and encourage classmates who did not travel to Myrtle Beach to join us then.  Among the contact persons for the Mass Class Reunion is Joan Grant Innis, sister of our Classmate, Donald Grant.
