Come join the Mega Reunion / September 04, 2019

The members of the 1978, 1979 and 1980 Bluestone High School graduating classes are hosting the first ever Mega Reunion Banquet at the Clarksville Community Center on Saturday, Oct. 12. In addition to the Mega Reunion, the Class of 1979 is celebrating its 40-year milestone. All members of the Classes of 1978, 1979 and 1980 are invited. Each member may bring one guest. Classmates need to register no later than September 28.

Sheri Nunn States, of the planning committee said, “We are excited to join forces to create a memorable weekend for our dear friends. It is our sincere hope that the reunion will be a great success and we will host this event year after year.

“Many of us met at Sunday school, kindergarten, elementary school or junior high. We were in band together, cheered the Barons at numerous sports events, attended classes and much more. Having multiple classes attend the reunion provides more opportunities to reminisce about the times that we enjoyed together.”

The real force behind hosting a Mega Reunion came when the Class of 1979 learned that the Class of 1978 did not have a reunion last year. Members knew that we had more hands from the Class of 1979 and welcomed not only the Class of 1979 but the Class of 1980 as well. The Class of 1980 will also host its 40th reunion next year.

In addition to the reunion banquet, classmates are invited to enjoy Friday events including a tour of Bluestone High School from 2-3:30 p.m., Homecoming Football Pregame Tailgate starting at 5 p.m. and of course, the Homecoming Game at 7 p.m. Classmates are also encouraged to wear your Blue and Gold and sit together at the game.

The website, is the primary location to register for the banquet and to see a list of who is coming to the reunion. Yearbook pictures are updated on the website as well as a Facebook group page. Members of these classes are encouraged to join the Facebook page to enjoy the comments and excitement that has been building as the weekend draws near or access the website.

The most challenging part of planning a reunion is locating our classmates. Classmates are encouraged to contact friends to encourage attendance.

The Planning Committee is comprised of Vernell Scott (1978), Roxanne Ballard (1979) Deb Vaughan Edwards (1979), Alison Evans Faulk (1979), Robbin Bruce Fitzgerald (1979), Wanda Martin (1979), Sheri Nunn States (1979) and Yvonne Johnson Doswell (1980). For more information, please feel free to reach out to any member of the committee.

Class of '76 didn't have a reunion either. This seems like a great idea. Great job by the organizers.
