You can be sure that I love my job of writing Heflin Highlights. One of the BEST parts of that job is being able to wish happy birthday and happy anniversary to my dear friends.

CCHS Class of 1989
I received an exciting email from Carrie Brown McWhorter this week. She tells me that the Cleburne County High School class of 1989 will hold a 25 year reunion during this year’s CCHS Homecoming on Friday, October 4. She also tells me that there is a Facebook page, but they are still looking for a few classmates. If you are interested in finding out more information, contact them via Facebook or send an email to Carrie Brown McWhorter or Beverly Skinner Casey to 89gradCCHS@gmail.com for updates.
Calling All 1963 Tigers
One of my favorite items of high school memorabilia (and I have a great many of them) is a red and black car tag saluting the 1963 Tiger football team as being undefeated! By doing the math, you can derive that it has been 50 years since that magical season. Folks, this milestone is worth celebrating! The great news is there are plans for such a celebration this fall! As we speak, team mates are planning events for September 28. If you were a member of that team, you do not want to miss this all important reunion. For more information, contact Charles Ed White at 256-463-5705 or Rudy Payne at 256-454-3359/256-463-5815 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. These gentleman need contact information for as many 1963 Tigers as possible.
Never let a small dispute destroy a great friendship.
