Class of 1964 Celebrates their 80th Birthdays
Members of the Class of 1964 recently gathered in Raleigh, N.C., to mark the occasion of their 80th birthdays. Classmates from North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee traveled to the Triangle area for a special afternoon to celebrate their lifelong friendship and 80 years! To mark the occasion, Joy Adams Lucas, class agent, wrote a poem and shared a copy with attendees.
80 Years in the Making
In nineteen hundred forty-two
There was a war in the world.
But happiness came to many that year
With the birth of a little baby girl.
She was beautiful and bright,
A beacon of light in a dark and troubled world.
Years passed and she grew
Into a lovely, young lady,
Entered Meredith College
In the fall of nineteen sixty.
Friendships were forged; memories were made
And her love for Meredith would never fade!
Now, it’s fifty-eight years later
And friends still meet
To hug, laugh,
And especially to eat!
So here’s to those girls born in 1942,
Happy 80th Birthday to each one of you!
