Golden Year Reunion

2019 Golden Year Reunion - JUNe 19-21

Golden Year Reunion is your annual opportunity to return to your FHC days…to return to campus, walk the halls and remember those years, to spend time in the company of friends and share stories, legend and lore, and to remember the blessings brought to each of us from our time at Freed-Hardeman.

As we specifically welcome the class of 1969 to our ranks, I encourage you, whether you’re celebrating an anniversary year or not, to plan to be with us June 19-21.

 

A few highlights from this year’s agenda:

  1. An optional day trip on Wednesday, June 19, to enjoy lunch and two Civil War era museums in Corinth, Mississippi

  2. Breakfast on Thursday, June 20, at the newly renovated Hardeman House along with a tour giving much detail about the Hardeman family and the history of the home

  3.  Tour of the completely renovated Old Main along with our Thursday chapel service in the beautifully restored Chapel Hall

  4. Devotionals led by members of the class of 1969— Steve Johnson, David Lipe, and Eddie Miller

 

Additionally, for the Thursday evening banquet, an element of fun has been added as we are challenging you to get creative and dress as you would have during your years at FHC…should be interesting to see who will accept this challenge and how accurately you represent your years. This might require perusing some old photos, but I believe it will be worth the effort.

One final request, I would like to create a slideshow of pictures from your FHC days to view as we enjoy dinner on Thursday evening. Please pull out your photo, scrapbooks and memory boxes and provide pictures for this purpose. You can mail pictures to me at the address given in this packet or you can email pictures to me at cramey@fhu.edu. (All pictures need to be received no later than Monday, June 10. Mailed pictures will be returned).

I look forward to welcoming you home this summer.
