Ben L Smith High School
Class Of 1968
ANNOUNCEMENTS

The Ben L. Smith Class of 1968 will celebrate their 50th Class Reunion on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at the Elk's Lodge located at 2201 W. Cornwallis Dr., Greensboro, NC from 7:00 - 11:00pm.  The event will include heavy hors d'oeuvres, music provided by deejay, Rick Burnham (class of 1969) and plenty of time to re-acquaint and visit classmates who have all participated in life's journey these last 50 years.

Since we're all kind of casual people, casual dress is appropriate.

Cost for attendance is $50 per person.  Spouses and guests are welcome!  Payment may be made by personal check.  Please plan to pay no later than September 15, 2018, however, the sooner the better so that the committee can cover expenses incurred.

Make checks out to: "Ben L. Smith Class of 1968" and mail them to Phyllis Alley, 8861 Racine Rd., Pleasant Garden, NC 27313.

On a separate piece of paper indicate your name and your guest's name so that an accurate accounting of planned attendance can be kept and so that name tags can be made for the event.
