MHS Class Of 1948 Holds Reunion
McConnellsburg High School class of 1948 met for their 61st high school graduation anniversary on Sunday, October 18, 2009. The social gathering took place at Weaver’s Restaurant in Hancock. Their gift of mutual friendship runs deeper and deeper each year ever since they danced to the music of the Phil Young orchestra at their senior prom. The group shared old photographs while exchanging fond memories and stories during the course of the afternoon. The majority of these folks currently reside in Fulton and Franklin counties, but four of them traveled from out of state to the event.
