The reunion is planned for Oct. 27 at Bells Elementary School, 12088 Lowcountry Hwy., Ruffin. Tickets are $75/couple or $50/single. No tickets will be sold at the door, so registering by the deadline is imperative. Information and registration are available by contacting Sirena Memminger, firstname.lastname@example.org.
