Members of the White County High School graduating class of 1949 gathered for their 70th reunion at Life Care Center of Sparta, Tennessee, on Nov. 1, 2019.
Several honorees live in the facility’s assisted living apartments and wanted to host their reunion at their home. The classmates were encouraged to bring guests, and many brought their adult children to the event.
Life Care Center of Sparta’s dietary team provided the meal, and the assisted living residents decorated the dining area in WCHS colors, maroon and gray, with the high school’s pennants and maroon flower centerpieces. Associates served the meal.
“It was an honor to host the 70th class reunion for some of our residents and their classmates,” said Marcia Reel, assisted living director. “Making sure the residents are able to use the facility to host events like this is essential in making it feel more like home.”
The residents enjoyed spending a few hours reminiscing about their high school days and catching up with their fellow graduates.
