Happy 60th Birthday to the Class of 1977!

Most of our classmates are turning 60 in 2019, and we had a great big birthday bash on June 8 to celebrate!

Check out our photos - and there are lots more on Facebook!

We had a great time, and a lot of people put in a lot of work to make this a fun, affordable weekend for all of our classmates.

Thank you to everyone who contributed. If you did something and I leave your name off (or if I spell your name wrong), please contact us and we will get your name added to the list.

Mike Miner - who will always be the President of our class - pulled together a team and kept us on track.  His tireless committee consisted of Deborah Brice Kerr, Frieda Croom, Wendy Crosby Hill, Andy Hall, Susan Hellinger, Phyllis Linear, and Thomas Mercer. 

The weekend started out with a meet and greet at the 731 Club on Vann Drive. Those of us who traveled from out of town had an adventure finding this place because Google maps sent everyone to the wrong place. 53 classmates picked up their t-shirts that night, and the 731 Club never knew what hit them! 


Saturday morning, a group went to the Old Country Store for breakfast. We found out on Friday that the venue for Saturday night didn't provide set up and break down services. Frieda Croom was afraid we would have to pay someone to help with that, but our classmates stepped up and turned what looked like work into fun! (and work, too!) That's our Cougar spirit coming through!

At 3 PM on Saturday afternoon, a group of classmates went to the JC-M crosswalk, reminisced about the days when we had to "cross campus", and had our picture taken in front of the "Aspirations" statue. We noticed a police car sitting in the parking lot keeping an eye on us. We think they were afraid we might try to put the blue paint back on the statue!

The main event was Saturday night. The Jackson Convention Center (aka Motel 6) turned out to be a perfect spot for our party. The room was just the right size, and Frieda Croom worked her magic and turned that place into something worthy of the 1977 Cougars! The food from Latham's was delicious, we had birthday cake and toasted with sparkling wine/juice. We had a photographer who printed off your picture right then. We had a great DJ who played music from the 1970's. The dance floor was busy, and at one point everyone joined in on the "Love Train".  


I can't say enough about all of the people who stayed after the party to help clean up - "many hands make light work". 


We still have 1 small and 1 3XL t-shirts! Let me know if you want one - first come, first serve.
