Copeland High School Class of 1953 had their 62nd class reunion at Lone Star Steakhouse Restaurant in Mount Airy on Nov. 21, 2015.

Thirteen class members were present out of the 27-member class. Four did not attend and 10 are deceased. Payge Hardy and Agnes Carlyle were in charge of the reunion.

The class has a reunion each year. A delicious meal was served and fun was had by all. Numbers were drawn and door prizes were given to each member, seven spouses and two guests who were in attendance. A poem was read in remembrance of the deceased members.

The next reunion will be in the fall of 2016. The time and place have not been determined yet.
