HOLLENBECK: Reunion stirs up memories of another time and place

June 4, 2011

Talk about your deja vu moments.
I was eating the banquet meal at the recent Cotton Plant High School Get-Together that combines classes from way back when till they just don’t want to come anymore. That’s a weird way to describe the event, but that’s the way it is. It’s open to anyone who attended Cotton Plant High School from the beginning days and is open-ended. No one ever shows up from classes after the early 1970s, but they’re welcome all the same.
I digress. Back to the meal and the incident that mentally jarred me back to an earlier day.
