The Pine Bluff High School Class of 1960 will meet at noon Thursday, May 3, at The Corner Café, 3907 Camden Road.


All classmates and class members of other years are welcomed to attend.


“We welcomed guest Bill Phillips from the class of 1961 who took us up on that invitation,” a spokeswoman said in a news release. “We hope more from other classes will meet with us.”


The 1960 classmates attending the April meeting were Jerry and Ruby Wessels Poteet, Marie Brown Jones, Robert and Lenora Porter and Bill and Norma Ridgway Ray.


“Norma had a very special guest, her great grandson Trevor Richardson,” according to the release.


Norma Ray also read an excerpt from Jack Graham’s book, “Angels”: “In 1995, at the Kentucky Governor’s Prayer Breakfast, Pastor Bob Russell stood before the dignitaries and community leaders gathered there to offer the opening prayer. I’m sure everyone seated expected the typical prayer, but that’s not what Bob delivered. Instead, he gave this call to repentance and a cry for forgiveness.”


“A few of the numerous things Pastor Russell noted in 1995 were: we have lost our spiritual equilibrium and inverted our values, worship other gods and called it multiculturalism, and exploited the poor and have called it the lottery. It’s unfortunate but all the things he said have declined even more since then,” according to the presentation.
