Warren County reunion draws over 200 people
Ed and Mona Powell enjoy visiting with friends at the recent Warren County Reunion meet and greet held in the Warren County High School cafeteria.

Reunions are a time to gather together to reminisce about days gone by and to renew old friendships. The inaugural Warren County Reunion was held recently with over 200 folks coming together for a meet and greet reception, followed by an outdoor picnic the next day.
“We had several people come into McMinnville from other towns and states,” said committee member Wayne Wolford. “The guests checked into hotels, ate at local restaurants and shopped at our stores. This was good for McMinnville’s businesses.”
The group enjoyed finger foods and soft drinks at the meet and greet, held at the Warren County High School cafeteria. Many conversations were enjoyed, history notes shared and many photos taken.
The following day, activities were planned at the Rocket Ball Park, with attendees setting up tents, tables, chairs, coolers and grills. Many food items were available, such as barbecue, hamburgers, hot dogs and fried fish. They enjoyed a corn hole tournament, basket all and games with the youth.
“I had people tell me they went from tent to tent just visiting and making new friends,” said Wolford. “They renewed acquaintances with people they had not seen in 40 years.”
The American Legion post was a sponsor for the event, with numerous veterans and families attending. The reunion was open to anyone that wanted to attend.
Committee members include Fred Locke Jr., Jeffrey Martin, Mary Sanders, Donna Martin, Phyllis Nowlin, Larry Locke Sr., Rebecca Roberts, Martha Womack, Charles Lusk, Annie Ruth Womack, Michael Ramsey and Wolford.
The committee has tentatively set next year’s event to take place on July 1- 2, with more details to follow.
