The Class of 1961 was the first graduating class to attend grades 8-12 after all county schools were combined to create Oconee County High School.

Thirty two classmates and fourteen spouses attended a blast from the past and retrieved long forgotten memories as Oconee High School Class of 1961 celebrated their 45th reunion at the Watkinsville, GA Community Center (July 15, 2006). OCHS 1961 graduated fifty-nine and Thirty-two responded when the Class roll was called by Jimmy E. Thomas, Class Vice-President.

A moment of silence was taken to remember the deceased classmates:
Wyverlyn MARSHALL (Peck), Fred Wayne DICKENS, Walter Harold THOMAS, Terry DAWSON, Billy WHEELER.

An excellent meal and finger food, commenced the night as "old friends" relived memories and renewed friendships. Rock and roll decorations including stand up Elvis posters and juke box, along with picture directory, picture name badges, posters, scrapbooks, name that tune, and trivia questions served to make this celebration one to remember.

Directory, posters scrapbooks, and picture badges prepared by Connie Epps Bond, Nancy Patat, Jimmy Thomas and Jerrie DooleyTeet.

Joan Anderson Mann presented “Name That Tune” songs and Gwen Christopher Greenway presented trivia from the old school newspaper “Smoke Signal”.

COUNTRYSIDE CATERING owned by Jerry Warren and Mary Stewart, Winterville, GA catered the event.
