The annual Salado Reunion was held June 9 at the Salado Intermediate School.
More than 100 people attended. The reunion began at 9:30 a.m. and lasted until almost 3 p.m.
During a short business meeting, several individuals were recognized and gifts were awarded.
The oldest person in attendance was Elizabeth Mosley, whose 95th birthday was the next day on June 10.
The oldest graduate in attendance was Wilhelmenia Friedrich, age 93, from the class of 1936. The person who traveled farthest to attend the reunion was Jimmy Madison of Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Following the business meeting, a catered lunch was served by Captain Red's Catering of Hutto.
After the meal, many stayed to continue visiting into the early afternoon.
For years, the reunion has provided an opportunity for residents of Salado, former teachers and coaches and their families and friends to enjoy a day of visiting together.
The Salado Reunion is held every year on the second Saturday of June, and newcomers are invited as well as long-time residents and former residents of Salado.
The first edition of the Eagle Pride Cookbook was made available for purchase at the reunion, having a collection of recipes, old photos, and recollections from contributors.
The classes of 1945, 1957, 1966 and 1975 were all represented at the reunion.
