Ringgold county reunion held in Texas
A group of people with ties to Ringgold county met at Mr. Ghatti's in McAllen, TX for their annual reunion. They were
welcomed by a closed sign on the door because of cold weather and power shortages. Hiatt and Darlene RICE of Creston, who
have hosted the event for several years, made a quick decision for all to go to Ann's Restaurant in San Juan. The owner
was very nice and got them together in a room already set up. They got their orders in and had some time for visiting.
Those attending, along with Hiatt and Darlene, were Myron and Shirley INGRAM, John E. MEADOWS and Ron and Janis LOOMIS
of Kellerton; Jerry and Debbie SOBOTKA of De Soto; Lloyd and Donella PARKER, Dave and Liz WILEY and Bessie AUSTIN of
Diagonal; Leo and Jerri McDANIEL of Redding; Carmine JAMES, Pauline MURPHY, Harold BROWN, Darlene MORGAN, Lee and
Shirley BRAND and Francis and Marilyn PRITCHETT of Mount Ayr;
Murial (Pee Wee) CREED and Lloyd and Kay DRAKE of
Tingley; Ken and Phyllis ROBISON of Prescott; Pat KOONTZ of Prole; Quentin and Rita ANDERSON of Ellston; Marion and
Sharon PRICE of Waukee; Bonnie BAKER of Clearfield, and Art and Carol HAYS of Council Bluffs.
Lloyd and Kay DRAKE
will be the hosts for 2012 and have made arrangements for the reunion to be held at Ann's Restaurant in San
Juan for the first Friday in February 2012 at 11 a.m. If any of you are from Ringgold county or have any connection
with Ringgold or surrounding area, be sure and attend. It is good getting together with old friends and
neighbors. Hope to see more of you next year.
