To all classmates of the West Rowan Class of ’65:

We are having a “social get-together” at 1:00 pm on February 24, 2024 at Mario’s Restaurant.


Howdy Classmates,

I don’t know if anyone still visits the Spirit of ’65 website, but I’m posting this in case y’all visit before February 24th. (Mike)


From Glenda Gray Kearns:

Hello everyone,

It is time to get together again. Well, really it is past time. The days are short and driving in the dark is not fun anymore. That is why we thought we would try 1 PM on a Saturday. That gives us more time to spend socializing. Mario’s is more than happy to accommodate us.

Please help spread the word to all our classmates. I know I don’t have everyone’s contact info. Let me know by 2/20 if you can join us. We will need to give Mario’s a headcount.

This is casual, Dutch-treat dining. (Sorry guys. I know you wanted to wear that new tie you got for Christmas, but save it for another occasion).

Hope to see you on Sat. 2/24 @ 1 PM

Kind regards,

Glenda Kearns


Mario’s is located at 8850 Statesville Blvd, Cleveland, NC, 27013 at the intersection of US Hwy 70 and NC 801. (I recall that it was “Bames” when we where at West Rowan.)

If you are planning to come, contact Glenda Gray Kearns.

Stay Safe Everyone!

WRHS Class of ’65 – 50th Year Reunion


The West Rowan High School Spirit of ’65 50th Year Reunion was held on September 26, 2015. It was great to see so many of our young friends, and sharing camaraderie, food, and drink. Those of you who could not make it were missed. Please plan to attend the 55th year reunion in 2020 (exact dates to be determined). Check back here from time to time for details.

Many thanks to the 50th Year Reunion Committee for all their hard work to make this event a success!

Many thanks to Wayne Wrights for the fine photography.
