Georgia Tech BSU Alumni Gathering, Hiawassee

April 25-27, 2014

On this weekend, about seventy of us gathered at Lake Chatuge Lodge in Hiawassee for a reunion of those associated with the Georgia Tech Baptist Student Union. We have been gathering for well over 50 years now, and this beautiful lakeside setting suits us well as a place for this fellowship. We had last gathered here for Warren's 90th birthday celebration in 2011. We had previous reunions here in 2010, 2007, 2005, and 2000. During 2013 we had gathered for Warren's Memorial Service and for Sue's 90th Birthday as well as a spring gathering at the Gudger's.

Atlanta area gatherings have been held in 2014 at the Petty's, in 2013 at Athens Pizza, in 2012 at the Hammonds' and at Nancy Bonds', 2011 at Mary Mac's, 2009 at Nancy Bonds' and at the Rollins', 1981 at the Shelton's

This is the Sunday Morning gathering in which Frank Gudger led us in reflection about scripture verses that had guided our lives. We enjoyed continuing the fellowship that had started on Friday night. Sorry about the graininess of the blowups below, but I wanted to try a roll call of the group.
