RIVERVIEW REUNION – Oct. 1, 2017, was a great fall day for the gathering at Riverview Bible Church for the Riverview Community Reunion. With a great abundance of food brought by the good cooks in our area, to the great weather, a good time was had by all. Mike Norval led the prayer before the meal. Pictures were taken after the meal. A gathering inside for a short meeting was called to order by M.C. Lori Norval, with singing of “America the Beautiful”, Joe Norval read the minuets of last year’s program. We all bowed in silent prayer for our friends and loved ones who have passed on since last year. Burliegh Evans, Jim Willis, Mary Lou Wait, Forest and Thelma McCowan, Bill Wait, Joyce Norris, Dorothy Witt and Billy Joe Willis. Officers were elected for next year. It was voted to stay the same, Lori and Mike Norval.
