The families of the late Melvin T and Goldie (Norris) Swopes gathered June 26, 2016, at the Circle S Feed Store with 33 present.
This was the 28th year. So thankful for each one able to attend. We realize it is a busy time of the year for farmers. Our thoughts and prayers are with each unable to attend.
David Goddard, Grace’s oldest son, asked the blessing before a great meal. The afternoon was spent visiting and a few took pictures.
Those attending were: Rich Hill – Lynn and Pam Allen; Walker – Clint and Raye Swopes, (our newly weds) Tom and Grace (Swopes) Harold; Milo – David Goddard, Mike Goddard, William Edmonds, Alli and Ana; Nevada – Anita (Allen) Rolando, Connie Mac Allen, Joyce (Allen) Dulier, Dirk and Connie Allen; Appleton City – Leroy and Dorotha (Hillsman) Swopes; Springfield – Raymond and Clara Mae (Swopes) Garrison; El Dorado Springs – Ron and Janet Swopes, Minnie Lee (Frances) Swopes, Rick Swopes, Kolton Hutchison, Brittany and Quade Wood, Mandi, Kyle, Kennin Hutchison, Melvin (Vess) Swopes, Derl Barnett and June (Swopes) Coleman.
We plan to meet again next year, June 25, 2017, at the Circle S Feed Store in El Dorado Springs.
May God continue to be with us all, our nation and the service men and women.
God bless America.
