Retirees meet

A group of retirees from Pickens County government offices recently held its final luncheon of 2015 on Dec. 1 at Pizza Inn in Pickens. The retireesgroup, which started having monthly meetings 10 years ago, discussed current events in the county and enjoyed fellowship. Pictured, from left, back row are Ruby Hardy, Joan Bowen, Mildred Chastain, Marsha Reeves, Pattie Welborn and Joanne Roper. In the front row are Ruth Gilstrap, Doris Watson and Ann Day. Day retired from Pace Jewelers. Through the 10 years of the group’s existence, there have been as many as 21 members. The group never knows who will be in attendance.
