Draggin' Main: Wildcat reunion ready to rock


The Clovis High School Class of 1975 is coming to “rock” the Clovis Music Festival and Draggin’ Main.

The class, one of three reunions taking place the weekend of June 23, could not wait another five or ten years after their 2015 40th class reunion to meet up again.

“We had such an amazing time that we just couldn’t wait to see each other again,” said Marcy Anaya, an organizer of the event.

The class is coming together June 23 and 24 to celebrate their collective 60th birthday while the class of 1967 and 1977 celebrate their 50th and 40th reunions, respectively.

The class plans to watch the parade and Draggin’ Main as a class, perched in front of the Curry County Chamber in rocking chairs.

“We want all our old timers to bring rocking chairs because Clovis rocks,” said Anaya.

The 1967 and 1975 class are each expecting 75-100 people to come from across the country. The Class of 1967 are flocking to join in with a banquet and tour of Clovis High School.

“I am excited to become more acquainted with my classmates after 50 years,” said Class of 1967 Reunion Organizer Ardeth Leslie.

All three reunions take place in conjunction with the music festival and Draggin’ Main in order to give the class mates more to do together.

“I enjoyed my high school experience and made lots of friends. I always look forward to seeing them again,” said Mayor David Lansford, organizer of the 1977 reunion.

He said their reunion has 50 people currently registered but that they are likely to see that number double by the time of the actual reunion.

“If we get 100 folks, it is likely to be a sweet time for everybody,” Lansford said.
