Willow Oaks Plantation prepares for an exciting event to come!

At Willow Oaks Plantation, we have a saying: Our history, your story.  And while we’re sure plenty of stories will be revisited at our upcoming event, our guests are bringing with them quite a timeline of their own history.  On Saturday, August 20th, the John Motley Morehead High School graduates of the class of 1961 will celebrate their 50th high school reunion here at Willow Oaks. 

In a time before Facebook, cassette tapes, and skating rinks, teenagers enjoyed attending school dances, catching a drive-in movie with friends, and bee-bopped along to the fresh sounds of The Shirelles, Roy Orbison, and Patsy Cline.  A sense of school spirit rang true and everyone knew the art of storytelling and togetherness.

The event to come is expected to be quite a treat, complete with music of the era and a current class photo to be taken in front of the Willow Oaks house.  (We will post the picture on our next blog!)

We’re looking forward to welcoming this wonderful group of guests to Willow Oaks, and enjoying the rich sense of community, friendship, and shared history they will bring.  We’re honored to be the setting of this very happy occasion!

As we prepare for the festivities this week, we’ll surely be singing the familiar tune from The Beach Boys, “Be true to your school!”
