Please participate in the 1971 and 1972 DB Class Reunion


Please see the flyer for the 1971-72 Dobyns-Bennett Class Reunion coming up in September.  Although we have lost some of our beloved '71 and '72 classmates over the years, there are still many of us still around who grew up together in Riverview and Douglass, that weathered the strains of integration, to continue on and receive the education that Festa Dobbins and our parents pushed for all of us.  

Let's get together and celebrate that legacy.
