On Friday, Oct. 9, despite the rainy conditions, The “R” Club of Russellville High School Alumni held their annual Meet & Greet in high fashion under the “Panther Party Tent” set up in the tailgating area at Rhea Stadium.
The evening also was set aside to observe the Rhea Stadium Memorial Dedication. There were approximately 250-300 people gathered to enjoy visiting with friends, reminiscing, enjoying music provided by WRUS, and feasting on Roy’s BBQ.
Reunion goers had opportunity to see what began as a dream in September, 2014, literally come true before them with the “Brick” football display revealing so many bricks purchased. Our Superintendent, Board Members, friends, students and Alumni came from far and near!
Sonny Green and his nephew, Buddy Wright, had many of his original “Panther” items on display and for purchase. Greg Owens stated, brick sales continue to climb so the memorial should be much larger next year.
Please let us know how we can help you get your brick ordered. An application may be secured at the Central Office or on their facebook page, The R Club. Additional pictures can be viewed on the website at www.russellville.kyschools.us.
