East Surry Class of 2007 Facebook Group Created

July 28, 2015 by Adrienne Murphy Combs (Register to contact)

Over the years, I have noticed several friends become apart of a Facebook Group with their Graduating Class; therefore, I decided to start one for ours. It is so hard to believe that we've been out of High School for eight years! I hope we're able to organize a Class of 2007 Reunion by 2017! It would be wonderful to catch up with everyone.
