LENOIR, NC (May 12, 2018)…The 5th Annual “Dining with the Demons” was held at the Caldwell County Fairground on Hwy 321 in Lenoir on Saturday, May 5, 2018.  Over 275 people participated in the reunion for students who attended Granite Falls High School before its merger in 1977 with Hudson to form South Caldwell High School.   Special guests were former teachers – Mr. and Mrs. Donald Kirkpatrick, Mrs. Helen Fowler, and Mrs. Martha Martin.  Alumni began the program with the Pledge of Allegiance to the American Flag and recognition of Blue Demons who served in the U. S. Military.  Rev. Jack Coffey (class of 1948) gave the blessing for the covered dish lunch.  Debra Burns (Class of 1970) emceed the event.  In addition to enjoying great food and fellowship, GFHA alumni donated over 350 pounds of food to Pay It Forward Food Bank and South Caldwell Christian Ministries plus a box of hygiene products to SCCM.  DWTD was begun in 2014 by the late George Keller (Class of 1967), who passed away a few days before he could see his dream come true.   Other alumni took up the reins, and it has become an annual event on the first Saturday in May.  The next one will be Saturday, May 4, 2019.   For more information and to view photos, check out the Dining with the Demons 2018 Facebook page.
