Family and friends joined with Lemond “Eugene” Maxey and wife, Lillian, to celebrate his 90th birthday on Saturday. His actual birthday is recorded as March 1, although he was possibly a leap year baby. Among the approximately 100 attendees were the couple’s son, daughter, three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, numerous previous students and friends. While he shared many memories, those in attendance shared too, “A memory to keep…” and added them to a Memory Jar; there were also gifts, cards, Reese’s and a signature quilt was begun as a future treasure. All, including Eugene, enjoyed several hours of fellowship, Maxey trivia, cake, treats and beverages.
