"11 Annual May Reunion"
The Annual May Reunion, which is held on 4th Sunday of August
each year, was held in year 1940 at home of Rev. & Mrs. David
May at their beautiful old Colonial home on Nicholasville road
between Lexington & Nicholasville. This was indeed an ideal
setting for such a gathering - the beautiful old home surrounded
by high maple trees & lovely blooming flowers. This was the
second reunion held at this home & so many changes have taken
place since the last meeting. Some have gone to their home beyond
& I am sure if it is possible are looking down & sending
their Blessing on the ones who are left.
Rev. & Mrs May, who are the two oldest descendants of
the May family, are both 92 yr. old at the time of this meeting.
They recently celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary.
All morning guests arrived ladended with baskets of good things
to eat & at noon hour a bountiful lunch was served on the
spacious lawn of home - Rev. May asking the Blessing.
In the afternoon Dr. W. B. Robinson of Mt. Sterling, president,
presided over a brief business session at which time the minutes
of the previous meeting were read & approved.
Rev. Wells, Pastor of the Nicholasville Methodist Church,
read the Scripture & made a brief talk. Rev. Ragan of Nicholasville,
Prof. Carl Northcutt & Prof. Cannion of Lexington made short
Approximately 205 persons present for the annual event.
