Round House Reunion set for Sept. 21

It will be a day of reminiscing Sept. 21 at Reelfoot Lake. The annual Round House Reunion will begin at 11 a.m. at Reelfoot Lake State Park’s Blue Bank picnic area. According to organizers, during the 1950s and 1960s, the Blue Bank Round House was a major attraction at the lake. People came from miles around to listen to music and enjoy the lake’s beauty. Many friendships and romances started at the Round House and many happy memories were created. The Round House Reunion allows visitors to relive “the feelings and sounds of yesterday,” organizers said. “The day is filled with good music, good food and good friends on the shores of Reelfoot Lake,” according to organizers. There is no admission charge and concessions will be available. No alcoholic beverages will be permitted at the family event. Those attending may wish to bring picnic lunches and sit by the lake as they meet old friends and enjoy an afternoon of music, organizers said. Live music from a variety of groups and musicians will feature tunes from the 1950s and 1960s. Rain date for the event is Sept. 28. For more information, call William Green at 885-0294 or Reelfoot Lake State Park at (731) 253-9652. Published in The Messenger 8.20.08
