Local Family Celebrates 51 years of Reunions and still growing stronger each year

Submitted to the S. C. Advocate

hardin smallThe “Story” Family started their Family Reunion’s in August 1962, after the passing of their father, William Delbert “Bear” Story.

Delbert & Mamie (Anderson) Story had 6 son’s and 3 daughter’s, all of the son’s were in the military. When their father passed away on August 10, 1962, all the boys got leave from their post and came home for the funeral. When the funeral was over, they all had to head back, and they decided then that the first Saturday of every August, they would all come home to Pegram to celebrate with their Mother and family.

Over time, this family has grown stronger in number and in Love, and this year when they celebrated their 51st Family Reunion in Pegram, they had 131 people to be there.

Look close, you may recognize someone you know. We wanted to share this with you, because we believe in Faith, Love and Family. We hope to celebrate 51 more wonderful years.
