The former employees of Sherman Fruit of the Loom met on June 23 at Cravin' Catfish in Sherman. Leland Taylor was the emcee, while Norman Bradley welcomed everyone to the party and Charles Gammel gave the invocation. About 65 people attended and enjoyed fellowship with each other. One special former employee that everyone was glad to see was Flora Mae Martin. On her birthday in February, she will reach the 100 year mark! She is still very active. Everyone looks forward to seeing Flora and all the others in 2014 at the next reunion.
