The children of the late Grant and Lillie Dempsey met recently at the Dempsey homestead near the old Centerville Community. The event was hosted by the youngest daughter, Charlena Mask, who lives there now.

The group enjoyed a wonderful lunch and fishing. George Dempsey caught a large fish, which made its way back into the water from the bank before anyone could snap a picture of the prize fish.

Geneva McKelvey also caught a large fish, and Charlena Mask caught a large snapping turtle, which also crawled back into the water.

Clifton Dempsey had not seen the home place in several years, so they all loaded into their vehicles and the back of a pickup and took a wild ride over the fields and around the ponds. They observed "pretty" cattle and a crane flying over the mountain.

Attending were Clifton and Juanita Dempsey, Uriel and Edith Dempsey, of Blair; George and Grace Dempsey, Altus; Bernice Duncan, Gould; Geneva McKelvey, of Hobart; Paula Page, of Blair; and Minnie Dempsey, of Snyder.

Many pictures were taken, and they enjoyed telling funny stories about their years of growing up.

The day ended with all holding hands and Uriel Dempsey giving a prayer.
