2008 Winners of the Barefoot Reunion Prizes and Social News


Each year the Barefoot Reunion Association awards prizes to the oldest man and woman, the youngest child, the person who traveled the farthest to come to the Barefoot Reunion, the newest married couple and the longest married. Clair Mock at 104 has been winning the prize for the oldest man for a number of years. Clair remembers the first reunion, over 92 years ago. The oldest lady is Hazel Sipe, who is a Barefoot in-law - mother of Pam Strange, wife of Jim Strange. The newly-weds were Aubrey (Erdley) Garvin and Ben Garvin, who were married in the Washington DC Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on 21 June 2008. John and June Hammer, married 62 years, have been winning the prize for the longest married for quite some time. The youngest child was Colton Yeager at 3 months, son of Jeremy and Corinna Strange Yeager. And Mary Hott Hutchison took the prize for traveling the farthest - driving in from Huntsville, Missouri.
