It had been more than 16 years since some of the employees of Clarklift of Winder got together. The employees reunited Saturday to reminisce about their days with the company, which included social gatherings in Jefferson and other surrounding areas. I attended the reunion at the invitation of my Aunt Lynda Ayers, whose husband, Donald, was a long-time employee of the company.
While it had been many years since they had been together, everyone was soon laughing and reminiscing about their time with the company. Your co-workers often become family and it was easy to see this group was a family. Several Jackson County residents were in attendance, as well as people from Barrow, Madison and other nearby counties.
