WINNSBORO – As about 10 class groups gathered for the bi-annual Fairfield High School Alumni reunion on Saturday, each class tailgated under their group’s colorful tent. Alumni Association President Donald Prioleau emceed the event and DJ Pete Martin took care of the music.

The weather was beautiful and everyone ate, visited and danced through the afternoon. The day ended with about 30 of the alums parading their classic cars around the school.

On Sunday morning, they gathered for a drive-in service on the school grounds.
