The building had fallen into almost total disrepair and has been rebuilt since the 1992 reunion. It is ex- pected to be the center of excitement to those in atten- dance. Also featured will be historical pictures of the pio- neers and the buildings of the town from the 1890s through the 1940s. Some of the returnees will remember and others will only have heard about the depot, the cotton gin, the drug store, the hotel, general stores, and the other enterprises which made up the pioneer town. An old-fashioned Box Supper will be held on Satur- day evening at 7:00 p.m. with contests for the guy with the best-looking legs (or whatever), and many music makers 'pickin'n grinnin' throughout the evening and again on Sunday afternoon. The Sunday program will feature recognition of the families represented, and an old-fashioned basket din- ner. There will be telling of tales of yore which seem to grow in excitement and detail with each re-telling. The public is invited to join in the celebration. The 1994 reunion will be the seventh such reunion held since the first one in 1982, with increased attendance each year. It is hoped that the 1994 reunion on September 3 and 4 will exceed all previous records. Merrick is located one mile south of SH105 at the Lincoln/Logan County line section. There is a sign indi- cating the location at the county line. The sign was pro- vided by the "Griffith" girls, all eight of whom married and are no longer Griffith girls, but are so known throughout the state. For additional information concerning the reunion, persons may contact Leatha Dawson, 405-478-0944, or Kathryn McIntyre, 405-375-3234, both within the Okla- homa City calling area; or Bobbye Fowble, 405-865-2547 in the rural area; or Martha J.
