A few members of the Lockhart High School class of 1983 are in the process of planning their 30 year class reunion. For more information you could contact Lori Cooper Roberts (466-6170), Alisha Waters Wade, and Robin Carter Black. As of now, Lori is the only one I have a phone number for. But Robin’s mother said she would give me updates, and I’ll pass them to you.
I never went to any of my class reunions, and sometimes I regret it and wonder what it would be like to see what everyone accomplished in the years we graduated. Oh I get the usual phone calls asking me if I’m going to come, but something always stops me.
You see there were close to 500 in my class, and the only ones I can recall are the ones that I started school with. We consolidated four schools when I went into the 10th grade, so the first year no one had anything to do with members of the other high schools. Everyone stayed upset that they weren’t graduating from their original school, and the kids I went to school with weren’t upset because this was the high school we had built for us.
But it really would be a big expense: 17 hours of straight driving, (so maybe a motel room somewhere in the middle), gas, a motel room for a week (because I would also want to visit relatives), food, the reunion cost, and my class always likes these reunions to start on Friday, then continue on Saturday and end with brunch on Sunday. Of course I’d have to buy new clothes, have a personal trainer (for the stars) to make my body look younger, dye my hair (heaven help me if they’d see gray), what else is there! Well, most of it’s true, except for the trainer.
It’s so much easier to have a reunion here, because most of the class lives around here. They see each other every day. Except for Robin, I believe she lives in Virgina.
Not Heard At The Beauty Shop
I run a beauty shop, and they have a reputation of hearing all the news. Well maybe in a big salon, in a big city. I overheard today that a friend of mine’s husband passed away the other day, and nobody bothered to tell me. When I asked someone about it they said they thought I had heard because I run a beauty shop. So my sympathy goes out to Gail Dabbs Garner for the loss of her husband, Wendall. I always had fun with Wendall, he was a real nice man.
Uneventful Fourth Of July
Did you enjoy the 4th. It seemed odd that it was on a Wednesday. I didn’t do anything unusual, typical Wednesday (my day off, anyway). Just sat around and waited for someone to get ready to go to Spartanburg, all day. No hash or barbecue, or hamburger. There didn’t seem to be much in the way of fireworks around town. When I first moved back to Lockhart from Adamsburg, we would sit on the back porch and watch the most beautiful fireworks, all around us. I guess the cost of them must be up since you don’t see any.
The Council Members and Mayor of Lockhart want to come up with a Logo for a seal for Lockhart. If you have any good ideas give me a call. We’re not having a contest, but we are throwing ideas around. But all the other towns have one and now the State wants us to have one for our legal papers.
Birthdays And Anniversaries
Pat Queen is having a birthday tomorrow, July 7. Cathy and Jerry Smith have an anniversary on the 7th. Happy Birthday on the 8th to Ned Farr, and on the 8th Julie and Danny Comer’s anniversary. Birthday wishes on the 10th to Mike Massey and Noah McCutcheon. Shane Grady and Jerry Smith’s birthday on the 12th and Joyce Humphries on the 13th.
Wesley Chapel and Lockhart Methodist Church welcome their new minister, Rev. Donna Eidson. She had been going to Rev. Alan Quarles’ church in Graniteville, and now she’s here where he used to be. Both churches have had dinners for her so everyone could come out and welcome her.
And God promised man that good and obedient wives would be found in all the corners of the world. Then He smiled and made the earth round.
If anyone has seen Tina Temple, will you please tell her to contact me. Thank You.
Chuck and I went to the old Captain’s Galley last Saturday for the first time in a while. Well now it’s called The Chester Cove, and has a new owner that brightened the place up, and opened the walls into windows. He comes around and talks to everyone, he wants to know if everything is alright, and you aren’t neglected in anyway. It’s a pleasant place to dine again.
No More Accidents
In case you are wondering, I haven’t had any clumsy spells this week, and the black eyes are starting to go away, and with the help of makeup. The forehead is still a little green, and still a little sore, but I lived! And this week is great so far.
Well, maybe next week I’ll have some news about who went where and so on. So I’ll say goodnight. Call 864-545-6652
Holly will be at my shop Sunday from 12:30-8 p.m. painting fingernails and toenails for $5.
