School Story:

My first grade class with Becky Shankle, and twins - Jim & Peggy Jefferies and Bill & Bernice Bazemore. Five Points - going to Gattis' Drug Store and getting a Pepsi Ice before going to ballet & tap class after school.
Sherwood Bates - Mrs Kennedy's 3rd grade class - the many plays she had us to do. Miss Apple's 6th grade - having to stay after school a lot because of a few boys cutting up during class. Going to Johnson's Drug Store after school and getting a cherry coke before going home.
Hayes Barton Pool - taking swimming lessons at age 7 & being able to go swimming without my Mother being there. Going to Brownies and Girl Scouts - we still have get togethers after all of these years!
Riding my bike to Cameron Village to go shopping on Saturdays. Getting back together with friends at Daniels - joining the Civil Air Patrol with Becky Shankle, Val Paget, Kay Yearby, Jim Jefferies, Ralph Scofield, Butch Hill, Bill Stuckey, Bobby Stuart, and a few others.
Going to the L&M on Friday & Saturday nights. My Dad taking my cousin, Frank Taylor, and me to Sears parking lot on Sunday afternoon to learn how to drive!

Broughton - Mrs Fish's 10th Grade Biology class and getting help from Tom with those horrible earthworms and frogs. Mrs Stell's math class. Being in History Class with Mary March and with Seniors who had to have their exam early so we only went through WWII. My being called to report to the Office after school over the loud speaker only to find that David Clegg had been hit in the head during gym class - his parents were out of town and my mother had to come get him and take him to see Dr Senter. We found out later that John Stover had accidently hit David in the head while in gym class.

Making my gown in Home Ec for the Senior Prom. So many memories - thanks to you all! ** During my college years with Gay Herring at Campell College, we would ride together from Buies Creek to Raleigh.

I was with Vivie Lear at Greensboro College in 1962. While being back home in Raleigh after a snow storm, I got a call from Betty Ruth Johnson asking if she and her Duke friend could come over to the house and go sledding on Churchill Road - it was so good to see Betty Ruth again and to recall a lot memories of going sledding on Churchill Road.

I am sorry to hear about Thelma. She liked Betty Ruth’s Afghan and asked that l make you one. Hope you enjoy it. Losing a loved one is hard. I lost my husband in 1996 - memories are in my heart. We are planning our 60th Class Reunion and hope to see you there!
