Homecoming at Potts Camp School to honor Stones
By KEN BASIL
As many of you know, the old gymnasium at Potts Camp School no longer exists. We would like to honor those of you who spent countless hours playing and practicing basketball in this facility. We are dedicating the 2006-2007 Homecoming festivities to Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell Stone and all former Potts Camp basketball players. During that evening the special honorees will be asked to come to the floor to be recognized.
We want this to be a special night for you and the Stone family. The evening will not be a success without you. Please make plans to be with us the evening of January 5.
Katherine Dye, a professional artist, painted the old gym and prints will be available that night for $25. A portion of the proceeds will go to Potts Camp School.
We look forward to seeing each of you in January.
