Wall Doxey State Park setting for Thompson reunion
It was wonderful to see the former Jill Seymour, who came to my home with Mary Minor on Saturday night. They had attended a class reunion at the home of Mr. and Mrs. James Gray. Jill was the daughter of the late Margaret Alvis Seymour, one of my special girlfriends many years ago. Margaret was a twin (they were Mary and Margaret Alvis). Sylvia S. Akin is her older sister.

Call corporation if strangers seen boating
Wow! The flowerbeds at the entrances and also in the town hall area look so neat and beautiful. It’s a pleasure to drive by and look at them once again. The landscape committee had been on a touch and go basis for quite a while; but it’s back in full swing again. Now when we can get some fresh paint and letters on the signs, it will complete our beautiful entrances. Several folks in our community have volunteered to take this job on in the near future and we are looking forward to this as well.
