Potts Camp News
Larry and Mary Jane Robbins celebrate 50th
Congratulations to Larry and Mary Jane (Greer) Robbins of Ripley who celebrated 50 years of marriage on Friday, Sept. 28. She and I were classmates at Potts Camp. They are wished many more years of happiness.
Another classmate, Don Randolph and his wife, Dene, also celebrated 50 years of marriage recently and took an anniversary trip to Hot Springs, Ark., where they stayed in the famous Arlington Hotel. They enjoyed the hot baths and Dene especially enjoyed a wonderful massage, one thing she has always wanted to do.
The new bridge on Highway 349 across the railroad tracks at Oaklimiter Creek opened Tuesday, Sept. 25. While the temporary bridge worked well, it is great to have the permanent one. Thanks to everyone who had a part in this project. Now we are waiting for work to begin on the Chewalla Creek (overhead) Bridge.
Congratulations to Jennah Morris for winning the title of Young Miss in the Elementary Beauty Revue at West Union School last week.
Recent visitors of Mr. and Mrs. George Dickey were their son, Joe Dickey of Oxford, and his granddaughter, August.
I enjoyed reading Linda Jones’ article last week about her travel to Iuka to attend the quilt show and also her visit to the Apron Museum. After hearing a program by Carolyn Terry at the Historical Museum in New Albany recently, some of my family planned to attend, but we didn’t get there. It would have been wonderful to see the quilts as well as visit the museum.
A homecoming football parade will be held at 1:15 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 5, starting at the school. Homecoming festivities will begin at 6 p.m. at the Sports Complex. The homecoming court will be presented and the homecoming king and queen will be announced. The homecoming game against Immanuel Christian begins at 7 p.m. Let’s all “meet across the tracks” for the game and show our support.
Potts Camp Class of 1957 met for their 55th class reunion on Saturday, Sept. 29, near Hernando at the home of Connie (Holbrook) Parker.
Randy Rhynes of North Carolina visited his parents, Orville and Gladys Rhynes, on September 24 to celebrate his mother’s birthday.
Bobby and Connie Campbell of Red Banks were recent visitors of Pauline Hutchens.
David Erwin of Madison, Wis., son of Richard and Sue Erwin, has been chosen to serve as chief of the Wisconsin Capitol Police Department. He is a 1981 graduate of Potts Camp, a 16-year veteran of the Wisconsin State Patrol, and has served as commander of the State Patrol air support unit. Prior to his work for the State Patrol, Erwin served in the United States Marine Corps where he was an instructor sergeant. He is to be congratulated.
