  • Thanks extended to reunion’s organizers

    Editor:

    I just want to say thanks to all the people who organized the English School Reunion. We all had a good time. I met people I hadn’t seen in 50 or 60 years. It was great to meet and talk about the old times.

    I am sorry for the ones who knew about the reunion but did not show up. They missed a great time.

    It was well worth the drive from South Carolina to attend. Again I say many thanks to all who helped organize this reunion.
