    I love Carrollton, and for the last decade I’ve known many great people that work in, and for, this community.

    I know them because my work has brought me into this town so much of these years and I’ve spent literally thousands of hours experiencing this place called “Carrollton.”  I know these people and have seen what they do.

  • 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.
