After 11 years of fun and fellowship, the
Blackbeardís Gathering in
Albany may be history ... unless
someone is willing to step up to the organizerís plate.
Greenway and Janice (Chastain) and Bridges Simmons started
the popular gatherings in 2002 with their classmates from 1950,
and it grew to include all AHS classes over the years.
The years have taken
a toll on the organizers and Wynelle has
duties, single-handedly, for
several years now ... with a beautiful smile!!!
She announced at the
April meeting that she is looking for a replacement to do
reservations and bring supplies and cakes to the gatherings.
Now, itís someone elseís turn!
If no one is
interested in taking on the job by
the July and
October meetings will be canceled and the curtain will come down
Those of us who have
enjoyed the privilege of gathering and reuniting with classmates
over the years give highest praise to Wynelle,
Janice, and Bridges for
all their work to bring us together.
And now, from
our hearts ... we sincerely thank Wynelle
Davis Greenway and
wish her all the best!
Sadly ... the curtain came
down; but memories linger ...
... were started by the classes of 1950
and 1951 in 2002. They had an idea that AHS Alums - no matter
the class, no matter the age, might enjoy coming together for
food and fellowship once every three months. Originally led by Wynelle
Davis Greenway, Bridges and Janice Simmons, it has been a huge success.
Classes from the late 40's to early 60's have been
represented. If you like to laugh, if you like to see old
friends and make new ones, and if you are located around Albany,
or happen to be in town at "Gathering" time, YOU ARE WELCOME!!!
Reservations an absolute MUST!
