Adding Names to Faces

The class of '59 is also present in this picture. On the back row are Rosemary Gettys, Beki Griffin, Billy Rawls, Olin (Jitterbug) Sikes, Dick Worley, and John Hoyle Williams. The little boy who is bent over but looking up is Douglas Aldridge who was with us until about 8th grade.

Others I recognize who were not in our class (59) are Kay Sells, Larry Broome, Larry (Clarence) Helms, and I believe Leonora Howie. I am wondering if the little Flow girl is not the older sister, whose name escapes me, because she is with Kay Sells, who would have been in her class.

Hi, Margaret........nice to see a new name pop up!
Thanks for joining the "detective" effort in identifying people in these wonderful old photos.

So many of us remember these wonderful events, and everyone in this Pet Show photo looked "like one of us"....but no one was exactly matching up! Your id's make sense.......didn't remember that Sara Catherine had an older sister!
And all the other names I sort of remember, but it's fun seeing them matched up with the young versions of themselves.

I'm so enjoying pulling back all these old memories!

I'm so glad we are starting to get some action here on the blog. Sara Catherine had a younger sister...shoot, don't remember her name. I'm sure Susan Gordon Wellborn may chime in on this since Jim's brother, Robert, married Sara Catherine. I could pull out the year books, but I'm lazy........
BTW, I woulda never recognized Mary Eda's hair clip :-) I did notice Ginny Howie over on the left side. Wonder what happened to her? I remember seeing her in Raleigh when I was at Meredith. Went over to see her and her husband. Hmmm? Ginny, Patricia and Mike Howie. They lived across from Deb Owen Lawrence in those early years and were great friends!
Which reminds me, do you guys remember those fond memories of walking to town for lunch at the Soda Shop. Is there a picture out there? :-) We walked behind the school through the graveyard, remember? And stopped back by Carr's Novelty Shop..........for some reason I'm only remembering Halloween and funny wax teeth with some liquid inside.....fond memories!

Mary Faith, thank you for the correction on the little Flowe girl. I had mistaken her for Sandra Trull for some reason, even though I do remember Sara Catherine's face. Nita Wall and I are both surprised at how many younger children we recognize and attribute it to living in a small town where people cared about one another.

By the way, Beki Griffin, Salie Smith, and I are also Meredith graduates, as you may or may not know.

Margaret, That reminds me - not to get off the subject at hand, but you may want to take a look at the latest Meredith Magazine. I haven't gotten mine yet, but have received emails from some Meredith classmates regarding the article on me and my art.

Mary Faith, I am surprised Meredith hasn't given your art some attention before now. I am so impressed with the beauty of your colors and your technique. And to think, it's "little Mary Faith Milton" who is producing such fabulous work. I haven't gotten my magazine, either, but I will certainly anticipate its arrival with far more interest than usual. Congratulations!

Mary Faith, as far as I know Sara Catherine didn't have an older sister. There were 2 older brothers much much older than she and her sister Mary Ann, who was about 2 years behind us. In effect, Mr. and Mrs. Flow had 2 separate families. Mary Ann is, or was, an administrator in a community college in Florida. Speaking of Florida, Robert and Sara have headed back to St. Augustine from Maine for the winter and seemed to be doing fine last we heard.

I, too, remember those treks to the Soda Shop for lunch and going to the bakery for those decadent Napoleons. We'd usually hit the Novelty Shop for that syrupy stuff in small wax Coke bottle shaped wax. Sells Wholesale was, I believe, right next door. Remember I got my first record player from Sells when I was in the 6th grade. It had Elvis Pressley's name embossed in corner. Was I cool or what?
