REUNION REPORTS

 

 

    

 

~ 1963 50th Reunion ~

Bruce Gary and Pat Rose Duggan

 

Our count for Friday evening was about 199!

We had about 194 on Saturday for the picnic lunch! 196 for the dinner/dance on Saturday night!

 

We had the fabulous Grapevine Band out of Macon. Robin Hughes, a 1966 graduate of AHS, is one of the lead singers & performers.

They were so good that most of our classmates never left the dance floor until the band stopped around 11:30 p.m.

 

We were all 16 again for one glorious evening!

 

PHOTOS

Our ace webmaster/reunion-photographer, Winston McDonald has posted photos of our 50-year reunion weekend at www.ahs1963.us.Check us out! Do we know how to throw a reunion or what?

 

~ 1958 55th Reunion ~

Linda Cullom Jordan

 

The AHS Class of 1958 recently held its 55th Reunion May 3rd and 4th at The Merry Acres Inn in Albany.

Approximately 100 classmates attended. Friday night was a picnic dinner and Saturday night was a buffet dinner.

Everyone had so much fun and realized how much more precious each reunion becomes. We all may be more mellow but we certainly aren't dead yet!

The band played and the dance floor rocked! We just hope every class has as much fun as we do when we get together -- can't wait for the next one!

And Pictures ...

30th Reunion

 

Saturday, June 22, 2013

6:00 pm

 

Location: The State Theatre

For those who haven't lived in Albany for a while, The State Theatre was purchased and renovated several years ago and is part of the revitalized downtown scene. It has hosted a number of concerts and other events and will be terrifically fun space for our reunion. DJ Jimmie Jam Wafford's equipment will be set up on stage and he'll have access to the house disco lights. The floor nearest the stage will be available for dancing.

 

We'll have plenty of room for those who want to sit, talk, eat and drink. We will, of course, have food. The bar will be open and we'll even have a popcorn machine going!!

 

Of course, it will be decorated with AHS colors. And you'll experience a little nostalgia as you enter since all of us have probably seen at least one movie at The State Theatre. I hope you are making plans to attend what will be the best AHS '83 reunion yet!!!!

YOU ASKED… ? ? ?

*****************************

 

?~ I could not find any mention of Wayne "Bulldog" Hammond. He has passed away in the last several months.

~ Taylor Harrison (’54)

 

A~ Wayne's obituary was sent to the Class of 1955 (see below - from Chattanooga Times Free Press), and his name appeared in the next "News & Clues", "In Memoriam" ... however I checked on the actual "In Memoriam" webpage on the Albany High Times ... and you are correct. His name was omitted. I have corrected that omission and thank you very much.

 

?~ Would you please ask Betty Nix Rouse to please email me a copy of the picture from the First Baptist Church. I am positive that is my brother, Ronny Bartley. Thank you again for all you do.

~ Elaine Bartley Tarpley

 

A~ I am delighted Elaine recognized her brother....please send the picture
to her.....YOU and Albanyhightimes have made it possible for us to share!
Thank you so much!

~ Betty Nix Rouse

 

?~ Hello, the pictures won't open on this page ... 1960 Elementary Days Pics. Is there an alternative way to view the pics?? Thanks!

Terri

 

A~ There was no identification for Terri - last name or class. However, she directed me to a real problem - none of the pictures, submitted by Jud Savelle and his wife, Dianne ('60), DID NOT expand. Several years ago, the company that hosted the website was not credible and many of the pictures that expanded would not and remained "small thumbnails." The website is so large, I am still unaware of some that don't expand - so if you come across any ... please advise ... would very much appreciate! But they should all expand now.

 

Also - these pictures were put together as a class reunion project, and I made the decision to leave them together. Other school pictures are entered under the individual schools.

NOTE: Betty has pictures from grades 1 - 6! Here is one I love ... remember the old photo books with the black paper and the white pencil?

Her mother identified everyone through the 4th grade - I'll be typing those names in as I can ...

NOTE: I will be working later today to post her pictures ... but wanted to get the newsletter out on HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

 

 

*** Beverly, thought you might like this. The Albany Jr. High in the High Times may be an appropriate place for this picture. Thanks for all the good work you do on the site.

Also, Some 30-35 years ago a friend saw an AHS 1929 Thronateeska annual in a flea market or a yard sale and got it for me. There was also a 1928 yearbook

On April 24, 2013, he led a Biltmore Estate Gardens Tour for the Retirement Community where he lives in Black Mountain.

Charles Lamar Clifton

Co-author of "Skywater"

The Story of Radium

 

 

Charles Lamar Clifton, age 84, a native Albanian who served his community for many years as the Chief Executive of the Albany Area Chamber of Commerce, died at Morningside of Albany on April 23, 2013. His funeral service will at the First United Methodist Church. Interment followed at Crown Hill Cemetery with Military Honors.

 

Lamar was imbued with a love of Albany, SOWEGA, and his native state, and never stopped working for them. His career began in the late 1930s at the age of nine as an Albany Herald "downtown" salesman. Those were the Depression Days, followed by World War II. His sales netted him 35 cents per day, connected him with the business community, and led to his love of the Chamber of Commerce.

 

He graduated from Albany High School in 1946. He attended North Georgia College, where he earned theOutstanding Scholar/Athlete Award. He transferred to theUniversity of Georgia, where he continued in many extra-curricular activities including Blue Key and Gridiron Society. He was President of the Demosthenian Debate Society. He received his BA Degree in Journalism from UGA in 1950.

 

He was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army after graduation, and then activated his commission soon after the Korean War started. He served at theArmored School at Fort Knox, Kentucky; the 82nd Airborne Division, 44th Tank Battalion, at Fort Bragg, North Carolina; and then with the 140th Tank Battalion in Korea in the Sniper's Ridge, Iron Triangle area.

 

Once promoted to First Lieutenant, he served at Division Headquarters of the 40th Infantry Division as an Intelligence Operations Officer. He was decorated with the Bronze Star Medal "for ground operations against the enemy", the Korean Service Medal with 2 Bronze Service Stars, and the United Nations Service Medal.

 

His fiancée Evelyn Butler ('50) had waited faithfully throughout "the longest year" for Lamar's return. They were married on May 23, 1953. Following their honeymoon, Lamarstudied at the University of Florida for one year, and then returned to UGA where he earned his Master's Degree in Education.

 

After teaching high school in Athens and Albany, he began his career in Chamber of Commerce work at the Albany Chamber, followed by the Columbia, SC Chamber, theUnited States Chamber of Commerce, and the Mobile, AL Chamber. While in Columbia, he briefly left the Chamber and served as General Manager of WIS Radio for 3 years.

 

In 1973, the job he had dreamed of having since his days as a paper boy for the Albany Herald became available, and he returned home to serve as the Executive Vice President of the Albany Chamber of Commerce. Shortly thereafter, the U.S. Naval Air Station closed, threatening the local economy. Working with community leaders, Lamar was successful in persuading Miller Brewing Company, Delco Remy, Tara Foods, and the U.S. Marine Corps Logistics Group, Philadelphia, to locate in Albany. Additionally, Proctor and Gamble and other companies expanded locally,reinvigorating the town he loved. He left the Chamber in early 1987, and joined First State Bank as Senior Vice President for Economic Development until his retirement in 1994.

 

Following his semi-retirement in 1994, he was successful as anauthor, business writer, and consultant. He helped lead the effort to preserve the Radium Springs Casino, authoring the book, "Skywater (Click here: Skywater - The History), a Comprehensive History of Radium Springs" which was published by Morgan Murphy. He also wrote a history book, A First State Corporation Legacy.

 

He always believed in people, and attacked every project/goal with a "CAN-DO" positive spirit!

 

A Personal Hypothesis ...

It was the work of Lamar Clifton ('46) and Morgan Murphy ('46 & '47) and their efforts to save the Radium Casino that led to the birth of the Albany High Times. An entire web section on Radium (Click here: Radium Springs and Casino) has been created featuring written memories, pictures of young Indians sunning, swimming, diving, dancing at an other-worldly place that was unmatched in this whole United States. There are also pictures of those who worked with Lamar and Morgan trying, to no avail, to save the beautiful Casino. Then when it was over ... there are articles that chronicle the destruction of the Pavilion and the Casino. You may want to take a stroll down the best years of Radium and the worst.

 

Work has been done to create Radium Springs Gardens ... and those pictures and articles are also featured Click here: Radium Today.

*** Just finished reading the Albany News. Great and so interesting. You do so much to remind us Indians what a fun time we had making everlasting memories. I appreciate your time and effort to present this every month.

~ Betty Spell Wooddy, Class 1953

*** Some 30-35 years ago a friend saw it in flea market or a yard sale and got it for me. There was also a 1928 yearbook.

 

*** I have something to brag about! My son, Clinton Deckert is going to have one of his Surrealist Paintings on display at the Louvre in Paris, France. He just found out about it, and we are so excited. He is self-taught, no formal training and it is a HOBBY.

 

I surely miss Georgia; but the town I live in at least has the word South in it. Southington, CT

I did and it took my breath away!

 

*** Am not positive which years B. D. Lee coached "The BLUES" but I think it was after his coaching days at Albany High and before we went into the Armed Forces. I will keep searching for newspaper clippings which would tell us.

 

He apparently went into the Army about time I went into Navy. There were 8 or 9 very active teams playing back then for various sponsors. To my knowledge none of them were paid. We would travel in our own cars, seldom spent the nights away from home but when we did the Sponsor probably picked up the tab. We really hit the jackpot when the Albany Laundry furnished bright red satin uniforms and warm ups. I think we each paid for our shoes! It was during this period that we played the N.Y. CELTICS before they moved to Boston and the Atlanta JPC Club four or five times. I am slowly running out of steam just thinking about it!!

~ Chester Green ('33)

 

*** Thanks ... great issue...we appreciate your hard work...you need a raise!

*** Sylvia Vann was my 9th grade Algebra teacher. Loved her & have enjoyed knowing she & husband Lawson Vann (’55) in my adult years.

*** I saw Jim Tolbert's comment on Hal King. I was in that Home Room Class and also Mr. King's Shop Class. I still have my wooden box that we made in the shop class.

~ Gene Summerford Class of 1959

 

*** I am trying to figure out who Mrs. Council was? I think it must have been Mrs. Ray Council? Was her name Betty?

~ Glenda Council Beall ('58)

 

*** About Mrs. Council. I contacted Jan Giles Weathersby who was in that class picture and she wrote back that she hadn’t thought about Mrs. Council in years but she was pretty sure Mrs. Council’s name was Betty and her husband was Ray Council.

~ Mary Ann Allen Caldbeck ('63)

 

*** I have a new e-mail address. Please change your computers to this address.
Thank you

*** In response to a question in this issue ... as I recall they still have copies of SKYWATER for sale at the Albany Visitors Center on Front Street located in the Old Bridge House/Keenan Auto Parts building near Broad Avenue.

~ David Sherman(’61)

 

*** My name is Jimmy Bence, and I went to the 11th Avenue School; however it is properly known as the cotton mill village school. My folks worked for Flint River cotton mill, as did all the students parents that went to this school. It was a 2 room school house, and the rooms were laid out according to your grade. Mrs. Bland taught and also Mrs. Ruth Whaley was principal. She was later the Ordinary for Dougherty County. I graduated from Albany High in 1964, but I think I can still remember some from the photo’s of the 50’s picture from the School from back left was Betty Holley, then fourth on back was Richard Dekle, skip 2, then Linda and Brenda Owens, last on back was James Creel. Mrs. Bland on right. First row was from left, I think,Vina Gay Cleveland; skip 2, then me, Jimmy Bence, thenJulian, but I can’t remember last name. Then Gloria Lokey.That's all I can remember.

 

We really loved this school and our teachers. We even got to ring the bell for class, and go home for dinner. If someone can remember this school I think they can remember Nurse Croker from the Mill Village. As far as the mill village school, it is gone along with Mr. Beasley’s grocery store, and now the cotton mill has been torn down, and the old neighborhood of the mill village is gone. A lot of memories. Thanks,

~ Jimmy S. Bence ('64)

 

*** Mrs. L.M. Jordan lives at Morningside. She was 100 on her last birthday!

*** Re: the Sunday School Boys with Ray Ragsdale …

I’m pretty sure that is Sonny Davis on the lower left. Isn’t that Foster Joiner instead of Ed Jordan next to Ray on the upper left? I’ve been away a long time so I could be wrong.

~ Dale Briggs Deckert (’57)

 

*** Top left is Foster Joiner, bottom left Sonny Davis, and next to him looks like Rudolph Patterson.

~ Julian Whiting, Class of 1958, & 1959 (thanks to Billy Bragg & me)

 

*** My cousin Roy Barfield Jr. Class of 1965 is deceased.

*** I am sad to report that Johnny McLeod of Albany,AHS Class of 1965, passed away yesterday, May 2. He was the brother of a good friend, Betty McLeod, Class of 1963.

Note: Thanks to all those who send notices and/or obituaries of AHS Indians inside and outside of Albany. We would otherwise not be aware of our losses.

 

* Notices and/or obituaries are first sent to the deceased’s class, plus the classes of the spouse, child, or close relative, as soon as possible. Each is then listed on the “In Memoriam” webpage and also in the "News & Clues" the following month.

*** I was talking to one of my classmates, Ernest Hall ('58), and he and his wife are confined at home most of the time. I suggested he would love reading Albany High Times and asked if he would let me sign him up for it. He was really excited. So would you please add him to the AHT list to get the newsletter every month.

Thanks.
