Man Alive, We've Hit 45!

The class took an early morning tour of the house belonging to the American Legion.  It is in great need of repair before it is totally destroyed.  A $30,000 new roof would go a long way in being able to restore this beautiful, historic and important house.
    
 
We next toured the Masonic Lodge.  This building is in very fine condition and well cared for.  Many of us remember the dressing room for Job's Daughters.
We next moved on to the County Courthouse which has been newly renovated, refurbished and restored.
We all met at the monument for a walking tour led by Fred Lawson.  We received interesting information about the monument that as children we took for granted, as well as information on other historic monuments, buildings and houses of Winchester.

 

 

Our tour ended with a most interesting tour of the Fountain Park Cemetery where we found several of our classmates have ancestors buried there who were participants in the Civil War.  The tour was led by Fred Davis, President of the Cemetery Board.

This is a requested photo of a classmember.  I won't say who, but I'd bet you can all guess.  His initials are Terry Cass!  Terry the 12 x 14 you ordered will be ready soon.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank each of you for making me feel so welcome as an adopted member of the class.  I am retiring as your webmaster, but I wanted to make this one last page for you.  I hope you have enjoyed the website.  It is not going away, but it will be administered by a new webmaster, and newly adopted member of the WCHS Class of 1967, Michael Bristol.  Please remember, he can't do it alone.  He needs content and Michael doesn't even have the luxury of knowing about each of you since he was little like I did!
