We congratulate the 21 graduates in the 2011 senior class that graduated this past weekend at WCS. The Valedictorian was Adam Robare and the Salutatorian was Atlas Manning, proudly some nearly 35 awards were handed out to the seniors. There were many family celebrations around town to show their pride in their family student 's accomplishment. It was also a big weekend for the WCS Alumni; the 50 year anniversary had several class members return as did the 60th year alumni. Each of these two groups gathered at the Sportsman Diner on Friday during the day and then was the honored guest at graduation. The annual Alumni Banquet Reunion was then held on Saturday evening at Crickets with around 110 or so alumni returning. Teresa Sayward was the Master of Ceremony and Levi Sayward was the Speaker; good time was had by all.
In the recent Father's Day Fishing Derby one of our local teams did very well. The team of "Fish, Line & Sinker" consisting of Danny Sweatt, Chester Arthur Halen, Jacob Sweatt & Jason Sweatt placed 2nd in the Cold Water section of the derby. Chet brought in a 9.10 lb. Atlantic Salmon. The team's total helps in the over all placement. So their African Queen boat served them well in this event, and aided them to receive this award and it prize.
The United Methodist church honored one of their own this past Sunday, Ruth Young who has been a faithful choir member for many years. She now thinks she will have to cut back somewhat, but the church family wanted her to know of their appreciation and she is welcome to come anytime in the future to sing.
The Visitor's Center is now open each day and there is still some need for a couple of more Volunteers (especially on Sat afternoons) give Janice Allen a call if interested 963-8912. Sorry there was a delay in the opening of the Heritage Center Museum, watch for the new date; a great new exhibit.
Our sympathy is extended to the families of Dorothy Perkett and Ada Sharrow as these have been solid local citizens over the years and will be missed.
