Planning has already started on a special Memorial Day Celebration at the Lake Toxaway Community Center this year. Send photos of locals killed in the line of active duty to Jan Plemmons at 966-9288. There will be more information to come on this great event. On your next visit to the community center (when it opens in the spring) make sure you take time to look at the memorial wall. It is quite impressive.
Thoughts And Prayers
Keep the family of Joretta Owen (Galloway) in your thoughts and prayers. She passed away on Jan. 8. Services were held on Jan. 11 at Lake Toxaway Baptist Church.
Dedication of the new track at the community center will be held in June. The date and time will be listed in future articles.
