A Little Birdie Told Us…

That someone many of you know is having her 94th Birthday on January 26th! She did lots of people’s hair for years… was a key figure in the Chester Historical Society for years… and raised some kids you may have gone to school with! Why not send a birthday card and note to:

Mrs. Grace Oppenheimer
13247 Word of Life Drive #66
Hudson FL 34669-2451

Thanks to Blue Devil Carol Black MacDaniel for the tip… and to Fay Piergiovanni and Janice Brown for helping fill in the blanks!


Chester Student Nominated for Anapolis

January 11, 2010 Leave a comment

According to a recent article in the Country Journal, Gateway Senior Student Korey Whitaker has been nominated to the Naval Academy at Anapolis, Maryland. Among the many factors supporting his nomination he is in the top 10% of his class, a member of the National Honor Society and active in sports and community activities.

Blue Devils and Quarriers might suggest we add that he is the grandson of Edith Cooper Whitaker, our association’s secretary as a reason he should be one of the nominees that gets accepted. I’m not sure the Academy will make that part of the decision, but we think it’s great! Congratulations to Korey and his family…. and best wishes for success!
