  1. BILL RUSSELL!! Man what a great blog, your old buddy Walter Brooker here back at ya. Boy do I miss those days in Jaycees when we rocked the world. Most days now you will find me and my wife Niki and partner Ken Phelps at BBQ COOK OFFS, around South Carolina. My wife and I are helping the Lake Murray Jaycees plan and coordinate a BBQ event to happen sometime in 2011. Lately I have had to put competitions on the back burner due to health reason with both myself and Niki. We will both win against our challenges. You know me – I don’t surrender or quit – just not in my nature.

    Well you keep up the good work that you do as usual. You can find Niki and I on Face Book under Squeel Appeal , that’s our team name.

  2. Hello, I am an educator at Finley Road Elementary School in Rock Hill, SC. Finley Road will be celebrating it’s 55th Birthday in 2012-2013 and I hope you will keep in touch with the school to hear about our plans for an Anniversary Celebration. You may want to attend! If I may, I would like to copy & save your class photo for a memory power point.
