How hot was it? It was so hot…

You’ve heard the old expression, “It’s hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk.” Well, Wednesday afternoon in Camden with the temperature hovering at 94 degrees, it was at least hot enough for scrambling eggs on the pavement. Lenora Taylor and Flora Thomas, nutritionists with the Clemson Extension Service, tried the egg trick on the Springdale Plaza parking lot. Tension mounted and hopes were high as Taylor and Thomas cracked one egg shell each with a spatula. One of the eggs scrambled up a bit before the heat drove the pair indoors.

Reunion celebration

The Bethune High School Class of 1951 observed its 40th anniversary recently with a reunion celebration at the Bethune Recreation Gym. The highlight of the evening was the roll call by Mrs. Emily J. King, class sponsor. A brief recap of the past 40 years was given by each student. Of the 14 graduates of the class, 11 attended including Dorothy Parker Lawson, Zulene Sullivan Williams, Esther Squires Middleton, Carrie Mae Norris Liptrap, Colene Mangum Buchanan, Melita Burley McPherson, Doris McCaskill Gardner, Cleatus Johnson, Donald Dickey, Bobby Jones and Hayes Copeland. Classmate Raymond Hall was unable to attend but talked to the group by phone. Also unable to attend was Barbara McQuague Huckabee. A table was set up in memory of the late Betty Outen Shao. BHS Principle Doby Gordon donated a “Pride of Bethune” shirt as a door prize which was won by Hayes Copeland.

Blaney students spread safety tips with posters

Several students from Blaney Elementary School recently participated in a SAFE KIDS poster and essay contest. Guidance counselor Glenna Brown-Kaiser, along with Bett Ross and Ruth Brown of the Clemson Extension Homemakers Association, showed the students a safety video and encouraged them to participate in the contest.

The names of all the children who participated in the contest were put into a hat and the children whose names were drawn received special prizes. Rusty Moyer, Justin Brazell and Dottie Green won bike helmets. Thomas Roberts, Elissa Negron, Jennifer Delbovo and Melissa Mathews received T-shirts. Shane Salmond was awarded a bicycle.
