Carver 50th

Rappahannock News - - FROM PAGE ONE -

The Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton Carver Re­gional High School Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion will mark the 50th an­niver­sary of the school’s clos­ing at its an­nual re­union ban­quet and meet­ing this Satur­day, Nov. 24, at 6 p.m. at The Pav­il­ion on Lake­land Farm in Or­ange County.

“Or­ange is one of the coun­ties from which Carver’s stu­dents trav­eled to get their high school ed­u­ca­tion,” ex­plains Linda G. Wash­ing­ton, co­or­di­na­tor for the event. “In fact, most of the 69 stu­dents in the first grad­u­at­ing class of 1949 came from Or­ange, so it is fit­ting that we should lo­cate this spe­cial cel­e­bra­tion here.”

“There is much to be thank­ful for this year,” she con­tin­ues. “Our in­vig­o­rated or­ga­ni­za­tion has con­trib­uted to the beauty of our old school by adding a brick walk­way, and in co­op­er­a­tion with Culpeper County we’ve de­vel­oped a new mu­seum that prom­ises to be a cen­tral lo­ca­tion for cul­ture and ed­u­ca­tion through­out the re­gion.”

A lim­ited num­ber of tick­ets are still avail­able by con­tact­ing John Slaugh­ter at 540-672-0088 or Re­becca Ap­per­son at 540-2291869. Ticket prices are $65 each. No tick­ets will be sold at the door. For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Linda G. Wash­ing­ton at 540-5383349.
