(Right click on pictures to enlarge. You'll be impressed!)

Jerry Gaudet sent these great pictures he took of Central's new "face." It looks like the renovation is almost complete and, frankly, is very impressive.

The only complaint I have's almost TOO GOOD. The face of the CHS we attended had it's share of Character lines and wrinkles and concrete "liver spots."

Kinda like most of us.

But that's soon forgotten when we realize that it's the spitting image of the school that was so important to us all.

I can't wait to see it in person, hopefully sometime this Fall. Meanwhile, these pictures will serve as my "instant replay" of 53 years ago.

Jerry went on to say that:

"While passing Central High School today, I stopped to take the enclosed pictures. Imagine my surprise when I returned home to find in my mail an invitation from Central Piedmont Community College Foundation to a Central High School Multi-Class Reunion, on Sunday, September 30, 2007, 1 PM to 4 PM. This, to re-dedicate the newly remodeled Central High School building.
If you are interested in this reunion and did not receive CPCC's invitation in the mail, you can contact the CPCC Foundation Office at 704/330-6869."

Please Note:

In Jerry's original note emailed to the class it said that the date is Sept 16th. Harry Ferguson pointed out that was the date of their RSVP request....NOT the reunion.

Again, the reunion will be Sunday, September 30, 2007. 1 pm til 4.

(Your loveable, award winning webmaster, didn't get an invitation. My guess is they only sent invitations to those who contributed money for the rebuilding.
Do I feel guilty about that? Nope. My guilty list is long enough; besides, I wasn't one of the bozos who decided to tear it down in the first place. -Ed)
