To the Editor:

Friday, Nov. 24, 2017, the final Coley’s Stag reunion will be held at Long’s storage units on Canton Rd. starting at 11 a.m.

The reunion committee has enjoyed putting on this annual event since 1997, but as they say, all good things must come to an end. And although the decision to end the reunion was a difficult one, it was one that we felt needed to be made.

We hope that everyone has enjoyed attending the event over the years as much as we have enjoyed putting it on. A lot of people have been through our doors and a lot of memories have been made.

The committee would like to invite you to come out one more time and help us honor the memories of Russ and Henry.

The CHS Student Council would like to thank a few people for their contributions that helped us create a successful Fall Homecoming Parade and Crowning Ceremony. For the parade, we would like to thank Deluxe Body for supplying the flat bed for the pep rally and to DeNoon Lumber for providing the lumber for the bonfire. We would like to recognize all of our parade participants who filled our homecoming parade with Warrior Spirit. For our crowning ceremony, we would like to thank Bud’s Flowers who donated the Queen’s bouquet and The Awards Center for donating our Queen’s trophy. We would like to thank Lynn Fairclough, the Carroll County Auditor’s Office, for sponsoring the Queen’s crown and the Carrollton Athletic Office for donating a football signed by all Fall sports athletes. We would like to thank Glenn A. Kerns, from Camelot 2 for taking the pictures at the game. We would also like to thank last year’s Queen Taylor Keefer for returning to crown our new royalty. Finally, we would like to thank our fans for making the night special. Without your generosity and kindness our homecoming wouldn’t have been possible. Thank you!
