    My father’s family is from Montgomery county. Each year we have a family reunion at the Long Pond Community House. The last Sunday of September. I appreciate your photos and any stories. Thank you

    I attended the first grade in this building. The school closed after my first year and we were bussed to Alston. Mrs McArthur (or Macarthur) was my teacher. I learned to read the “Dick and Jane” book and how to write my name. Also smoked my first cigarette in the outdoor toilet. Not much learning but a lot of memories. I walked to school with Drucilla and Julian Goff.
