By James Capozella Petersburg High School Alumni members and friends filled the Petersburg Elementary School cafete- ria for the 100th anniversa- ry of the Petersburg Alum- ni Association Banquet this past Saturday evening. The group of more than 100 was welcomed by second year president Rick Miley and opened with a prayer from Pastor Paul Newton follow- ing the social hour and pri- or to the dinner catered by Carla's Catering. Dr. Howard Briscoe was joined at the podium by Jill Ford Snyder for the recogni- tion of reunions and roll call of classes. Rosemary Weath- ers represented the class of 1941 as the oldest in atten- dance and Howard Bris- coe represented the class of 1946. Briscoe and Snyder sang the Petersburg High School Fight Song from memory to the delight of the alumni members. Rick Miley reminisced about a recent trip he took through town that included stops at the Frostop, the roll- er rink and Selby's Pool Hall. The dozen or so business- es and locations no longer exist, but his time capsule brought back fond memo- ries to many of the Peters- burg grads enjoying the trip with Rick down memo- ry lane. A fter the business meet- ing, which included the sec- retary's report and the trea- surer's report by Betty Mi- ley Newton and Sandi King Talley respectively, the new officers were announced. For 2019, Becky Howard will be president and Rob Franklin will be vice presi- dent. Becky Hensley How- ard is stepping down as vice president while Newton and Talley remain at their posts.
