Welcome to the eleventh edition of Dale’s Tales 
Homecoming 2001 Special Scrapbook Edition.

WONDERFUL, UNBELIEVABLE, EXCITING, GREAT, FANTASTIC, SUPER, FUN -  these are just a few of the words we have heard describing this year’s Homecoming as


For those of you who did not get to attend we will try and give you a day by day account of all the activities that took place over Homecoming Weekend.  And, for those of you who were fortunate enough to be there in person…well, you get to live it all over again. 


My sister, Ann Denham Callahan ’54, and I arrived on campus around noon.  We immediately went to the Gap Grill (which is located under the old gym) where registration was being held. 

Everything was in full swing.  We found Kathy Sparks, Director of Events, who had been hard at work all morning getting her shoulders massaged by WHOM ELSE…our very own Bill Kelly ’55.  (Always willing to lend a helping hand, Bill is.)

It didn’t take long for Susan and me to get set up with the raffle tickets for Janie’s oil painting.  Within minutes we had the first of our many sales throughout the weekend.

Also registering were Donald Kelly ’52, Jack Ayers ’51, and Dale Harris ’50

Ray Clackum ’57 and his sister, Marcelle Clackum Jones ’57, soon arrived.

After registration, Ray, Marcelle, Ann and myself decided to go to the archives building to see Billy Joe Stiles and deliver the computer and scanner that Ann and Ray, respectively, donated. 

Billy Joe was very excited and appreciative of the equipment, which he will put to use once the archives building renovations are completed. 

The Heritage House is being completely renovated.  Completion is scheduled for December, 2001.

Later Friday afternoon several of us attended the reception being held at Headmaster Greg Zeigler’s house.  The atmosphere and the food were wonderful, as attested to by John Rogers ‘56
