    Volunteers with the Pine Valley Community School, Inc. will host the annual homecoming celebration with former students and community citizens, and their families, on Sept. 18, starting at 10 a.m. 

    The public is invited to come out and celebrate this joyous occasion. Bring a covered dish, and enjoy the fellowship and reminiscing along with a beautiful presentation by Betty Morris Hart.   

    “To truly know people, you must look into the souls and minds of the people,” reports Pine Valley Community Center President, Jimbo Thompson.

    “Pine Valley School was a gregarious community of proud people  –  deeply rooted in the soil and bound to a code laid down by their forefathers, the love of God, country, family, community and school,” Thompson said.

    The school was constructed during the Great Depression and was the starting or stopping point of the lives of many individuals.

    “Many schooled here made their dreams a reality and contributed significantly to the history of the school, community, state and country,” Thompson concluded.
