Published January 15, 1975 in The LaFayette Sun County Board discusses sites for Vocational School
Two possible sites for the proposed Chambers County Vocational High School were presented to the Chambers County School Board Friday December 20, 1974.

The sites were presented by representatives of the Valley Chamber of Commerce, one being on property adjacent to the Southern Union State Junior College on Langdale- Huguley Road and the second near the proposed City of Lanett Industrial Park. A third site for the school has been proposed near the new LaFayette By-pass.

Vince McDonald, who was spokesman for the chamber of Commerce group asked that the school board take into consideration the population centers of the county before making the final decision.
He pointed out that the most students who would participate in the vocational school would come from the Valley area.

The Carnation Club held its Annual Christmas Affair in the home of Mrs. Carrie E. Brooks.
A delicious turkey dinner was served with all the trimmings. The dining room was covered with a lovely red table cloth with lace.

Gifts were exchanged by the club sisters and friends. The group socialized for about an hour then dismissed. it was certainly a treat to get to chat with one of our instructors, one of our very own, Miss Effie Wheat.

She was an instructor at Alabama State University, Montgomery, before retiring. I must say she was as lovely and entertaining as ever.
