Kay Shockley didn’t cry Friday night preparing for the Greer Oldies Reunion. But Jerry Bruce did, Shockley said.
And to think neither are alums – Shockley, Spartanburg High School, Class of ’67 and Bruce, (Blue Ridge High School, Class of ’72.
As two Greer High School classmates reminisced about the good ol’ days, they summed up what they missed most. “Everything.”
“I miss almost everything from those years, maybe not the TVs,” said Helen Claire Robinson Bagwell. She and Janet Jones Morrow, both class of ’56, were chatting during the hot dog lunch offered by Greer High School alum Don Wall, class of ’61.
Tickets remain for the free hot dog lunch that will be served to Greer High graduates, students and their friends at McLeskey-Todd Pharmacy at 109 N. Main Street between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday. Just ask the staff at the pharmacy counter for free tickets.
Don Wall, owner of McLeskey-Todd and two other independent pharmacies in Greer, and his son, Jed, general manager, are hosting the event to coincide with the Greer High Oldies reunion. Read the story of Don Wall's success as an independent here.
As Don Wall celebrates the 90th anniversary of the McLeskey-Todd Pharmacy he reflects on the near-extinction of the independently owned family drug stores. “A lot of people don’t grasp the meaning of it,” Wall said. “Being independent is a very rewarding aspect of what we do. It makes your heart feel good.”
Independent pharmacies have gone the way of community book stores – swallowed up by corporate America in chain grocery stores, big box superstores and branded drug stores that sell, among other things, food, hardware tools, clothing and cosmetics.
