Will, I remember Mays too - 15
07/11/01     Cindy Graham Roemer  (1966)      cindyr.tso@erols.com
Mays was that place on the side street, where all the factory workers ate. One time there was an assembly going on, so Robert Turner and I decided to skip and go to Mays for a couple of hotdogs, etc... Right when we were ready to sink our teeth into those epicurean delights, Cathy Lassiter came blasting in the door to advise me to sneak back into the auditorium, because I was getting ready to be tapped into the National Honor Society, and my mother was in the audience. I still don't think my mother knew what was happening five minutes before I was called up on stage.

Re: Will, I remember Mays too
Yep, C.G. Mays owned the place. He lived down past Carlise School in Irisburg. My cousin sent me a newspaper article where C.G. Mays had died this past year. I use to go to May's in the morning before school started. He had the soda fountain that he mixed the syrup into the carbonated water... it was gooooood. I use to go there in the morning before school and by a "Box" of Sweet Tarts from him for $2.40. There were 24 servings in a box. I would sell them at school for a $.25 a piece and make me some "Big Money." I would end up spending it back at Mays on my way home. He was a better business man than me.

I went to the old school in the 8th and 9th grade. It was a great place with a lot of great memories. I vividly remember as a young kid, 7 or 8 years old, going to the football games and basketball games. It is neat to look back at the yearbooks listed and see all the people that were football stars or cheerleaders when I was a little kid. It was a wonderful time watching the Mighty Big Red on Ben Ramsey field.

Take care and Go Dogs!

Take care.

Sounds like you probably inhaled the hot dog, Cindy. Hope there wasn't any mustard or ketschup showing.
