The amount ultimately inflated to $1,300. The Friend-Aid board consisted of Ziegler, Brewer, Boyette, Terry Walker Rose and Lynn Caddis Brown.
Beverly Malpass Brewer, center, with her sister Cindy Malpass Nance and Nance’s husband Bill during the recent friends reunion, held to reconnect with old friends from high school, while giving to a good cause. It was held at the Coharie Country Club.
The friends reunion was for those who attended Clinton City Schools and Sampson County Schools in the 1970s or thereabouts. It featured half and half tickets and a T-shirt sale, the proceeds from which was donated to charities, including Backpacks for Buddies, Friend-Aid and to a local teacher who educates special needs children.
Fun was had by all at the reunion, with Beverly Malpass Brewer hopes will become an annual event. Friend-Aid, one of the beneficiaries, is a group of ‘friends helping friends,’ organizers of the reunion said. They identify friends around the Clinton and Sampson County area that could use a little help and try to assist them.
