Fond memories of fun times take us back to school

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

At Shelter Cove Towne Centre, to celebrate the back-to-school season, we asked “What was your best year in school, and why?”

Michelle DeJoie, Boston: “First semester of my sophomore year of college, because I wasn’t a freshman anymore, and I was pushing myself to do better.”












Charlie DeJoie, Boston: “Junior year of college. I got involved in a lot of clubs and other things and was very busy. That gave me good skills for what I do now as a lawyer.”













Zach Pulliam, Gainesville, Ga.: “Every year was a good year, because life is good always.”











Kelly Pulliam, Gainesville, Ga.: “Senior year of high school, because we had senior privileges, and we got to leave early.”












Ruby Vidik, Gainesville, Ga.: “Senior year of high school, because that meant I was getting out! But later I went on to nursing school.”
