Group purpose is "to learn, to share and to perpetuate family history." William T. Fuller, 276-623-3410 See CALENDAR, Page 8 Church and church-related activities calendar on page 3 by Jerry Couch The Dante Reunion is coming up on Saturday which means we're all thinking about that unique community, past and pres- ent. So...why don't we all travel back in time to June 15, 1967 and take a look at what was happening there during that week. Our time-travel trip is made possible by the fading, yel- lowed pages of the Clinch Valley Times. In those days, the Dante News was compiled for the Clinch Valley Times by Lorraine Cochran, a rising high school senior. Later, Lorraine became Mrs. Ike Turner and she served with distinction as a teacher, administrator, and ulti- mately as school superin- tendent of Russell County until her untimely death in 2010. Lorraine was just one of many Dante natives who have contributed and are contributing to our region. Over the years, hundreds of others have gone forth to share their work ethic, knowledge, and skills in every part of our nation. We have good reason to be thankful for them.
