Last I heard, (at LEAST 5 years ago) they were still in.

Beths parents James and Jan Faulkner are still in Charlotte and are listed in the white pages.

Beth and I shared an apt. in Charlotte prior to her marriage to Jim.

1974: Charlotte

A wasted summer for sure. We did manage to con three poor souls into sitting through the class on tape, an excruciating experience. As boring as VP is on film, he's a real snooze fest on reel-to-reel.

How many years did they keep that program going?

I think they did it one more year .. in 1976 ... but I decided to take that summer off ... got a lot of flak from Mick** Mahaff**, the College Ambassador coordinator, on that one, but I stuck to my guns ... enjoyed it fully ... and we did get TWO people into the class that summer in my hometown ... just by hanging out with them and having fun ...

I thought the Mayor of Asheville was a woman. Mickey was a rising star in TWI in NC from the time he first took PFAL.

Toad Friend,

In response to your question.

1973...Kinston

1974...Wilson

Mickey Mahaffey is NOT the mayor of Asheville ... he IS an activist for the city's homeless, public transportation, and pollution issues. I googled him and checked out a few of the links to make sure it was him, and it was. One of the articles indicates that he ran for mayor in a grassroots campaign a couple of years ago, and got 1,000 votes.

If you are interested in reading about him, google him.

TLB, try to make sure your information is accurate before you post it. It only took me about 30 seconds to find out that he is not the mayor of Asheville.

Dear TF, I should have checked my facts. I knew Mickey was running for mayor 2 years ago and that he was in politics. Sorry about the confusion. Thomas Loy Bumgarner

Do any of you good folks from N.C. know Mel Raines?...He was my WOW brother back in 1976...I tried "friend finder" to no avail...Just thought I'd ask. B)

I knew Mel Raines when I was in college in Chapel Hill. He was in our Twig; he lived outside the town in a mobile home ... great guy. I later ran into him at his home when I was in the 13th Corps ... just to show how much of a blur those witnessing weekends in the Corps were, I can't remember if his home was in the Denver area of Colorado or the Oklahoma City area of Oklahoma ... but I think it was one of the two ... try the Yahoo People Search for him in Colorado and Oklahoma and see what you find ...
