Couriering this area this week in 1991 — 30 years ago:

Friends of the Clemmons branch library’s annual book sale was another success, according to librarian Linda Hyde. “The sale raised $1,200,” she said, noting that that was about $200 more than last year’s total.

Terry and Mary Deakle, of Lewisville, announced the birth of their daughter, Courtney Skye, at Forsyth Hospital. Billy and Mona Swain of Clemmons announced the birth of a son, Graham Wesley also at Forsyth Hospital.

After a run-off for president, the new West Forsyth High School student body officers were finally chosen. They are Brain Coutts as president; John David Plyler, vice-president and Annah Boyer, secretary/treasurer.

Those in charge ordered a perfect day and that’s exactly what they got for the 24th running of the Tanglewood Steeplechase. Those dark clouds hovering in the distance stayed put and it was sunny skies and good times for the record crowd of party-goers, race fans and sports enthusiasts who attended.

Mark Edward Wylam, of Drumheller Road in Clemmons, was awarded a bachelor of science degree in sport management from Guilford College. Wylam has accepted a position with the Greensboro Monarchs Hockey Club as a sales/promotion director.

A group of Clemmons youngsters called The Village Kids, participated in the RegencyTalent Competition at Benton Convention Center recently. The drama participants were Colleen, Kathryn and Meghan Jenkins; Nicholas Broome; Lora, Emily and Becky Gibbs; Kristin Spence and Whitney Weber. Vocal solos were performed by Donna Jones, Colleen Jenkins, Brad Hudson, Stephanie Klapp, Fawn Quinn, Brook Davis and Carly Flora.

Chad Oxendine, West Forsyth’s No. 1 tennis player, signed an athletic grant-in-aid with Pembroke State last week. Oxendine, who recently finished 16-2 overall, said he chose Pembroke because of its up-and-coming tennis program and its low student-to-teacher ratio. This season, Oxendine helped West to a fifth-place finish in the Central Piedmont Conference standings. He is currently seeded fourth in singles for this week’s regional play.
