Couriering this area this week in 1984 — 37 years ago:

Clemmons Masonic Lodge No. 755 will construct a new temple in Clemmons. Construction is projected to begin sometime late next year. According to Larry Kirby, senior warden of the lodge, two acres of land were purchased at the north corner of Stadium Drive and Cook Avenue on May 7. All the money to pay for the land was raised by the Masons, he said and the lot is paid for completely. The Clemmons Masonic Lodge No. 755 was instituted on Nov. 3, 1978, and chartered on May 5, 1979. There are 39 charter members, including 33 Master Masons. The Lodge currently has 82 members.

Reid Owen Whitehead, 18, of Clemmons, received the Eagle Scout Award from the Boy Scouts of America on Aug. 12 at Ardmore Baptist Church. Whitehead, a member of Troop 718 sponsored by Ardmore Baptist Church, is the son of Mr. and Mrs. James M. Whitehead of Clemmons. Whitehead’s Eagle Project was the construction of 20 bluebird houses. He mounted them in Tanglewood Park, spending about 135 hours on the project.

The steering committee of the Friends of the Clemmons Branch Library held a reception at the new library last Sunday. Seventy-two people signed up to join the Friends, and about 175-200 people toured the facility. The committee pitched in and provided refreshments for the visitors. Sharon Zaffuto coordinated the purchase and baking of cookies, brownies and candies. Her daughter, Margie, served up the punch.
