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

The new Clemmons Alcohol Beverage Control store will open for business on Monday, Oct. 28, according to A. Horace Duedney, administrator for the Forsyth Municipal ABS system. The 4,ooo-square-foot brick building, which cost over $200,000, is ahead of construction schedule, Duedney said.  The temporary ABC store is housed in New Towne Center, a couple of blocks south of the new location, which is behind the Burger King restaurant.

The town of Lewisville will soon have an official town hall. Last Thursday night, the council voted to enter into a two-month lease from Tom Fowler for office space at 2550 Shallowford Road, adjacent to the post office. Marcia Elems, the interim council member who has been heading the search, said they will be renting three large offices in the building for $700 per month, which includes utilities.  Interim town manager Kent Mathewson has been working out of the community center. The council expects to hire a town clerk soon, and needs the office space for both people.

David and Mindy Mock of Lewisville announced the birth of their daughter, Ashley Elizabeth, on Oct. 2, at Forsyth Hospital. Maternal grandparents are Harold and Jean Lanning of Winston-Salem. Paternal grandparents are Phil and Jean Mock of Clemmons.

Herb Stephenson of Stephenson Crafts and Gifts spoke on “Arrange with Dried Flowers” to the Clemmons Garden Club on Oct. 10. Six club members participated in the Dixie Classic Fair. Mrs. W.C. McGee Jr. and Mrs. Donald Bingham attended the District IV convention in High Point. Mrs. Bynum Grant and Mrs. John Hunter were welcomed as new members. Mrs. McGee and Mrs. Dodd Linker were hostesses at the home of Mrs. McGee on Arden Drive

Country music star George Hamilton IV, a native of Winston-Salem, entertained at last Saturday night’s Stagecoach Restoration dinner. Some 70 people from the Clemmons Historical Society heard Hamilton’s delightful show, which was his contribution to help restore the Hattie Butner stagecoach. The 1872 stagecoach is on permanent loan to Clemmons from the Wachovia Historical Society, and is in the process of being restored to her former beauty. One door has been completed by a conservator in Maryland.

After sitting on top of the state’s 4A football poll for five weeks, the West Forsyth football team was literally booted out of first place by Greensboro Grimsley last Friday. The Whirlies, who claimed the 13-10 come-from-behind win, got several big kicks from Chris Leone who did his damage with a pair of field goals and a timely coffin-corner punt. Tailback Kevin Myers did provide the West offense with one bright spot. The Titan senior finished with 125 yards rushing on 19 carries.
