BENNY BERRY, Alumni Celebrity of Old Stevenson High School

BENNY sang a Special Song called "WHEN THE TRAINS STILL RAN THROUGH DIXIE" using his own Guitar-Accompaniment.
The video which once appeared on YouTube, showed him leaning against the fence in front of The Old Stevenson Depot in Jeans & a Plaid Shirt.
I especially enjoyed this song, since I remember Benny as one of my students years ago when he was a student at Old Stevenson High School.
Too bad, that everything has become so regulated on the Internet that I can no longer link to the recording on YouTube!
Thanks for The MEMORIES, Anyway.....

A TRIBUTE TO J. T. Carroll Post Master at Stevenson, AL:

"God's Post Office" by Vance Havner

AT...

Our community lost a wonderful friend today, Sunday, July 21, 2013.
Mr. James Thomas Carroll (1921-2013)
Better known to most of us as "J.T. Carroll", Mr. Carroll served as Post Master in Stevenson from 1963-1988.
I found "God's Post Office" by Vance Havner at SERMON.NET a fitting tribute to Mr. Carroll.
He will be missed.

"Those attending enjoyed visits with old friends and met new ones. In 2009 many had breakfast at Friday's Restaurant on Saturday morning before the Festival Parade in Historic Downtown Stevenson! A well-attended "BINGO NIGHT" kicked off the celebration this year. Among the most popular events was the "Bug-Blast" in the beautiful Stevenson City Park. Pictures and more information about the "BUG-BLAST", Volkswagen Parade, and "BUG-CRUISE" for 2009 may be found at:

The traditional 'Pioneer Breakfast', a memorial to the late Philip Hall, serves as a yearly benefit for the 'North Jackson High School Band'. The Old Stevenson High School Band led the "Depot Days Festival Parade" until 1988, and the NJHS Band has graciously continued the tradition. The Armstrong Park,located near the Stevenson Post Office on land donated by the Kathryn Armstrong Estate, is a pleasant spot to relax, with its beautifully manicured lawn, sidewalks, park benches, and Gazebo with hanging blooming baskets. This newly designed downtown park area offers a welcome spot for gathering with friends and enjoying memories of "Historic Old Stevenson", or making new ones."
