TVHS Homecoming deemed a success

On behalf of the TVHS Alumni Association I would like to offer sincere thanks to the following groups and individuals for helping to make the TVHS Homecoming 2018 a huge success.

First and foremost, thanks to Tom Wamsley for everything you did to make the weekend a huge success. You attended every meeting, hosted a hugely successful basketball tournament, and provided so much guidance throughout the year. Our committee could not have succeeded without you.

Secondly, I would like to thank the members of the planning committee who worked tirelessly from August 2017 through July 8, 2018. Your dedication is unparalleled. Steve Wamsley, Raymond Godwin, Cathy Jones, Melissa Walters, Ron Bartlett, Donetta Bird, Debbie Shaffer, Nora Lambert, Ann and Bill Vance, Ellen Fortney, Tammy and Clint Hamrick, and Lisa Townsend, you are all great leaders. Logan Comer, you are an extraordinary photographer. Blazin Barbeque, Samantha and J.B. Stalnaker, Bunji Elmore and Shane and the crew from the 1863 Bar and Grill all provided valuable services. Thank you.

Thank you to all 39 donors to the GoFundMe account. You successfully raised $3,085 to benefit TVHS.

Thanks to every business or individual that contributed an item to the silent auction. Contributors include Elkins Fordland, Bob Evans, Valley Steel, Crafty Creations by Ang, Steve Bodkins, C&J Restaurant, TVHS Boys Varsity Basketball team, Sun Your Bunz Tanning, Good Energy Foods, Byrd’s Donuts, Don Patron, 1863 Bar & Grill, Smoke on the Water, Voras and Lori Haynes, El Gran Sabor, Vintage Restaurant, Clinton and Tammy Hamrick, Elks Golf Course, Sue Smith, WV Mountain Trails, Margaret Vance, Canaan Valley Resort, Applebee’s, Serendipity Gifts, Camden Creek Primitives, Dairy Queen, Gandy Dancer Theater, Gino’s, Frankie’s Pizza, Dinah Taylor, Nora Lambert, Par Mar, Carolyn’s Custom Woodwork, Bill Vance and Jennifer Workman. Your generosity raised over $1,980 to benefit the high school.

Thanks also goes to the Tygart Valley Homestead Association members Tom Rennix and Lucy Proudfoot for helping make the Family Fun Day successful.

Also, the day would not have been successful without the help of Mount’n Taxidermy, Chad See, Chris Hamrick, James George, Nick Wamsley, Tom Wamsley, Steve Wamsley and Bob Lambert. In addition, Kaylee Halterman, Miss Tygart Valley’s Outstanding Teen, TVHS FFA Advisor Lee Wright, Aarin Smith Rose and other members of the TVHS FFA also contributed so much time to help us out.

The day would not have gone so well without your assistance.

Again, thank you to everyone, regardless of your contribution, you made the homecoming happen.
