Morgan, of East Ronceverte, was the winner of a silver cup and the title “Miss Ronceverte,” after all had been eliminated but her and Miss Louise Waugh.

At Lewisburg on Tuesday evening, the title of “Miss Lewisburg” and a silver cup were conferred upon Miss Nancy Neale Coffman, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. C. S. Coffman, with Miss Virginia McClung, daughter of Sheriff and Mrs. James W. McClung, the final runner-up.

Miss Anna Lee, of Rainelle, bears the title of “Miss Rainelle.”

Meadow River Watershed Hosting Park Improvement Day

The Meadow River Watershed Association Inc. (MRWA) will host a park improvement day at Western Greenbrier Youth Park near Charmco on Saturday, June 12, from 10 AM – 2 PM.

In an effort to promote community involvement in the park, MRWA is asking local businesses, schools, churches and community groups to work a section of the park on park improvement day. Depending on the number of volunteers, MRWA plans to paint shelters, repair the restrooms and perform other necessary maintenance.

The MRWA will collect the names of interested organizations and will host a meeting to discuss which section each group would prefer and the MRWA plans to involve each group in the overall management of the park.
