A group of Charlotte Central School graduates hosted a summer picnic to get together and reconnect. The 1970s class reunion was informally planned on Facebook. Forty students who had attended and/or graduated from CCS gathered at the town beach on Friday, July 7 for a pot luck picnic dinner. The primary organizers were Mary Jane Mack Gentes and Cheryl LaClair Martin. Friends gathered and enjoyed delicious food, conversation and laughter about memories of times spent at Charlotte Central. One attendee made homemade rolls as a tribute to Ethel Atkins, a mainstay at the school for years. Mrs. Atkins made fresh rolls each day and served them at lunch to the students!
