Hello everyone,

Gerry Mitchell sent some photos of the old Meadow River Lumber Company, the Rainelle Department store being torn down, the King Coal Hotel being torn down and the big block of coal, a copy of a commencement. You can see some of them at: http://www.photoworks.com/share/shareLanding.jsp?shareCode=A53D1F1BFF7&cb=PW and others of a Rainelle gas station http://www.rainellereunion.com/images/history/GASSTATION a Shay Engine photo http://www.rainellereunion.com/images/history/THESHAYENGINEPICTUREBYLOCALARTISTREDUCED.jpg and two photos of the Rainelle Department store being torn down http://www.rainellereunion.com/images/history/TEARINGDOWNRAINELLEDEPTSTORE-HARDWARE,OFFICEGONE-1988.jpg and http://www.rainellereunion.com/images/history/TEARINGDOWNRAINELLEDEPTSTORE-VIEWFROMACROSSHIGHWAY-1988.jpg

Photos of the Rainelle Department store sign are in Gerry's possession - see or http://www.photoworks.com/share/shareLanding.jsp?shareCode=AB87392C060&cb=PW (Photoworks) or http://www.kodakgallery.com/I.jsp?c=u46feyk.12ecco5s&x=0&y=-udrhmu

You can right mouse click on photos to save them to your hard drive or you can write to GERRY or me for the originals. You can also order prints from Photoworks for 15 to 19 cents each.

Andy Aide Pendleton sent this very nice link to numerous Rainelle photos on the Rainelle Memory Project. http://www.wvculture.org/history/wvmemory/photoresults.aspx?Per=&Topic=&Geo=rainelle&Col=&Words=rainelle&Op=AND&NumRec=50

I hear that Tink Collins can probably help us a lot also. Speaking of Tink, Gerry Mitchell and Tink were winners of the Greenbrier County Science Fair in 1963 and 1964 - see newspaper photos at Photoworks http://www.photoworks.com/share/shareLanding.jsp?shareCode=A204382C061&cb=PW or Kodak Gallery http://www.kodakgallery.com/I.jsp?c=u46feyk.ev2wz1s&x=1&y=4ncvtw This will also be posted on the Class of 64 page.

Check back for more photos and images under this topic/thread. Dale

Hello everyone, I have uploaded some photos that I hope you will enjoy. I had Staples (office supply store) scan several pages of a Class of 64 yearbook and also scan some very nice photos that Virginia Meadows sent of a recent Rainelle reunion. Staples saved the scanned photos to a CD for me. (Virginia Meadows is wonderful about taking photos and cataloging events.)

If any other classes wish to place their yearbook photos online, please take them to Staples, Kinkos or another office supply place, ask them to scan them to a CD and send the CD to me -- or upload them to Photoworks.com, Kodakgallery.com or Walmart's photo page and "share" the link with others on this discussion board or send the link to me and I will place it on the board.

Gerry Mitchell had warned me that the yearbook photos did not scan well for him. As you will see, there are some patterns ingrained into the photos. However, they are still fun to view. The reunion photos came out well.

I have copies of the scans of the class of '64 yearbook and the reunion that are approximately 35% larger. If you want a digital copy of any of them, let me know and I will e-mail them to you.

I will probably also put the photos on the final Website. However, in the interim, you can save (using right mouse clicks) or print from here or order print copies from Photoworks.

The Photoworks slide show has several options, e.g., a larger view of the photos, different speeds or you can simply view them one at a time. I hope you enjoy them.

Andy Aide Pendleton sent a booklet with the first reunion photos. I am having it scanned now and will upload it next week.

Dale

Rainelle Class of '64 Yearbook Photos - Update - 3-14-06 - Gerry has scanned additional photos from the '64 Yearbook, plus has improved the existing ones considerably. (I had a service scan the initial ones - Gerry's are much better.) http://www.rainellereunion.com/64.html

Gerry Mitchell sent some very nice scans of watercolors / paintings done by artist Jeanne Brenneman of Rupert - http://www.jeannebrenneman.com/ Visit her Website and see her work - it is very impressive. Jeanne has graciously given us permission to scan and display her work.

Four of the Rainelle area photos can be found on Photoworks http://www.photoworks.com/share/shareLanding.jsp?shareCode=A292BD1C00E&cb=PW Another, Rainelle Methodist Church, can be found here http://www.rainellereunion.com/images/history/RainelleUMethChurchA.jpg

Thank you, everyone, for your very nice comments and contributions. It is a real thrill to see the activity and to catch up on old friends. (By old, I don't mean in years. 60 doesn't seem old like it used to.)

Hopefully, some of my closest friends will keep some of the stories to themselves if they meet my daughters. Just kidding, comparatively speaking (to today's times), we were pretty tame.

Colin Lively and I got together last night in NY and had a wonderful discussion about some of the good times we Rangers had growing up. I will post a couple photos of our visit later.

Thank you, Harold Ivers, for sending a nice link - http://www.rainelle.org/History.html - a very nice history of Rainelle First Baptist Church.

Hello everyone,

Below is a link to the first Rainelle reunion booklet. The photos are a bit grainy, but are distinuishable. The originals are about 35% larger & I will be happy to send you one if you want a 35% larger digital/electronic copy of a photo(s) if you drop me an e-mail. Dale

Hello everyone,

Mary Carr sent a photo of the Class of '61 taken at the Fall Reunion in 2005:
http://www.rainellereunion.com/images/classmates/class_61_reunion.htm

Andy Aide Pendleton sent a photo of three close friends from the Class of '64, apparently taken in 1964 - see if you can figure out who they are:

We have a real treat. Gerry Mitchell, Class of 64 - now living in Ohio, went to great pains to take and prepare 2006 photos of Rainelle for those of you who don't get back often. That was very thoughtful of you, Gerry. Gerry also included two scans of paintings by Jeanne Brenneman, who is listed above. One of them is Rainelle High School:

If you see login fields, ignore them and click below where it says to view the photos without logging in.

Gerry has been very helpful and supportive in our efforts to get the board going. Thank you, Gerry!!

Gerry: Thank you for putting those photos of Rainelle on this website! I am deeply moved by the submissions to this site and all the wonderful pictures. I hope more and more people sign up - they are truly missing something great. God Bless all.

Hello everyone,

I had the scanning service I use (Staples) rescan the Reunion 1 booklet that Andy had been kind enough to send to me. Staples had initially scanned 2 pages at once despite my instructions to scan each page individually. Here is the Reunion 1 booklet scanned one page at a time. Staples still did not do a great job, but this did help with the clarity of some of the photos and they are much better than the first link I posted. I hope you enjoy them: http://www.photoworks.com/share/shareLanding.jsp?shareCode=AA1D8A1C02D&cb=PW

The prior version is located at: http://www.photoworks.com/share/shareLanding.jsp?shareCode=A2ADC52C018&cb=PW

If you want an original version of one of the photos, feel free to contact me. The originals are considerably larger. Or, you can save (right mouse click), print or order prints of the photos from Photoworks.

Thanks Gerry for the pictures that you took of what the ol' town looks like today. I really enjoyed them.
FYI (For everyone) as Dale pointed out earlier
http://earth.google.com is a truely great program and its free and
http://terrafly.com is another good progarm for aerial views.
If only earth.google had the resolution of the entire globe that it has for major cities. I especially like the tilt mode that allow you to fly over an entire area.

Rainelle looks the same from space as I remember it.
Gerry's pictures tell me something quite different.

Any ways, one question I have for here, what is the construction west of Sewell Creek and south of the rail road and sort of east of the now closed lumber yard?

Gerry Mitchell sent another photo - a parade photo from the 2nd reunion. His mother, Wenona Flint Mitchell Class of 38, is in a convertible with some others. Another photo was sent (I apologize - I have forgotten who sent it) is the Rainelle band marching in a parade in Huntington. Some of you may recognize some of those in the photos.

Gerry Mitchell is going to periodically improve photos and send them to be uploaded to the Website. Gerry is very good with photoshop and other image software tools. He has scanned and improved a 1964 band yearbook photo and a photo of the Rainelle band marching in a Huntington parade (year unknown.) I will add his scans to either Kodakgallery.com or Photoworks.com and periodically announce the updates. Both photo services reduce the sizes of photos. For example, a 1.4MB photo he sent was reduced to 98KB. If you want copies of the originals, please get in touch with Gerry at gerry.mitchell@rainellereunion.com

Update: Gerry has added a wonderful photo of the '64 Ranger football team. His original is 1.4MB in size and is high-quality. He has also added a scan of the homecoming queen and attendants and '64 basketball team.

These photos will generate very nice prints from Kodak.

Thank you, Gerry!!

Gerry:
Just viewed your scanned photos on Kodak Gallery. Very sharp and clear. Great job! Kodak Gallery works very well with my dial up ISP.
I right clicked on the Queen's Court photo and emailed to a classmate who couldn't remember a certain blonde. He had misplaced his yearbook over the past 42 years, so this will be great to take the place of his 64 RHS Yearbook. Thanks Gerry!!
