In this final segment of our talk with Bobby Waid, Mayor of Fincastle, Bobby talks about how the parish finally began to grow, and of their decision to pay back the diocese the money they had borrowed to build the parish house ( back in 1966)… He then expressed his gratitude for being invited to give this talk.
We would also like to think Bobby for his time, and for allowing us to video tape this interview.
I moved to Asheville, NC last September and have found some wonderful new opportunities for teaching, researching, and learning. I'm training to be a tour guide at the Thomas Wolfe Memorial, teaching classes at a senior center (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute - at UNC-A) and developing a digital archive for Sweet Briar College, recirculating some of the excellent articles that have been published in alumnae magazines from decades ago. So much to do!
