Thoughts of Rock Springs Park Spark Facebook Reunion

According to an article by Stephen Huba, which ran in the East Liverpool Review on Saturday, July 7, 2012, it was memories of Rock Springs Park which led to the creation of a Facebook Group and reunion. The group, dedicated to memories of Chester and Lawrenceville in West Virginia, held their first annual get-together at the old Chester High School gym and cafeteria on the same day the article appeared. Group founder, Vicki Robinson Jordan, of Chester, was quoted as saying “It started with a memory of going to Rock Springs Park every chance I got." The event dubbed "Take Me Home Country Roads 1st Annual Community Reunion" included a meet-and-greet, cover dish dinner, a sock hop in the gym, a 50/50 drawing and a Chinese auction, in which one lucky fellow walked home with an Images of America: Rock Springs Park basket.
