The Fincastle Library received an interesting phone call recently. They have submitted the following to the Botetourt view.
Diane Hennessy was walking near the San Clemente Pier in San Clemente, California. She found a woman’s class ring in the sand. Diane took the ring to a jewelers to be cleaned and she thinks it is from Lord Botetourt High School. The date appears to be from 1937, but perhaps it is 1987 as there was no Lord Botetourt at that time. The initials inside the ring appear to be VEJ.
So the question remains, to whom does the ring belong and what is the story behind the loss. Hopefully this will have a happier ending than the last found ring story. Diane is willing to return the ring to the proper owner, should she be found. Contact Rebecca Smith Fincastle Library at 473-8339 if you might know where and to whom this ring belongs!
