Another word: homecoming.
Two more words: Cave Spring.
Yes, our paparazzi photo crew was at Cave Spring’s homecoming last weekend. You’ll find a photo on the cover of this week’s print edition of SWoCo — and two pages of photos inside. But we took pictures of everyone who wanted to be photographed and we share them all online in this photo gallery – including this one of David Reeves, Areille Baba, Megan Merritt, and Corey Wright.
