Anyone reading this forum attend Cayce School? Any good memories to share? Does anyone remember Cayce Junction, Corky's Shell Station, Simpson Store, Fowler's Grocery, the post office, Sloan's Barber Shop, when trains ran thru Cayce, Lou Barnes Cafe, Wade's Beauty Shop?

Can't say I remember all of those places but I love the small town of Cayce as it is now. Got a nice country cafe, Gary Tuckers service station where you can get a quick oil change anytime, and of course CJ's Liquor. Some people might not like a liquor store being there but I think it's very nice having it. Not only can you get your beer, different liquors and lotto, but you can also pick up regular sodas and snacks. They also cook food there which I recommend, really nice when you want something quick.

I remember some of those things.....Fowler's and Simpson's grocery stores; the restaurant; Charlie Sloan's barber shop; Corky's Shell, Blocky Bellew's Texaco; and John Brown's Phillips 66. There was a beauty parlor in the building with Fowler's store.

That beauty parlor in the building with Fowler's was (?) Wade's Beauty Shop......she fixed my hair for prom and senior pictures at FCHS. Remember the old Methodist Church, i believe there were 2 before the present one, the Pentecostal church down behind Fowler's? Back in the day, the young boys "jumped" a train and rode it to Moscow on Saturday night to dances or went south to Jordan to dances at the school there. Later on, at Cayce School each grade would put on a play one night a year that everyone attended.

also remember that every year we would have a beauty review to raise money for PTA? Each class would choose a girl from their grade and the class who raised the most money won. I won when I was in 4th grade and Mark Cobb was my escort.

Yes I attended Cayce School 2 years before they closed the doors. I loved it there even though I only attended the school for only 1 year, but all my friends moved to my school after they closed the doors and we still remained friends it was so awesome. We used to get in that big tire that sat there in the front lawn up the hill and we stood it up and got in there and our friends would roll us down the hill towards 94 hwy. Ms. Ann was my 1st grade teacher at the time. She would always wear those silk scarfs around here neck. Troy Watts was my closest friend at that school. I haven't seen or heard from him since I left that school. What are they doing with the school now?

Even back in the 60's, they had summer baseball at Cayce. Families turned out to support the Cayce players just as they did during basketball season. The gym was always full and men sit on the stage.

It was a wonderful time and a great place to grow up.

I have you know that I am not inbred. I went on to cheer in high school and had high grades as well. I also attended college at UTM and have a great job at the same place for over 20 years.

Just ignore this idiot. He gets on topix with his putdowns just to stir up trouble. He has multiple names always using the name "hand" in it someway or other. Guess this losers hand is his/hers only companion.
