Just wanted to say hi. I grew up back in the 70`s in Catlett and moved to Warrenton for my teenage years, then on to Bealeton and Remington. Then left the state due to couldn't make a good life unless I worked in Manassas or god forbid D.C. I miss Roy Rogers Restaurant I`m sure it`s not even there anymore. I had lots of good times working there Hanging out at The Armory with sgt. Horn and everybody, and at the Rappahannock River. Is the island still there? I have so many memories in Warrenton. My mom and I would have breakfast at the diner every monday, She`s gone and the diner probably is too. Can`t say I miss Fauquier high. But I`d love to come and visit Fauquier county sometime, maybe I will.

I've been here since 87'. Roy Rogers is gone, the county now has 3 high schools (both of my kids went to Fauquier HS, and the Diner is still here. We eat breakfast there almost every Saturday. I don't know anything about the island. My daughter moved from Warrenton to Remington, and now lives in Bealeton.

hi, thanks for the info. i left in 94. they were done building the new high school in bealeton, i went to fauquier (class of 88) and it was crowded. but 3 high schools? there must be a lot of people living there now. glad the diner is still there. you know my mom told me when we first moved to catlett in 72. the diner was jut about the only business on that road. The island is under a bridge between bealeton and remington, if i remember right it`s kelly`s ford. I lived in marsh run trailer park for a while, thats why i cannot stand the thought of tap water to this day. thier wells were contaminated. and over the corner deli in remington. well thanks for letting me share my memories with a complete stranger!:)
