• Good memories, good times

    Indian Land Elementary School’s cafeteria was buzzing with laughter and long conversations as old friends gathered for the 2017 Indian Land alumni reunion June 25.
    The parking lot was packed as people arrived to bring in covered potluck dishes. J.O. McCorkle, an 80-year-old Indian Land native from the class of 1958, stood proudly by the tea jugs as people walked past him.
    “I made all the tea here,” McCorkle said. “So, if you want, you can just call me the tea-maker.”
