Quite a summer for sendoffs by family

After seeing off two of their four children in summer weddings, Carol and Dave Grantham recently sent off son Steven to a decidedly different destination: Marine boot camp in Parris Island, S.C.
The 25-year-old is a Manatee and University of Central Florida alum.

Speaking of Manatee alums, the Class of 1967 has expanded its 45th reunion to include the classes of 1966 and 1968. The fun begins with a meet-and-greet Sept. 28 at the Courtyard Marriott. On Sept. 29, there’s a dinner buffet at the Bradenton Country Club.
Contact Sue Moran Robertson at 941-776-8330. Or Linda Norwood Kinnan at 941-795-6213.

Manatee Elementary’s staff and students are collecting canned foods items for the Food Bank of Manatee through Sept. 28. They may be dropped off at the school ol office, 1609 6th Ave. E., Bradenton.
For details, call Bernadette Pletcher at 741-3319, ext. 2015.
