Over the Christmas Holidays, friends of The Lilies Project invite you to come reminisce about The Gymnastics Shows that were held at Southeastern Stokes Middle School from 1973 through 1987. The Gymnastics Shows were legendary events that people still talk about today. Every spring most of the student body would put on a show for the entire community. It was a perennial favorite for well over a decade involving both the students at the school staff. The variety show included a wide range of outstanding acrobatic accomplishments to silly skits and choreographed dances to the latest pop music.
The gathering will be held on Thursday, December 27th, 2018 from 4 - 8 pm at Southeastern Stokes Middle School. The event will include a panel about the decade-plus event and chance to share your stories about the Gymnastics Shows. Old videos will be on display. We will begin planning for a spring performance event where the entire community is invited to showcase their talents. The event promises to be a fun way to reconnect with classmates during the holidays.
Prior to the December 27th event, The Lilies Project is seeking copies of your old video recordings of The Gymnastics Shows. So dig through your closets and see which years you have on hand. VHS tapes will be digitized and archived to make as many of the annual shows available to the community as possible.
If you have a story to share or any photos or videos, please contact Caroline Armijo at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-358-5057.
