Carver Recreation Center to host community picnic in honor of Langston Reunion group

Carver Recreation Center, 322 W. Watauga Ave., will host a community picnic on Saturday, July 2 from noon-4 p.m. in honor of the Langston Reunion, a group of former Langston High School students who gather every two years.

At the picnic, three of the former elementary schools that were feeder schools to Langston High School will be recognized: Dunbar Elementary School (currently the Grace Temple Eternal Life Center), Douglas Elementary School (currently used for the Rise Up! Afterschool Program), and Booker T. Washington Elementary School (currently known as Jonesborough’s McKinney Center). 

The late James Rollins, a former bus driver who brought students from Jonesborough to Langston, also will be recognized.

The community picnic will includes free food, door prizes and games for the entire family.
