On Wednesday, June 14, some of the children of Mr. and Mrs. Alton Adair were in town visiting the stores and some of their school friends they had at the Robert B. Jones High School. Those visiting were: James Earl Adair who graduated in 1958 and his wife; Gayle Adair graduated in 1959; Twila Adair graduated in 1962; and Elaine Adair graduated in 1964. They were having lunch at Soda Pop Junction. They visited Susie Hobbs Littleton at her business and visited with Judy Hewitt Roberts at Miss Judy’s Academy. There are two more Adair brothers: Milton Adair who graduated in the Class of 1961 and Wayne Adair graduated in the Class of 1963. Alton Adair had the Lynnville Barber Shop for years on the Lynnville square and he drove a school bus for Jones High School for several years and he also was Mayor of Lynnville for several years. The Adair Family were members of the Lynnville Methodist Church and sang in the church choir and participated in all phases of church work. Mrs. Adair was a Sunday School teacher at the Methodist Church. How good it was to see one of Lynnville’s nice families visiting their hometown and seeing their old friends.
