Here's some new, yet OLD news.  Thanks to Bob Edwards for forwarding info on a 1991 race that involved a # of Wachovians.

Attachments: Runner Bob Edwards, and a group picture of Wachovians that ran in the Peachtree 10K, July 4th, 1991,

Bob provided the following comments:

...

. A bus load of Wachovia Runners from WS, and other cities, joined in with a group of Wachovians in Atlanta (1st Atlanta)

The best part of the race was when it was over. I have never been so darn hot in my life. There were over 40,000 runners! It took us 30 minutes to get to the starting line after the race started. We ran 6.2 miles across Atlanta and had to ride "Marta" back to the starting place. It was one heck of an event and we had fun. Don't remember the names of all Wachovians on the bus.

 

May 27:  Many thanks to Joe Thomas for sharing this photo, and caption. 

Enjoyed dinner with Bob and Sally McCoy last night at Farmington Country Club to celebrate (in advance) his 80th birthday. Very fortunate to have his friendship and advice over 25 years at Wachovia, FSVC and Hovde Private Equity Advisory Board. I hope to have his energy and intellect at 80!

 

  Congratulations to Diane Black on her recent retirement.  Diane joined the bank in 1984, and retired April 6 , 2018 from Investment Banking Mergers & Acquistions.

 

  (109 N. Main St., Kernersville)

  heart  In April 2013, I began an 'after WB job at a popular diner in downtown Kernersville,  Fitz on Main.  Fitz is a great (but small - very small) restaurant located  in beautiful downtown Kernersville.     My regular days are Mondays, Tues. Thurs & & Saturdays--but I fill in often on Wed & FridaysHours are 7am-1:30pm.  Bring yer cash coz we don't accept cards or checks.  You won't need much cash - the most expensive item on the menu is 5 bucks!    When you visit - and for those of you who don't know me - please introduce yourself.  And then be prepared for a photo op.  I've recently (March 2017)  started a Fitz on Main album in the Photo Gallery made up of Wachovia visitors. .  Open the link to find out who has enjoyed a Fitz experience!
