May 2, 2024:  Thanks to Sam Moss for sharing news involving a memorial for Walt Leonard (Walt died in 2019) 
 A cabin at a Boy Scout camp in Georgia has just been built and dedicated to Walt.  Mike Morgan has a thoughtful reflection of Walt's impact that is included in a brochure about the cabin.  (I will try to get a more clear photo of the brochure)




April 25, 2024:  Keep scrolling to see more recently added entries

 

Thanks to J.T. Martin for this picture.  This group meets regularly at various WS restaurants.  From left:  J.T. Martin, Danny Wooten, Regina Hoover, Teresa Myers, Nancy LaPrad, Debbie Coe Deatherage, Carol Mason, Karen Sapp, and Marilyn Reid   2024

Thanks to Karen Pinnix for sharing this April 2024 picture of Linda Stokes, Sharon Fernandi, Karen, and Monika Vest.  This is from the 19th luncheon of a few of the members of the IMG crowd (Implementation Management Group)

 

 April, 2024:  Congratulations to Diane Bacon on her Feb. 6, 2024 retirement.  She started with the bank in June 1980.  44 years of loyal service is quite an achievement!   
 

"He heals the brokenhearted, and binds up their wounds"  Psalms 147:3


 April 2024:  Too many of our Wachovia families need prayers.   In Memory albums have been added for retirees Lynn Tierney, Bob Shoffner Lisa Stowe, Dick Snelsire, Barry Grogan, Gordon Upchurch Kay Mansfield, Linda Butler, Cheryl Clipperton, and Ed Sopp.        See the In Memory link.  

April 25,2024:  

As you may recall, a condolence notice was posted in late Dec. 2022, or in early Jan. 2023 sharing the somber news of the Dec. 26, 2022 death of Don  Preston's beloved wife, Susan.    Susan also  worked for Wachovia, ( it's where she and Don met)  At the time of her death, I failed to create an In Memory album for her.     Prayers for Don then, and now are welcomed.

It was just learned that Sandra Addington passed awy in October 2023.
 

     

 April 2024:   It was great seeing Ron Black in Fitz on Main recently.  I tried uploading his photo here, but it wouldn't post correctly.  It has been added to the Fitz/Wachovia photo album in the Photo Gallery link. (left of homepage). 

 

 


March 14, 2024:  Long time friends catching up at The Varsity- Paul Boone and Thad Harrington

Jan. 29, 2024:  Thanks to Jack Meckler for forwarding this advertisement which was in the Wall St. Journal in the late 70s.  This is one of a series of full page ads Wachovia ran in the Wall St. Journal featuring sketch portraits of managers of various corporate services that were offered to corporations.  This ad represents Cash Management,  featuring Bob Fentress. 

October 4, 2023:  It was just today that I came across a Sept. 2022 event honoring our very own Virginia Hepner.   What a great honor !  Congratulations Virginia on your dedication and many contributions to the Atlanta community.   Click below:
