sto^d in the pre-sunset on the bank of Bogue Sound for the ground breaking cere
mony of the Club House rf Pine Knoll Shores Golf and Country Club. Stan Brunt
introduced May^^r Redfield, Representative Ronald E^rl Mason, Ruth Bray, and Jake
Brooks, Rev, Dan Frederick, pastor of Shepherd of the Sea Lutheran Church, gave
the invocation. It was exciting as the total sincerity of the occasion was de
tected in all. It gave y?>u a feeling of being a part of the whole new life with
the expansion «f P.K.S.G.C. The ceremony itself was short and impressive as each
official set the shovel deep into the sand as what was known as the first tee.
As Ray Scoggins set his shovel in the sand, some smart cookie asked if he had a
permit. Your reporter knows the man well, and says God Bless Ray Scoggins, Some
great guys, 0, Flynn, Sarge, and Ken Foscue manned the charcoal fires for a de
licious barbecue, and the i^^ccasion was a complete, happy success.
