Page 12 --Thursday, May 20, 2004 --- The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder Old Pisgah Methodist Church Homecoming, 2 p.m., Sun., May 30 A FOLK FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHT -- A Claude R. Kemper Scholarship Fund is being established by the old Tanner High School Alumni Association. Here in this newspaper file photo, the late Claude Kemper (left} shows his son, Ron, some finer points of the bird carving craft. And Claude was a master craftsman. Having grown up and living much of his life at Newberne near Tanner, the late Mr. Kemper, who was a noted authority on and wood-carver of birds, passed on at age 93 on January 7, 2004 in Florida. He was a 1930 graduate of Tanner High School, later graduating in agriculture and horticulture from West Virginia University and making an outstanding career using his knowledge of those subjects in several state and federal agencies. During his retirement at Newberne, he became a regular participant in the West Virginia State Folk Festival, exhibiting his collection, "The Birds of My Hollow," and sponsoring a popular bird identification contest for the general public. In announcing the Kemper Scholarship Fund Drive, Mr. FredRadabaugh, the Association's president and a Glenville State College Board of Governors member, states, The Claude and Ethel (his late wife) tradition will be kept up by his son and daughter-in-law, Ron and Lynn Kemper, who will also participate in the Folk Festival this June." In addition, the younger Kempers will be the main speakers at this year's Tanner High School Reunion at 12 noon on Sat., May 29 at the Gilmer County Senior Center, Mr. Radabaugh announces. Contributions in memory of Mr. Kemper can be sent to: "Tanner Alumni Association," Claude Kemper Scholarship Fund, c/o Rosa Belle Gainer, Box 12, Glenville 26351. (Editor's Note'. A complete set of his "Birds of My Hollow" collection can be viewed on the second floor of the Robert Kidd Library at GSC. Several years before his passing, Mr. Kemper made this outstanding gift to the College, as well as a permanent scholarship contribution to the GSC Foundation for a needy student.) Last week was National Nursing Home Week. Throughout the week we had several fun activities and numerous special guests who came to our home. Each day there were Senior Olympics and at the end of the week, all residents who participated received their ribbons and medals during our awards ceremony.
