We welcome Rose Beyke of Winslow as part of the team for this website.  Rose's e-mail is:  She is joining our efforts to provide some new changes to this website.  Actually for two reasons - 1 to keep the website going when I am no longer able to do it and 2 - hoping to expand it or as I like to think " Moving It Forward Into The Present.  We will continue with emphasis on Winslow Alumni, but that only went thru 1974 and NOW with Pike Central, we will continue it to the present and the future.  Next year in 2015 Pike Central will celebrate 40 years as a consolidated school.  In a short period, we hope to be placing some Pike Central Charger pictures on the web site and hope to inspire PC Alumni to follow the website and enjoy seeing the old photos. Many PC graduates and students come from parents, grandparents, aunts & uncles, brothers & sisters of Winslow Alumni. We also hope to attract all people of Pike County to become interested in our new direction.  With Rose Beyke, joining me, it is hoped to be able to extend the website further and into the future to keep it growing.
Little Known Honor for Winslow's Dick Farley:  Submitted by Hugh Schaefer, Basketball Historian, who has often provided this website with interesting basketball stories :  Back in 1949 and 1950 when Winslow and Terre Haute had outstanding teams, with  outstanding players, Winslow's Dick Farley, and Terre Haute having outstanding twins, Arley and Harley Andrews.  All of Indiana knew about these three outstanding players.  Four years later in 1954, there was a family that lived west of Farmersburg, IN in Sullivan county, Mr. & Mrs. Carter Drake. and also basketball fans that had triplet boys. who named their three triplets, FARLEY (for Dick Farley); ARLEY (for Arley Andrews), and HARLEY (for Harley Andrews).  Winslow and Farmersburg were in the 1954 regional but did not play each other.   This was a pretty big deal to have a baby named after you in this manner.  Sixty years ago this year.  Dick Farley was an alumni of Winslow High School in 1950 and also played basketball for IU and the Detroit Pistons.  
Old Photos of Winslow and old photos of class and school activities are always wanted for posting on this website.  If you have any you would care to share, please send me a JPG, GIF, PNG with details on it or send the actual photo, and I will return it to you.  Contact us at: or call 812-455-6998.  If you need my mailing address I will send it to you.
