We Need Your Douglass. Riverview and South Central Kingsport Artifacts and Mementos

We are looking for your old neighborhood items to put on permanent display in the large display case in the V.O. Dobbins Sr. Complex.

If you've got:

An old picture of activities at Douglass High School;
Mementos of the school;
Band uniforms
Football and basketball jerseys
Football and basketball equipment and gear;
Band instruments;
Old sculptures that you may have made in a school class;
An old program from a Douglass event;
Or any other physical item from the Riverview neighborhood, including family items, church items and home items.

Please contact me ASAP. We want to have several items that you wouldn't mind donating for the permanent display. It's important to have several items to choose from, that reflect the mood of the neighborhood, the pulse of the community, and of course, the Douglass Tiger school spirit!

Let us know what you have, and please be generous. Also, do not be offended if something you want to contribute may not be the right kind of item. Remember, it needs to be something that appeals to the school and the neighborhood atmosphere. Dig into your attics and closets and let's create a display that will ring nostalgic, and remind us of our school and neighborhood togetherness.

Please contact us as soon as possible with your item (s) at:

Thank you!
