Class rings lost in Canton Lake since 1975 returned
Sisters Barbara Tewell and Shirley Petty were recently reunited with their class rings that had been lost in the lake since 1975.
One might wonder how not just one, but two, class rings were found and returned after decades in the lake.
It started in 1975 with a day at the lake. The two young ladies were headed for a swim and realized they forgot to take their rings off.

It was later discovered that there was a hole in his pocket and the rings were missing! They attempted a search with no recovery.
