History with Holly: Julye Scheper Lerma

By Julye Scheper Lerma
What strikes me the most about growing up was our innocence and safety. Some things I remember: Always having lots of playmates from all over the Hundred Pines neighborhood; walking to school, without parents, and down the railroad track; Judy Chambers and Eileen Harvey’s summer school; having milk delivered to the back door; Christmas at the Chambers’ house while we waited, holding sparklers; swimming in the creek and mud fights; Julia and Sarah, the ladies who watched my brother, me and the Chambers’ kids. I had a wonderful childhood.

Beaufort Then & Now: This moment in Beaufort’s history is an excerpt from the book “Beaufort … Then and Now,” an anthology of memories compiled by Holly Kearns Lambert. Copies of this book may be purchased at Beaufort Book Store. For information or to contribute your memory, contact Holly at lowcountrymemories@hotmail.com or beaufortmemories@gmail.com.
