Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused last week, Mrs. Marie Thompson Rives, daughter of temperance pioneer Eliza Jane Trimble Thompson, was reading an account from The Union Signal of Nov. 16, 1903 when 500 delegates of the National Woman’s Christian Temperance Union made a pilgrimage to Hillsboro to pay tribute to Mother Thompson and the Hillsboro crusaders and visit the Mother Thompson home.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused last week, we were reminiscing how the big day had arrived in November of 1903 where a large delegate of the National Woman’s Christian Temperance Union made a pilgrimage to Hillsboro to march to pay tribute to Mother Thompson and the Hillsboro crusaders.

    Ladies and gentlemen, during our chat on the porch of the Mother Thompson Home, the friendship and admiration between Hillsboro temperance crusader Eliza Jane Trimble Thompson and fellow temperance pioneers Frances E. Willard and Lillian M. N. Stevens, both longtime presidents of the National Woman’s Christian Temperance Union, has become evident.

    Ladies and gentlemen, during my chat with the daughter of famous temperance crusader Eliza Jane Trimble Thompson on the porch of the Mother Thompson Home in Hillsboro, I realized I had not yet asked the daughter’s name – but it turns out I did not have to do so.

    Ladies and gentlemen, as I am chatting with the daughter of Eliza Jane Trimble Thompson on the porch of the historic Mother Thompson home, she mentions her parents’ “Golden Wedding” anniversary in passing.

    Ladies and gentlemen, as I sit on the porch of the Mother Thompson Home, chatting with the daughter of early temperance crusader Eliza Jane Trimble Thompson, I talk with her about the historic edifice.

    “The ‘sober after-thought’ of this great movement had crystallized into the ‘Woman’s Christian Temperance Union,’ and Mother’s temperance work now was the presidency of the Hillsboro Union, attending national and state conventions, a correspondence in all parts of our own and other countries with the temperance workers and the highest work her prayers for the cause and the laborers.”

    “I loved it so much I never stopped playing it,” Wooten said. “From the Clowns to semi-pro ball with the Goldsboro Braves, to softball, I played until it got to the point where the doctor said, ‘If you don’t stop playing, with that knee, you’re going to end up in a wheelchair.’ So after about two or three more surgeries on it — it’s bone on bone now, and I’ve got arthritis in it — I stopped when I was about 47, 48. I could still hit, but they’d throw me out at first base from the outfield, so it was time to go.
