County historical society announces plans
Today at Springtime Ellaville downtown our local historical society has a booth on the street in front of the City Park across the street from The Pizza Place. We will have the memorial and honor plaques for you to see. There will applications there if you would like to purchase one or more. You do not have to be a member or resident to make a purchase. When you purchase a plate it will placed on the plaques. Buy in memory or honor of your family, loved ones  or friends. These plaques will be hung inside the renovated Courthouse that we are all so proud of.
The historical society is in need of history to help us update our history book. A lot has happened in 36 years since the last history book was printed and we’ve gotten some older history since the last book was released. We don’t want your original copies; just make  a copy as well as pictures with all the details of family lineage.
For more information call me Nancy McMath Young 937-2116.
