President Hay to give report of convention
Covington Kiwanis President S. M. Hay will give a report of his recent trip to the Kiwanis International Convention at Los Angeles, Calif. at the regular weekly meeting of the Covington Club today (Thursday) at 1 o’clock at Legion Home.
Mr. Hay said that he will use a tape of convention highlights as well as his report of the convention and trip.
Rev. Owen Kellum, pastor of the First Methodist Church, Covington, was the guest speaker at the Covington Kiwanis Club meeting Thursday.
The speaker gave an interesting resume and review of the events leading up to the Battle of Atlanta, which occurred exactly 100 years ago. He outlined Sherman’s march in detail and described many strategic positions held by both Federals and Confederates in the July and August movements.
Visitors at the Thursday meeting include Werner Von Gruenhut of Oxford, who recently moved to our county to operate a dry kiln industry, and an inter-club four-some from McDonough – Paul Cates, D. P. Reevs, John Craig and Jack Cupit.
