The Standard Journal - - LIFESTYLE -

The reg­u­lar monthly meet­ing of Euharlee Val­ley His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety was held at 7 p.m. Mon­day, Oct. 27, at 133 Mar­ble Street, Rock­mart.

Pres­i­dent Greg Gray wel­comed those present, in­clud­ing Don Tate, Vaden Un­der­wood, John Lay­field, Avary Wel­don, Wayne Gur­ley, Carol Crook, Laura Robin­son and Nancy Feek.

Gray pre­sented a re­port on the Oc­to­ber 11 Memo­rial Ser­vice. He said there is still op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase jelly. There are 11 dif­fer­ent fla­vors: Crabap­ple, Ap­ple, Grape, Apri­cot, Pear, Mus­ca­dine, El­der­berry, Red Wine, Honey Mus­tard, Zuc­chini Rel­ish and Black­berry.

Due to in­clement weather, the memo­rial ser­vice was held inside the church. Gor­don Jones, cu­ra­tor of the Ge­or­gia His­tory Cen­ter, and Rev. Scott Shep­ard were fea­tured speak­ers.

Ja­son Ward read Gov­er­nor Nathan Deal’s procla­ma­tion and Of­fi­cer David Ad­cock ac­cepted the plaque of ap­pre­ci­a­tion on be­half of Sher­iff Johnny Moats.

The group dis­cussed pric­ing for use of the church for a wed­ding or other spe­cial event.

Gray re­ported he has talked with Scott Fisher about an ar­ti­cle he is writ­ing on his­toric churches in Ge­or­gia.

In other business, the group dis­cussed a Christ­mas so­cial at a lo­cal restau­rant.
