Nov 21, 1979

The Treutlen County ARC raffled off a Grocery Run, and Tony Thigpen was the winner. A crowd gathered at Harrell's to watch the recipient gather all the merchandise he could load in a shopping cart in one and one-half minutes. After the scramble the cashier announced the total: $269.99!

Others that week: Banquets at the Community House for the Lions Club and the Sportsmen Club, football and basketball, program at TES.
