YOU ARE THERE - August 20, 1980

James Kight celebrated his 10th birthday with a party at the Church of Latter Day Rain.

Rev. and Mrs. J. A. Kight celebrated their 66th anniversary.

Jackie Cammack was honored with a Sweet Sixteen Party.

Windsor continued with Charles Ricks's tales of old Soperton.

Ricks compared the camera industry with the auto industry, both of which were going Japanese.

Slow Pokin' wrote about Carter's win and the Kennedys still sulking. Ted's only chance of becoming President was to hold Carter to one term, which he did, but the people chose Reagan ahead of the ultra-liberal Kennedy.

Work began on the tennis courts at the recreation center.

Daisy Sammons submitted 1935 pictures at Cross Roads School.

Truckload of pigs parked downtown, squealing loudly at 2:30 a.m., and I remember it well. Oh, the joys of living downtown!
