1975 Labor Day Wildwood Lake Draining

75 0903 03a,b
September 3, 1975

There were about 200 people in the water and 2000 on the banks at the draining of 300 acre Wildwood Lake. Keith Gillis of Swainsboro drug out a big garfish.

Others that week: Howard Cochran was ready for his first Treutlen game. The Vikings lost to Montgomery County, 34-0. Cheerleaders, too.

Bill, this reminds me of fond times. We did this one October, and I was never more tired. I slept from 8:00 on Saturday night past lunch on Sunday.
