YOU ARE THERE - September 24, 1975

81% of the voters endorsed the $35,000 per year county subsidy for the hospital.

Charles D. Driggers of Vidalia was arrested for killing deer out of season just off GA297 in Treutlen County near the I-16 construction.

Murphy McRae wrote a letter to Labor Commissioner Sam Caldwell suggesting that he do something for the working people instead of the deadbeats.

Renee Wright and Lisa Hackle were just as tough as the boys in the Elementary Football League.

Chuck Ellington presented his speech "Spirit of '76 - Our Heritage" to the Lions Club Ladies Night.

Beta Club initiation put the students in costumes suitable for Halloween.

A "Treutlen Scrapbook" picture made in 1913 was made available by R. I. Rutenberg.  It showed new farm equipment arriving on Main Street for Soperton Hardware. The two-story bank building was finished but the lot next door was empty. There was another gap next to today's Soperton Pharmacy. The town well stood in the dirt street in line with the alley.
