YOU ARE THERE - October 23, 1985

Cheryl Phillips and Cathy Brinson were Homecoming Queens.

Mr. and Mrs. Julian Wade of Millen celebrated their 50th anniversary.

The Boosters Club cleared $1,200 with their spaghetti supper.

Judge Phil West spoke to the Sportsman's Club; John Brewton, President.

The Goat Man's Friend
PSC Commissioner Billy Lovett celebrated his affiliation with the Georgia Republican Party.

The Vikings beat Toombs Central, 60-0.

C. G. Foskey grew three sweet potatoes ranging from 7 to 9 pounds.

The festival promotional tabloid circulation grew to 100,000, distributed to Treutlen and 23 surrounding counties.  

The advertised Goat Man was a no-show. We learned later that he had been mugged in California while on a visit to his friend Morgan Fairchild.   He had mentioned their friendship during the 1979 festival.   I never doubted him after seeing how women reacted to him while we were having breakfast at Ma Hawkins Restaurant on the way from his yellow bus home north of Jeffersonville to the Soperton festival grounds that Saturday morning.
