The Fair Rides Are Rolling Into Town
Monday, 18 August 2014 13:09
Construction of the main stage for the Chattooga County Agricultural Fair started last week at the event site on Ga. Hwy. 100.
The stage, built by Smith Iron Works in Lyerly, will host a series of performers over the four days of the fair, which begins Thursday. It will be the first local fair in several decades.
“Things are coming along,” said Jimmy Holbrook of the fair’s planning committee. “It’s good to see folks getting excited.
Holbrook said there was a meeting on Monday with various organizations concerned with safety and traffic during the fair. Representatives of the sheriff’s office, police department, Georgia State Patrol, EMTs and other organizations were on hand for the planning session.

Church Spotlight: North Summerville Baptist Church
Sunday, 17 August 2014 22:32


The first Sunday Tom Russell preached at North Summerville Baptist there were only 35 to 40 members present.
Now 30 years later, that congregation has outgrown its former location and is looking toward adding to its current property at 119 Maplewood Drive.
"Our secret is God's presence," the pastor said. "We just go to worship."
The sanctuary seats up to 550 people and attendance for Sunday school is growing at such a pace that more room is needed.
The church is looking to build a two-story structure on the back of its property. It will also include a storage area.
Struggling to find space is one of those pleasant obstacles for a growing church. They experienced that several years ago when the church was once located on Scoggins Street.
