As reported 50 years ago in the pages of The Columbia News, Thursday, Jan. 27, 1955:
Cub Scouts visit
Ninety-six Cub Scouts, composing three Augusta dens, arrived in Harlem and Grovetown on the No. 1 Georgia Railroad train Saturday and visited the two towns until No. 2 carried them back to Augusta. Of the Cubs, 36 stopped in Grovetown and the remaining 60 came on to Harlem, bringing their lunches with them.
Mrs. R.G. Hanna of the Harlem Women's Club served as hostess to the group and took them out to the clubhouse, where the heat was turned on and there were tables for the spreading of the lunch. There was plenty of food to satisfy their healthy appetites, and plenty of fun while doing so.
Directors and special committee members of the Columbia County Game and Fish Club met in Appling on Friday night, Jan. 14, 1955, to study plans for a game club building to be built on the Clarks Hill reservoir.
After much discussion and study on the proposed building plans, the committee adopted a resolution to recommend to the entire membership of the Columbia County Game and Fish Club a building program that would cost approximately $10,515.
