Harlem seniors return from trip
The graduating class of the Harlem School has returned from a trip to Washington and New York, reporting a wonderful time full of educational experiences. A new Trailways sightseeing bus was chartered for the occasion.
The group left early Tuesday morning and arrived back safely about 1 a.m. Sunday. Points of interest included Arlington Cemetery, the Capitol, the Bureau of Printing and Engraving and the White House. In New York, the sights included the Empire State Building, Radio City, Chinatown, and the United Nations building.
Class enjoys picnic
Mrs. Joe Hatcher's Sunday school class attended a "cookout camp" on Friday and Saturday of this past week.
Those who attended and enjoyed the occasion with their teacher included Don McAllister, Weldon Robins, Edgar Clary, Buddie Harrison, Charles Reeves, Frances Clary, Ann Cloud, Mildred Swift, Glenda Ellison, Vera Owens, Sandra Clifford and Nancy Silas.
Camp to open
Tanglewood, official camp for the Girl Scout Council of Eastern Georgia, will open June 26, 1955, and Day Camps for the Council will open June 20.
Camp Tanglewood is located 12 miles from Augusta near Martinez. This camp was formerly owned by the Augusta Council, but with the organization of the new Council of Eastern Georgia, the Augusta group turned over to the new council all of its facilities.
At Tanglewood girls live in screened cabins, six to a cabin, and the cabins are grouped in four units. The lodge is spacious with a large, open fireplace.
A screened porch off the main hall makes a delightful place for the girls to enjoy their meals. The camp boasts a new swimming pool, and has a lake that makes possible a variety of waterfront activities.
Frank T. Lanier, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Lanier of Martinez, was promoted May 16, 1955, to seaman, U.S. Navy, while serving aboard the attack aircraft carrier U.S.S. Oriskany.
