Teen Town plans to reopen after hiatus
After a four month layoff, Teen Town will resume in the Martinez Community Center on Sept. 12.
During a board of directors meeting for the organization that met last weekend, it was determined that Teen Town is a "must" in the community. The board of directors for the Martinez Community center includes Ware Norris, chairman; Cora Jones; W.E. Lamm; and Sgt. Wayne Hawn.
Sgt. and Mrs. Hawn will lead the activity that begins at 8 p.m. and ends at 11 p.m.
The activity will be a dance in which teenagers from 12 to 18 are invited to attend. A jukebox will be used Saturday, but live bands are planned for future events. Games and contests will also be offered.

A goal of $17,500 was set by the budget committee of the local United Fund for the Columbia County United Fund Drive.
Ethelyn Lucky, chairman of the drive, said funds are beginning to come in from Fort Gordon and Savannah River Plant.
