Church publishes brochure of plans
Trinity Episcopal Church of Harlem has published an attractive brochure of its plans for the erection of a church on the lot donated to it by Mr. J.T. Barnesley.
The brochure says that kind consideration and gifts are asked for the New Trinity Episcopal Church in Harlem. The church was organized in January 1954 and was received into the diocese of Georgia May 12, 1954.
Columbia County farmers were honored at the Monday night meeting of the Harlem Rotary Club, which was well-attended not only by Columbia County farmers but by those from surrounding areas. There were 38 in attendance.
The occasion was planned especially to honor the "Farm Family of the Year" in Columbia County, Mr. and Mrs. Bass Crawford. A visiting Rotarian was Jack Martin of Augusta.
The speaker of the evening was L.W. Eberheardt, of the Georgia Agricultural Experiment Station in Athens, who spoke on the aid given to farmers by the Station, and other lines of particular interest to the entire group.
The committee who served the group was composed of the following members of the Women's Club: Mrs. Randolph Lamkin; Mrs. Walter Bell; Mrs. H.O. Hatcher, Mrs. George Walton and Marian Baughn.
