The D.M. Luke Bible Class of Evans Baptist Church gathered used toys from the area and restored them. The toys were distributed to less fortunate families throughout Columbia County.
New editor named
Josie H. Dozier of the Winfield community was named managing editor of The Columbia News. Helen Paschal, former editor, suffered a broken hip in a fall early in December and was unable to continue her duties with the newspaper.

Approximately 590 new phone directories have been delivered to homes and businesses that subscribed. This is more than in previous years. Subscribers should discard the old directories, as some of the information may have expired.
A community supper was held Dec. 20, 1954 at the Josie Dozier Community House in Winfield with more than 100 attending. The menu consisted of mostly homegrown items including turkey, dressing, cranberries, fruit salad, peach pickles, cucumber pickles, spiced apples and plain cake with orange icing.
