Flag pole erected in memory of Coach Stone
By MARY R. MINOR
A 50-foot flagpole and flag has been donated to the Potts Camp Town Park by the former Potts Camp Booster Club.
Dedication services were held Saturday, June 25, with Rodney Whaley presiding.
The flagpole was dedicated in memory of T.M. “Coach” Stone, who was the originator and organizer of the Potts Camp Park Booster Club in 1991. The original group consisted of 20 men who recognized a need to become involved in the lives of children and to raise funds for the park.
The park was completed in 1990. During the tenure of the Booster Club, numerous improvements were made to the park, mainly through fund-raisers.
On hand for the dedication were members of the Park Boosters as well as family members of Coach Stone – Mrs. Annie Ruth Stone, Gale, Tommye Ann and Patrick Goode, Mitch, Jeanette and Emily Stone, and Pebble Gadd.
Also attending were Mayor Ricky Lesure, aldermen Mary Houston and Wanda Love, as well as other interested citizens of the town and surrounding communities.
