Potts Camp News
Potts Camp FD haunted house this weekend
A large crowd attended the wedding of Brittany Lynn Byrd and Ronald Wayne Huffman Jr. on Saturday, Oct. 15, at 3 p.m. at Temperance Hill Baptist Church. Congratulations to them!
We look forward to the Hill Country Picnic held every year near Potts Camp! I can sit on my porch and listen to the special music and also hear it indoor; all night long.
I am proud of my younger son, Dr. Danny P. Hollingsworth, who was inaugurated as 12th president of Piedmont College in Demorest, Ga., on Friday afternoon, Oct. 14. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to attend. He and wife Elizabeth have three sons in college, Luke, Lark and Jake.
We welcome Thelma Ford to our town! She lived in the country several miles from town with her late husband, who died last year. She moved here near two stepchildren.
The Potts Camp fire station held a haunted house two weekends.
Homecoming and Old Fashion Day was held at Potts Camp First Baptist Church on Oct. 23. No Sunday school was held.
Reids’ Gift Church’s usher board sponsored a salad dinner last weekend. The speaker was minister Kendrick Campbell and pastor Jerry Williams.
I’ll never forget the Dixie Theater we had in our town after the war. A man from Memphis brought one of the latest colored movies and showed it on a large colored screeen on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. One day my husband L.D. kept the children and let me go see “Gone With the Wind” (four hours). Charles Burris was the young boy who operated the projector and Willa Floyd sold the tickets.
I was late that day and was looking for a seat when they called my name. I had won the door prize, $10. I was happy.
Charles bought a motorcycle with his money. One Sunday afternoon, he passed our house really fast. My husband said, “He’s going to get killed,” and he did that day. It was sad. He was the age of my sister and brother, Ann and Lindy. We attended his funeral.
