Members, Visitors and Friends...

You are cordially invited to attend the annual meeting of the WDC at the Shannon Scout Cabin this coming Tuesday (Jan. 30th) at 6:30 pm.

The evening event will feature the Reverend Dr. Gil Watson. Dr. Watson is a retired United Methodist preacher who has made his home in our community on the Wayside Road. Watson, who is reported to be a “spell-binding” speaker and an avid history buff. His residence is actually an old historical building, disassembled, moved and re-assembled at his Wayside Road location. Added to the house, as a kitchen, is a log cabin which was the actual cabin from where the author, Joel Chandler Harris, told his famed Uncle Remus stories.

Dr. Watson’s subject, Tuesday Night, will be on the history of Morrison Campground. Watson is on the planning committee for this year’s celebration of the Campground’s 150-year anniversary.

Come be with us as we hear and record those local historical events of which have so richly contributed to this community’s great heritage.

Jack Dickey President, WDC
