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
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
