Remember When

–This Date in 1958!

Jenkins County has again been honored by having had named as one of the 11 Master Farm Families of Georgia for 1958, the E.S. Gay Sr. family of the Norwood section of our county. The Emory Gay farm could truthfully be called a “family farm” since his two boys are busily and happily engaged in the diversified farming operation. A dinner in the family’s honor is to be held at the Millen Community House on Tuesday.

Millen Furniture Company advertises “Whirlpool Automatic Washer” for $249.95 or $3 per week. R.H. Barefield and R.M. Reese, owners.
