Heritage Baptist Church - 8800 Rose Avenue.
The pop quiz went very well. At least a dozen members gave their spiel, telling us who they were researching, how far along they were, and what was holding them up. Not many photos, though. However, we expect to have another similar program, perhaps as early as June, so dig up those photos and come prepared.
The program for our next meeting will be a presentation by Don Wells, representing the Mountain Stewards, a conservation organization, out of Jasper, Georgia.
Don and his wife, Diane, have written a book, "Mystery of the Trees," about the mysterious "bent" trees sometimes found in the wooded areas around the southeast. These are landmarks or trail markers, created and left behind by Native American peoples.
Notice, this will be an open meeting, with the public invited, so come early if you want a good seat.
Meetings are held on the 4th Thursday of each month, except for the November and December meetings, which are held on the 3rd Thursday of the the month to prevent interference with the holidays and family get-togethers.
Additionally, the December meeting is our annual Christmas Dinner, and may be held just about anywhere in Douglas County. Sometimes we meet at a local restaurant, sometimes a potluck at someones home or at a local businesses conference or meeting room. The location will be announced by at least the November meeting, usually before, and the pertinent information will be posted here.
The meetings begin at 6:00 pm and are held in the Fellowship Hall (downstairs) of the Heritage Baptist Church, located at 8800 Rose Avenue, Douglasville, Georgia. The parking lot entrance is on Selman drive, just down from the traffic light at Rose Avenue and Selman Drive.
At the request of our host, we must tidy up and clear the room by 7:45 pm.
