May 3 is Cemetery Clean-Up Day in Buckhead
By Betty Moore
Our sympathy goes to the family of Felton Smith. He had lived at the Great Oaks Assisted Living Home in Monroe for several years. His funeral was at Meadows Funeral Home with interment at the Buckhead Cemetery with Rev. Danny Smith as pastor. Danny is the son of McGeary and Inez Parker Smith. Felton had three children, David, Phillip and Becky, their spouses, two grandchildren and one soon to be born grandchild. Felton’s family was from Buckhead.

These two ladies happen to be the ones that you may have seen in Buckhead or on the roadside gathering trash and aluminum cans. Without them what would our little city look like? My car often looks like a trash bin but I try to keep my trash inside the car until later. My husband used to tell me that we could grow a garden inside. Not really why would everyone not try to keep Buckhead neat and nice and the roadsides? I would like to tell Pat and Linda that I appreciate you.
For all of your news please call 706-342-0266. Thanks.
