Monthly Meeting - Thursday, April 7, 2016
We all enjoy hearing about our heritage and history; especially from someone who knows fact from fiction. Compatriot John Garrett will be here on April 7th to inform us on much to do with that heritage and history. He will also be bringing part of his vast artifact collection to exhibit for us.
John is a true son of the South and you will enjoy listening to him regale us about that heritage and history. We will be reminded that we must stand up now before it is too late, or we will lose that which is precious to us.

section 1-4-20 was passed by our State Legislature stating as such.
Governor Deal, for the first time since this law has been enacted, would
not sign a proclamation declaring such.
It is currently P.C.
to attack all things Confederate, and even Southern. If we don’t stand
up now, our children and grandchildren may not get the opportunity to do
Each year we decorate the front window at the Rome Area
History Museum for “our month”, but due to the recent damage on the
front of the building, we will not be decorating the RAHM this year.
However, we will have a table in the conference room upstairs for an
upcoming program the Museum is holding. We cannot let up our vigilance -
we have to “improvise, adapt, and overcome”.
