Bleckley County 100 year stories sought

Bleckley County is celebrating its 100 year birthday this year, and there are so many stories about the people in the community that have yet to be told or might need to be revisited.

If you or someone you know has been a resident of Bleckley County 25 years to 100 years and has a historical tale to share or an interesting hobby or has had some impact on Bleckley County in the 100 year span, i.e. as a volunteer, a teacher, a preacher, a law official, a bus driver, etc, e-mail rlhg4@bellsouth.net or becky@pipsconsulting.com.
