Toys And Food For Needy Children To Be Collected


All kinds of interesting things have happened in the history of Grantville. The latest concerns the famous Budweiser Clydesdale Horses, which were part of the plans for this year's Grantville Day festival.

When the Clydesdales could not come to Grantville Day (whose official name this year was the Grantville Days Crosstie Festival), the Grantville Day Committee scheduled them instead for Tuesday Dec. 9 as a Christmas present to Grantville.

To be more precise, they are a Christmas present both from the Grantville Day Committee and from LaGrange Grocery, which is also involved in the planning.

The Clydesdales will be on display both in their famous trotting mode and also stationary to give the spectators an opportunity to photograph these fabulous horses.

Since the Clydedales do not make that many appearances, anyone interested should be sure to take advantage of this opportunity. They will only be here for two hours: from 5:30 p.m. through 7:30 p.m.

The location will be the site of Ann Long's trailers, which is on Ga. Highway 29 going south about a quarter mile past Exit 35 on the left side of the road just past the gas-station/stores.  

It is not certain whether or not Santa will appear but spectators will be given an opportunity to play Santa by donating non-perishable foods and new unwrapped toys, which will be distributed to needy Grantville families for Christmas.
