Robert Catchings provided wonderful and unusual entertainment during the quarterly dinner Monday evening. Catchings plays a saw with a violin bow. He calls it a vio-saw so-phone!

I'd love to see more! I'm so thrilled to have found the location of the museum here on FB, because I've been trying to dig back into my family's history, and my dad's family was from Bainbridge.

If a...nyone has any information about my dad, Leon A. Kahn (Bainbridge H.S. class of c. 1932?) and graduate of U.Ga. in 1935, I'd appreciate hearing from you! My grandparents owned a dry goods business called "Kahn's Busy Corner (or "Korner"), when my dad and aunt were young. During the "boom times" during WWII (as I was told) my granny, Beatrice Kahn, owned a clothing shop specializing in clothing for the young military wives who needed maternity clothing, as well as clothes for their new babies. By then, my dad and mom (whom he first met up in Athens, had established themselves in the L.A. area, with its booming scientific communities since the late-30s. I was born there, but loved my family in So. Georgia and enjoyed visiting my granny, and her friends. (My grandfather, Israel Kahn had passed on a number of years before I was born.)

I still have cousins in So. Georgia, and plan to visit them. I'd love to spend some time perusing the collection of items and "curios" at the Historical and Genealogical Society. I'm thrilled to have an address for the Society, because I do have some items that might be of interest, including old black & white photos from my dad's (and my aunt Shirley's) childhood, depicting flooding when the Flint River overflowed its banks. Also have a lot of assorted other photos. Since I've scanned so many things, I think original photos belong in a space like the Society.

I do look forward with great anticipation to visit this year or next! In the meantime, I'm enjoying the pictures of the exhibits, and seeing familiar surnames, and even a few of the first names attached to them!

Clayton Penhallegon presented an enlightening and entertaining program on the 150th anniversary of St. Johns Episcopal Church at the quarterly meeting of the DCH&GS. The beautiful church on Broughton Street will have activities throughout the year as they mark their sesquicentennial.
