SAVE   GROVE  TOWER

 

Good  hands  saved  Grove   Tower

 

The success of a project usually
depends on the dedicated effort of a few peo-
ple willing to give of their time and talent to
see it through: Many are willing to help. but
the way must be provided by those few will-
ing to bear the burden of leadership.

This has been demonstrated in the suc-
cessful effort to save the Grove School
Tower building from the wrecking crew and
preserve the historic landmark for posterity

The Tower will be rededicated Saturday
morning in a program to, begin prompt-
ly at 9 o'clock. It is most fitting that it will
be rededicated to the continued use of
education, the purpose for which the struc-
ture was first erected in 1906 by county and
city with the encouragement and financial

assistance of Dr. E.W. Grove, the local
pharmaceutical genius who became wealthy and offered an endowment to operate Henry County's first high school.

Recognition will be given Saturday to
those who have given money to make the
Tower restoration possible, and to, those
who led the funds drive, to those who work-
ed in the campaign and to those who con-
tributed manual labor to restore the long
vacant building and make it useable as
headquarters for the Henry County school
System and Board of Education.

Congratulations to all who helped and
special commendations to those who led the
way and gave many hours of time to the
project. It was a worthy project and a job
well done.
