OAK GROVE

I haven't been able to find any mention of Oak Grove as a community other than these columns from The Fayetteville News - If anyone knows what area of the county this was, please let me know.

 OAK GROVE

Sabbath school was well attended at Oak Grove last Sunday; We are glad to know that more of our older people are attending -- parents should go with their children.

Bro. Martin, of Senoia, preached a most able sermon at Glen Grove last Saturday from 2 Tim., 1:8: "Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord."

A sabbath school was organized here this week with R. L. Arnold superintendent, Caspar Arnold secretary, Isaac Whatley chorister, Miss Sudie Arnold, organist. The prospects are good for a most interesting Sunday school. Teachers will be appointed next Sunday.

The public school is again well attended this pleasant weather. The assistant teacher, Miss Louvale Brown, was not able to be in school last Friday on account of an attack of lagrippe.

The "Union Meeting" at Ebenezer last week was well attended. The people were disappointed in not hearing the state lecturers but were entertained by Oscar Gray, of Coweta, and Messrs. Graham and Dixon, from Fayetteville. Our able commissioner sounded the keynote when he said "educate our boys and girls and have them apply their learning when they farm."

Ebenezer school has taken another step forward in the educational line -- their building is being furnished with patent desks. Every school should have them. This speaks well for the teacher, Miss Mamie Burks.
