War news remembered

Andy Denton was recently helping his mother Miriam move some furniture when they came across a bulletin from the First Baptist Church which was distributed on Father's Day in 1945. The bulletin was arranged in newsletter form and filled with information concerning events surrounding the end of the war and updates on many of your friends and neighbors who were serving in the military. There were references to daily events as using red points to buy meat, Easter hats, the church music of Mrs. Tiller and Mrs. McCorkle and also the unbelievable news of President Roosevelt dying in Georgia.
