Attendance at the Gilmer County Summer Youth Recreation Program has jumped from a daily average of 12 to 181 persons. Probably because there are activities for all persons, no matter what age. The program is co-sponsor- ed by the Board of Education, Community Action Association and the Department of Welfare. CAA provides funds for sports equipment and the Department of Welfare provide supervisory person- nel at five sites: the four elementary schools and the high school. Hours for recreation at each school are: Sand Fork, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. M-F; Normantown, noon to 8 p:m. M-F; Tanner, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. M-F: Troy, 12:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. M-F: and GCHS, 12:30 to 8:30 v.m. M-F. Among the activities offered at each site are Babe Ruth baseball, girls softball, volleyball, badminton, basket- ball, frisbees, horseshoes, croquet, swings, slides and see saws. Hopefully. the summer program will develop into a year-round program, with activities broadened at the school sites to include not only sports but dancing, educational programs such as safety and first aid and movies. One of the more popular activities currently enjoyed the local residents is the double elimination Babe Ruth League baseball tournament. Originally,,there were four teams - Tanner, Sand Fork. Troy and Normantown. However,when Sand Fork coach Bucky Edwards joined the U.S. Army, the Sand Fork team dropped out. There are also five girls softball teams, one from each school.

The Gassaways were visiting their daughter and son-in-law, Kathy and Jim ]acobs of near Normantown. They also visited the town of Gassaway, which has no relationship to their family name. Like most caves in rural West Virgina. Fetty's Cave is reputed to have been, at various times, a hiding place for horses during the Civil War, an American Indian stronghold, and storage center. Several area residents noted for their knowledge of local history scoffed at those stories regarding Fetty's Cave. And Park Norman, retired Gilmer County Circuit Court clerk who grew up in the area, remembers the cave as a play area and hunting camp. "'When I was a youngster, my teacher at the old one-room Shock Grade School used to take us up there to play weavely wheat," he recalled. "'The field to the right of the cave was one of the finest blackberry patches around, too." "There's so many tales about the old cave, but Boyd Norman. who owned a 180-acre tract up there, used to hunt squirrels from the cave with Bud Curry, James Shock and Virgil Harris."
