Last week. the editor journeyed to Cedar Creek iuat in time to get in on the Annual Foster Family Picnic for Area 14 {Calhoun and Gilmer counties}. There were more than 50 foster children present, along with foster parents, other children and Area 14 Department of Welfare personnel. The children arrived at the park around noon. being driven there by parents and Welfare workers. That gave them plenty of time for a dip in the pool. horseshoe pitching, and all the other activities that interested them prior to the picnic lunch. The meal, which included fresh roasted hot dogs prepared on one of the park's grills, was furnished by the foster parents and the workers. It was served at around 3 p.m. The children were scheduled to remain at the park until 5. but a brewin storm and threats of high winds cut their visit a bit short. They, nevertheless. seemed to enioy the day immensely. Those attending from the Welfare Department were: Earl Nicholson. Area Administrator: Don Bailey; Lorene Wolfe: Ann Stalnaker: Mildred Burke.
