After 41 years, Buggy Days still has the magic touch.
Huge crowds were on tap at Friday's street dance and all day Saturday though they peaked during the parade. Saturday night's pig chase drew record throngs, much to the chagrin of several PETA operatives who reportedly were at the rodeo arena and shooting video.
Benefitting from magnificent early fall weather, attendance may have been the best ever in the history of Barnesville's signature event.
Floyd Davis, Gordon ’41, visits with Natalie Rischbieter, alumni affairs and annual fund administrator, during a recent visit to campus to donate several mounted fish to the Gordon State College Biology Department. Davis, who came to Gordon in 1938 when he was just 14, served in World War II and decided while on a medical transport ship that he would attend medical school and practice ophthalmology. He did just that, maintaining a practice in Fayette County for many years.
“We were so happy to have Mr. Davis visit campus and appreciate his wonderful gift,” said Rischbieter.
