Mary Ray School to hold Sunday dinner

The Mary Ray Memorial Schoolhouse group will be holding a Sunday dinner this Sunday.

The group has restored the Raymond Community’s century old school building, which is now being used as a community center. The dinner will be held in the historic structure from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m.

The school building is located Shedden Avenue in Raymond, just off Georgia Highway 16 between Newnan and Sharpsburg.

Anita Keith, secretary for the group, said plates will be $8 each. “Dinner is eat-in or take-out,” she said. Each plate will offer the choice of one meat, two vegetables, bread and dessert.

The non-profit which maintains the school in Raymond continues to seek donations and members. Contributions may be sent to Mary Ray Memorial Schoolhouse, 771-R Shedden Ave., Newnan, GA 30265.
