Grantville Depot Southern Country Gospel Sings for April Announced
     In April, as usual, it will be on the fourth Friday and Saturday nights that the Southern Country Gospel Sings will be held in the renovated Railroad Freight Depot on Main Street in Grantville.  This month there will be something different added to the Friday night Sing:  there will be an all day Yard Sale to raise money to help a family in great need.  This Yard Sale will be held in the part of Colley Park adjacent to the Depot and will begin at 10 AM and will last until the Gospel Sing ends, which is usually around 10 PM.  Anyone with items to donate to the Yard Sale can bring them at any time during the day.
     OK, now here are the groups which have been lined up:
Friday April 27:
Glory Road Quartet from Hogansville, GA
Carter Family from LaGrange, GA
The Whites from Grantville, GA
(also several unnamed young people will be singing)
Saturday April 28:
Hope's Journey from Heflin, AL
Shotgun & Gentry from Heflin, AL
Jimmy Norred from Hogansville, GA
Young Spirit from Manchester, GA
     As always there is no admission charge to the Sings, there is a relaxed picnic-like atmosphere, and one can come and leave when he wishes.
     Grantville is a small city in southern Coweta County located at Exit 35 on I - 85.  The traditional Main Street and the Park and trees surrounding the Depot provide the ambience makes it an ideal venue for the Southern Country Gospel Music genre.
