Em, Em, Good!
Eating plates of spaghetti in this scene from 1973 are a young John Bolin, left, and Carol Sprayberry. The photo, provided by Dick Bolin, was published to remind Coweta County folks to attend the annual spaghetti supper sponsored by the Henry Kitchens Sunday School Class of Newnan First United Methodist Church. This year's supper is coming up on Friday, March 6. Tickets are $3.50 for adults and $1.75 for children. Meals may be taken out or eaten at the church. Tickets are available from any member of the class or by calling the church. The annual supper raises money for college scholarships given in memory of the late Henry B. Kitchens, who taught the Sunday School class for many years. Kitchens was also a teacher at Newnan High School before he went to work for International Playtex. From 1964 through 1988 there have been 25 scholarship recipients. The first year, a $500 scholarship was given and in 1981, the class began awarding two scholarships at $1,250 each. Also that year, second-year assistance was awarded to each recipient. More than $28,000 has been awarded to students since 1964, and more than 1,000 people were served at last yea'rs supper. Several local merchants contribute to the supper each year by providing materials at cost or for free.
