HOGANSVna HOME NEWS - THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2001 It's Time fO;sprlng uarter00 City To 00)bserve 'French Conm'.c For 25 years, Marquis de Lafayette has stood tall over LaGrange. The 14-foot-tall statue of the French Revolutionary War hero stands at the center of the town square as a symbol of the unique history that exists between Le Puy, France and LaGrange. On Friday, Februmw 23, LaGrange will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the place- ment of Lafayette in a noontime ceremo- ny at the statue. The French consul-gener- al in Atlanta, Monsieur Jean-Paul Monchau and a delegation of 28 Rotarians from Le Puy will be on hand for the ceremony. The statue of Lafayette was first placed in the town square in 1976 during the bicen- tennial celebration of the United States. It was the late Dr. Waights G. Henry, who at that time was President of LaGrange College, who led the effort to have the stat- ue commissioned from an identical statue of Lafay, ctte in Le Puy, France. Histor,ally, Lafayette never actually visited Troup County, but he did travel close by, through the Creek Indian Territory of Georgia's Chattahoochee River Valley. During his travels, he remarked that the land reminded him of his estate near Paris, named LaGrange. When Troup County was established a short time later, the founders remembered his comment and thus named the county seat LaGrange. The rededication ceremony will serve as the kickoff to the Hydrangea Festival, a four month cultural festival celebrating LaGrange's French connection. include a performance by the Opera Theater on the 22nd, by the LaGrange Symphony and Ballet on the 23rd, and events in June including arts and crafts festival and Lafayette", a flower show presented Elms and Roses Garden Local garden clubs have been ing the planting of hydrangeas es and homeoxmers to coincide festivities.
