Geter and representa- tives of the Boys and Girls Club of West Georgia have agreed to meet to further dis- cuss the creation of a club in Hogansville, and Martin has said he will again bring the possibility of creating a Boys an Girls Club before the Hogansville City Council.

Although the city has not officially endorsed Martin's proposals, there seems to be general agreement that he is on to a good idea.
