Director discusses 00Seven Cities project Mrs. Norma Selvidge, promotional director in charge of coordinating the floating amphitheatre project at Green- belt Lake, told the Clarendon Kiwanis Club of all the possibilities of the new recreational park project Tues- day morning. At a meeting of the Kiwanians and their wives, Mrs. Selvidge described the project and the goals of the Seven Cities of Ciholi, Inc., promoters for the project. She said the amphitheatre will be completed by mid- winter, and would be opened with an Easter pageant next year. Mrs. Selvidge said that she is presently working with state and government-appointed historical representatives for ideas and funding on the project. "We want to bring out our heritage," Mrs. Selvidge said. She said plans call for a model of Old Clarendon to be constructed on the 2C0-acre site which has been obtain- ed for the project. Mrs. Selvidge explained that the entire concept of the Seven Cities recreational park would be designed into seven different cities, all from historical origin. The project ultimately will coincide with the 1976 U. S. Bi-Centennlal. The complete Seven Cities project should be completed by then, she said. "We want to be a leader in celebrating the country's 200th birthday," she said. Mrs. Selvidge called for public support in getting behind this project, citing the value to the community. "Dial-00, ,Prayer" given to church An expansion in the Outreach Ministry of The First Baptist Church has been made, withthe addition of a "Dial A Prayer" system by the church. The "Dial a Prayer" service was donated in memory and honor of Mr. and Mrs. Sam W. Lowe, by their son and his fam- ily. Residents may dial 874-2112, and will get a devotional and a prayer any time during the day or night. The devotional and prayer will change each day, so that the system may become routine each day for every resident of Donley County. The program is a part of the extended facilities of the church Prayer Room, also donated for Mrs. and Mrs. Lowe. It is especially intended to help those who are unable to per- sonally use the Prayer Room. The "Dial a Prayer" is a convenient means for personal prayer with a pastor each day. The devotionals are no: -de- nominational. The unit also has the capacity to take messages for visita- tion or counseling. This message service is not yet available, but will be available soon. So add something to your life each day. Dial a prayer. Call 874-2112. rAMs BRANDON, pastor of the First Baptist Church, records a devotional on the }ial a Prayer" unit, whichisavallablefor use to area residents. You may call 874- a prayer and devotional each clay, any time of the clay. (Press Photo by Will Lowe) Liquor petition may be near A petition calling for a liquor vote in Precinct I of Donley County is being prepared and will be presented to the Commissioners Court when they meet in June, The Clarendon Press learned Wednesday. An election was held a little more than a year ago con- cernlng the liquor question in Precinct I, and it failed by 11 votes. Proponents had to wait one year before the question could come up again. To begin the process, a petition with 139 names or more must be presented to the Commissioners Court. Then, the court must set the election. Then the voters decide whether they want the precinct wet or not. If the petition is presented in June, the election would probably be held in July.
