THE OLD SWING SETS THAT HUNREDS OF AUGUSTA’S KIDS PLAYED ON ARE STILL UP. CHUCK DRAY TOOK THE SWINGS DOWN AND PUT THEM IN HIS YARD FOR HIS KIDS WHEN THE HILLTOP CLOSED. CHUCK HAS SINCE PASSSED ON BUT THAT WHITE SWING SET IS STILL UP. IT LASTED LONGER THAN THE DRIVE-IN.

Great introduction, Mike. I was there in 1965-66 but remember nothing about it. If I had a mosquito problem there, it wasn’t memorable. When I got to Leesville LA, I frequently attended a drive-in that was a total mosquito pit. Neither spraying nor closed windows helped.
