Shirley Family Makes Donation to Schaefer Center
An area family makes a donation to the city of Toccoa and the Schaefer Center.
The Shirley family presented its donation to the city at Monday’s City Commission meeting.
Stephens County Sheriff Randy Shirley said his family found a program of “Gone With the Wind” that had belonged to his parents.
“We found the program of ‘Gone with the Wind’, the original program,” said Shirley. “It opened at the Ritz Theater back in 1940 or 1941. We know you have done a lot of work down at the SchaeferCenter and we wanted to, and thought it was fitting, to present this to the city of Toccoa so everybody could share in its value.”
Toccoa Mayor David Austin said the city appreciates the donation and said that it will be hung proudly in the Schaefer Center.
