Children of Bainbridge

The Youth Assembly delegates who perished in the Winecoff fire are remembered in Bainbridge, Georgia. As part of a college assignment, Addie Livingston,17, has written about them. She was asked to present her work to the Rotary Club in Bainbridge and it's been picked up by bainbridgega.com. Livingston deserves an A+ for her poignant and focused remembrance of the tragic event that continues to shape the values of Bainbridge. The article is here.

My great-aunt was Patsy Griffin..and I am glad that something had and is being done to give the rememberance that these children diserve. I do wish there was a little more done by intrvtewing the remaining family members of these children of Baingridge, Ga.
The only mention that is done is by the aricle that Miss Livingston presented to the rotary and gave to her professor and the short fact in your article.
I know my father was 7 years old when this happened and my Grandfather was a representive in Atlanta and had taken his daughter out to dinner the night of the fire.
I am sure there are more stories as to how the families found out and what they did...that would be interesting.
