Dear Editor: The Friends of Porterdale Inc. wants to extend a very special thank you to all the people who contributed to the success of the Betty F. Jaynes Roast on May 15. This special thank you extends to the sponsors of our event, the volunteers, the contributors, the Betty F. Jaynes Roast committee, those of you who supported us by attending the event and the sports celebrities who gave their time and waived any speaking fees they normally charge to participate on the program. A very special thank you to Betty Faith Jaynes for allowing us the opportunity to honor her and her many accomplishments and for donating all proceeds to the rebuilding project of the historic Porter Memorial Gymnasium in Porterdale.
What a memorable night for Porterdale and Newton County. From the bottom of my heart and from the Friends of Porterdale Inc. organization - thank you!
