   We are browsing amongst the pages of Don Broome’s Tuesday, February 20, 1962 Moultrie Observer.  It’s fun…and although I did not move to Moultrie until 1981, I recognize many of the names and events!

   Some of the society page events include a story about the wedding of Miss Dorothy Irene Tyson and Wayne Lee Brazeau who were married at the home of the bride’s sister, Mrs. Billy Dunlap and Mr. Dunlap.  Billy Peters officiated at the rites.
