Project Mary Ray is a workday planned to take place in Coweta County for Saturday the 14th. Mary Ray Memorial Schoolhouse Organization President Allen Robertson said early Friday morning, "All plans are still in place despite rain forecasts". The workday will be a chance for preservation enthusiasts to be involved hands on with the stabilization and restoration efforts for The Mary Ray Memorial School. The building was deeded to the Trustees of the People of the Town of Raymond in the early part of the 20th century and had harbored community activities until falling into disrepair in the late 1980's.
Volunteers for Project Mary Ray will not only work with locals in Raymond Saturday but will also be provided a southern style lunch. Lene Robertson says "we will have fried chicken with all the fixins and an array of homemade desserts"
