Kemp Mabry always helped organize Bulloch County's annual Memorial Day program. Even though he passed away in March, Kemp helped put together much of Monday's event.

Every dot on the map needs a hometown grocer - a personable place where you can load up your buggy with beef, where you're called "darlin'" by the cashier at checkout and where you know your butcher by name.
