If there is no saving the Lamar County Activity Center, then all the iconic buildings in the local black community will have lost their venerable grandmother.
The Thrift Store at the Lamar County Activity Center will move out of the facility, a prospect neither the operators nor customers favor, said Mildred Barber, manager. Shown on the day they were told a move was imminent are Samanda Westbury, Beverly Phinazee, Barber, Judy Lambert, and Amanda Westbury. The store sales benefit programs in the county for children and seniors "and there will be some that wouldn't make it without us," said Amanda Westbury.
