City of Hinesville officials and family members of Irene Baker Thomas and Edna Frasier gathered together Saturday morning for a ribbon-cutting ceremony, officially opening Irene B. Thomas Park, which is located of Georgia Highway 196, adjacent to The Dugout restaurant.
Mayor Pro Tem Charles Frasier and his older brother, Rev. Henry Frasier, Edna’s sons and Irene’s grandsons, recalled the days when they lived with their mother on the site where the park now stands. Henry told the crowd gathered about the times when he went mudding for catfish that his mother and grandmother fried for dinner. The park’s lake is now stocked with bass.
Liberty County Recreation Director Jimmy Martin said the park will follow normal LCRD rules.
