December 1995, the last chapter that I wrote regarding the origins of Searcy Country Club.  It really is a fun story told to me by a nice gentleman, Hubert Smith, who has passed on but is not forgotten.

Go back through your memories?  Do you ever do that?  I just dug out an old folder from 1995.  My husband was president of Searcy Country Club and we did a little history search regarding the club.  We interviewed the men and women who were the ones who began the club, from having the idea to buy...
