Plains- People in South Georgia helped The National Parks Service celebrate its 89th birthday Thursday. Congress created the service on this date in 1916 to promote and regulate the use of national parks and to preserve our nation's history.
In 1987, The Jimmy Carter National Historic site joined the system. Thursday in Plains, visitors enjoyed cake and a special presentation about the site. Without help from the Plains community, this national treasure might have been lost.
"Without the help of the citizens of Plains, they may have lost a part of it, but through their efforts and the National Parks Service we've preserved it," said Steve Theus, Park Ranger.
"One of the things we're doing for Founders Day is distributing kits like this to schools in Sumter County, so they have information in their school system they can use and learn more about the National Parks System and the resources here in Plains," said Annette Wise, Georgia Department of Education Instructional Specialist.
A steady stream of people visited the Plains High School Museum today where President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn attended high school.
