The Good Ol’ Days: Visiting the Senior Citizens’ Center

The Piggly Wiggly grocery store, which was purchased by the city in 1985, used to host and/or fund many activities around Eufaula. One of the activities the Piggy Wiggly upheld was monthly visits to the senior citizens’ center, to honor those whose birthday it was that month. Above is a picture of a group visiting the center for that very reason.

The Good Ol’ Days: Robert Lane Receives the Key to the City

Mayor Joe Johnson is presenting the Key to the City to former County Commissioner,
Robert Lane, for his assistance in helping the city of Eufaula with many of its
growing projects, while saving the city many thousands of dollars. Robert
played a lead role in helping Eufaula in many ways. In particular, he helped to
extend Front Street, connecting it to Lakeshore Drive (behind Braum’s), thus opening
that area up for development. Not only did this construction allow that area to
develop, but it alleviated the traffic congestion on Main Street, as well. For
Mr. Lane’s assistance, Johnson got the city to name the stretch after the Commissioner,
himself. It is now called Robert’s Lane.
