Researched by Dr. Bill Stewart
June 30, 1955 -The Cedar Plains Christian Church, decimated by the April 24 tornado, will be rebuilt. This was the message delivered this week by Lovic Orr, head of the Massey Community Club. What is projected to be a largely volunteer effort will begin a month from now.
June 30, 1955 -Mrs. Merrill Doss and her fellow officers are already making plans for activities in support of Hartselle Elementary during the next school year.

July 1, 1955 -Work began today on a multiphase improvement program that will widen U.S. Highway 31 between Decatur and Hartselle.
July 2, 1955 -Dr. W. H. Block is taking an increasingly important part in matters relating to heart health at both the state and national levels. The esteemed Hartselle physician recently returned from a meeting of the board of directors of the American Heart Association in New York City.
