THE WAYNESVILLE MOUNTAINEER
Hazelwood Civic Club Has Spon
sored Many Worthwhile
Projects In 11 Years
By Tom Reeves
In 1925 L. M. Richeson, Claude N.
Allen, and possibly one or two others
mt in the bak room of some store
and conceived the idea that their
town of Hazelwood was sorely in need
of a civic organization. The Boosters'
Club was organized as a result of this
idea and need. The originator of the
name is unknown, having been offer
ed at a general round-table discussion
where several suggestions were made.
Of course the purpose of the club
when founded was to promote a gen
eral improvement of the town as well
as to sponsor many particular activi
ties in the schools, churches and com
munity. The charter members included
Claude N. Allen, L. M. Richeson, John
Blalock, Frank Compton, J. C. Fisher,
W. D. Blalock, R. L. Prevo.st, Sam
Knight, J. N. Knight, W. L. Mehaffey,
Tom Blalock,, Jim Long, Ernest Hyatt,
end others who also were among the
leading men of Hazelwood.
Today the active membership is
more than thirty-five, with a long list
of people who have been members at
one time or another, This roll does
not .confine itself to those living with,
in the city limits, but rather it is
dotted with the names of leading citi
zens from nearby communities who
have taken an active interest for a
period of time in the welfare of Ha
zelwood. L. M. Richeson says, "I doubt if you
could find a more active organization
any place. WTien one gets to thinking
about it, the Boosters, have really done
many outstanding things. They have
accomplished much here and else
where, and, no doubt, the Boosters
will continue to be of great benefit to
many advantages of the town. Three
or four clean-UD campaigns, with
prizes to the most attractive homes
have been carried out by this group
of civic-minded men
Through the Boosters' untiring
work the town of Hazelwood has been
represented by one of the best base
ball clubs in the Industrial League.
During one of their regular monthly
meetings of the year teachers' night
is held for all members of the mzei
wood faculty. One of their outstand
ing accomplishments and of para
mount importance to the industrial
life of the town wik the part the
Roosters nlaved in securing the lo
cation of the tapestry plant and help
ing to bring about an enlargement of
other business interests here. Anoin
er recent feature of the Boosters is
the carrvinir out of their plan to
have inter-citv meetings with the
nivitan flnh of Canton and the Ro
tarv Club of Waynesville, all of which
have been successful beyond the fond
est. hones of those who planned them.
Theee have been only a few of the
mnnv accomplishments this wide
awake organization which meets each
month for a social and business gatn
ering. A program is planned for each
month when some of the outstanding
speakers of Western North Carolina
are presented to members of the club.
The Boosters alternate their monthly
meetings, eating one month at the
"hut" of the Presbyterian church and
the next at the city hall where they
are fed by the women of another
church. All profit from the ban
ouets sro to the church organizations.
Past presidents iiulude Claude N.
Allen, L. M. Richeson, Sam Knight,
John Blalock, "Red'' Prevost, Jim
Long, Joe Davis, R. S. Roberson, and
L. N. Davis.
Mr. Davis, president of this year,
says that plans for the future call
for the active work that the Boosters
have been doing in the past. In the
eleventh year of its life the club is
this locality as they carry
ture plans designed for the better- very active a it performs its pur
ment of conditions within this and pose of sponsoring a better under
standing and a better appreciation
for community life.
Claude N. Allen, the club's first
president, stated that the Boosters
had done a good piece of work in the
ten years of its existence, and that he
was well satisfied with the progress
made towards the carrying out of
the plans which the originators had
in mind when the club was founded..
For several years the Boosters' Club
has sponsored the township track
meet by furnishing a much desired
banner to the winning team. Four or
five egg hunts have been carried out
for the children of the community, a
well as numerous picnics and Labor
Day celebrations for all citizens of
the town. Prizes for perfect attend
ance at Sunday School, donations to
the milk fund at the Hazel wood Ele
mentary school, and special assist
ance to Parent-Teacher Associations
are listed among the Boosters' con
tributions. The same organization
furnished a room at the Haywood
County Hospital as well as donated a
crib to the maternity' ward. The
