The following Macon Moment in History was taken from the June 14, 1956 edition of the Macon Chronicle-Herald.
The Macon Centennial Caravan was planning a 4-day tour. Some of the scheduled cities to visit during the caravan included: Bevier, Callao, New Cambria, Ethel, Elmer, Gifford, LaPlata and Atlanta. Salisbury, Brookfield, Keytesville and Kirksville were also among the towns to be visited. Grand Marshalls for the 4 days were: Ralph Stonger, A. Verne Baker, G.H. Andrews and A.J. Noll. The caravans were to be headed by the sheriff or the highway patrol in the lead vehicle followed by a school bus carrying the Macon High School Band. Paul Arnold was to take the Macon Drive-In Theatre public address car on each of the trips. An advertising car will distribute advertising about the centennial. The groups were hoping to sell tickets to the Red Foley Show at each of their stops.
