The Society of Colonial Wars in the State of Georgia recently presented a $3,000 donation to Bethesda Academy. This group has a long history of supporting the school. Did you know that back in the early 1900s, the organization donated all of the pews that are located in the George Whitefield Memorial Chapel, a gift that was made in honor of all of the founders of Georgia? We didn't! What a testament to the historical importance of this local private school in #Savannah.
