Mayor Willie Burns and the City of Washington hosted a reception for visiting Washington Post reporter Eli Saslow (second from right) and photographer Alexandra Garcia (left) at the Connely Gallery followed by dinner at Talk of the Town in the Fitzpatrick Hotel on Sunday evening. “We had Lee Campbell in full garb of Robert Toombs to recite his monologue from “Resthaven Revisted,” gallery owner Laura Connely (right) reported. Municipal Judge Ed Anderson came in his costume to portray Dr. Sessoms as well. “We wanted to show them a taste of our theatre and historical background,” Connely said. At the dinner, Saslow explained that he was in town to begin a series of stories on various cities and towns named Washington across the country. He said the stories would be part feature, part news, with some economic and political reporting as well. He said the story on Washingon, Georgia, the first in the series, would be published within about two weeks.
