Sunday, April 3, was the 50th anniversary of Beth Foster Long’s service as organist at Ringgold First Baptist Church. She was presented with a plaque of appreciation.

In 1966, organist Edna McMillon, mother of former city councilman Bill McMillon, had to retire due to vision problems. Beth (Foster at the time) was asked by the minister of music to play the organ.

“Music comes from God’s heart,” she said. “It is a language of it’s own.”
