Nancy’s dedication of 45 years to the Society was just one of the achievements and accomplishments touched on during the evening.  She also served on the Coweta County Convention & Visitors Bureau for 28 years and has been a steadfast promoter of the town of Senoia. The evening featured her family and friends, and funny stories were told throughout the event.

Presenters included Senoia mayor Dub Pearman,  Assistant Director of Coweta County Community Development Angela White, Director of Event Services for Coweta County Tray Baggarly, and local author Angela McRae, along with a host of historical society members. 

Opening the night with a musical parody of “Hello Dolly”, Frank Ziedler filled the room with laughter as he sung the words to “Hello Nancy.”    A three-minute slide show provided the audience with photos and achievements of Nancy throughout her life, and a special presentation was performed by the society’s refreshment committee who call themselves the kitchen wenches.

Society President Steve Maloy presented Nancy with flowers and an award for her dedication to the society’s mission of preserving and promoting Senoia’s unique history, and the evening ended with another musical parody, this time performed by Frank Zeidler, Dennis Sanford, Steve Maloy, Jim Schuyler and Hal Sewell as they sang “Goodnight Nancy.” 

The evening was a well-deserved tribute to Nancy Roy, a charter member of the Senoia Area Historical Society since 1977 and a good, kind and generous friend. The Senoia Area Historical Society was founded in 1977 and officially incorporated in 1980.
