Three retire from center

A retirement reception was held on Dec. 30 for three employees at the Bainbridge Probation Substance Abuse Treatment Center, a facility of the Georgia Department of Corrections.

These retirees, who contributed a combined service of more than 82 years, are the following: Linda Brock of Pelham, Ga., began with the Bainbridge State Hospital in 1994; Judy Davis of Bainbridge began with the Bainbridge State Hospital in January 1977, and Judy Logue of Bainbridge began with Bainbridge State Hospital in September 1979.

The Bainbridge State Hospital closed in December 2000, and the Bainbridge PSATC opened in January 2001 at the same site.

During the closure, most of the hospital employees transferred to Southwestern State Hospital in Thomasville, including Brock and Davis. Logue began her employment with the Bainbridge PSATC in December 2000. Davis and Brock transferred to the corrections facility in January and April 2001, respectively.

Brock retired with more than 16 years of service, Davis with 34 years and Logue with 34.

Brock plans to enjoy her free time being at home with her husband, Hollis, spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren, and sitting on her back porch in the springtime.

Davis plans to work in her flowers, enjoy her triplet grandchildren who have recently moved next door to her, and visit her grandson in North Carolina. She also hopes to go camping more with her husband, Bill.

Logue plans to spend time with her family, camping with her husband, Dewayne, and expanding her photography hobby.
