Former Laurel Hill mayor, Douglas Rogers, laid to rest

In addition to his public service, Douglas Rogers served as a deacon at First Baptist Church of Laurel Hill.

The Rogerses — both 1945 Laurel Hill School graduates — were noted for their community outreach, including providing and maintaining a garden and gazebo that once stood in front of 1905 Gallery, and donating land for the city's maintenance yard.

"The Rogers have helped advance their burgeoning city and, subsequently, have become engrained in the city's history," U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller said in the House of Representatives on June 4, 2008.
