Looks like a fairly quiet weekend ahead. Enjoy it, because next weekend is going to be busy!
Monday, Jan. 21, is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Scheduled events include:
Another big event on the horizon is the Athens Chamber of Commerce Banquet. The event will see big awards, like the Citizen of the Year.
The event is set for 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 18. Tickets are still available, but hurry.
We won’t see as much rain this weekend as we have during the week, but the forecast is still calling for some drizzles. Prepare accordingly.
The Athens Daily Review has a story about the Athens EDC considering a funding request for the splash pad planned for Kiwanis Park.h
Finally, I owe a personal thank you to the folks in Malakoff who threw me a wonderful party last night to mark my departure from The Malakoff News. It was beyond anything I could have envisioned and a lot of nice people said some really nice things about me.
I have been very blessed to work in a community full of people who care, and the secret is that I should be the one thanking you for allowing me into your lives and being able to make a living doing what I love.
So, thank you.
