There’s a lot of stuff happening in this week’s paper! Two big events headlined the paper. The first was a Prayer Vigil that was held Thursday, May 16 on the Courthouse square. Several individuals were honored or remembered in prayer and candles were lit and balloons released.
Also happening over the weekend was Glennville’s annual Sweet Onion Festival! The day-long event on Saturday, May 18, featured fun from early in the morning to late at night. Lots of fun (and tasty sweet onions) to be had in Glennville!!
Pinewood Christian Academy’s graduation ceremony is set for Sunday, May 19 at 4 p.m. in the Eddie Durrence Gymnasium on the campus in Bellville. Tattnall County High School’s graduation is coming up this Friday, May 24 at 8 p.m.!
TCHS senior Brandon Purcell recently signed with Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville to play baseball.
Jeanette DeLoach received the Lions Club’s highest honor: she was named a “Paul Harris Fellow”.
