Planning Begins for Free Food, Fun and Prizes at the Athens-Concord Town Social

Athens, W.Va. - Plans are underway for the 15th Annual Athens-Concord Town Social—an exercise in down-home friendliness! The Town Social will be held Sunday, August 12, 2001 on the Concord College campus from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Town Social Planning Committee expects from 600 to 800 local residents and visitors to show up for the free food and fun.

Call for Exhibitors/Crafters

Craftspeople are invited to participate in the event, which is free to them, too! Town Social organizers will provide tables, chairs and a limited number of electrical connections.

Committee members include: Chairperson Georgia Kelley, Treasurer Jean Beasley, Secretary Kati Whittaker, Jennifer Johns-Gooding, Anne O’Sullivan, Elizabeth Kane, Anita Lewis, Loretta Young, Mary Edna Beckett, Margaret Ann Scott, Bob Yuhasz, Lori Keaton, Phyliss Hodges, Dale Geiger and Eddie Kessinger.

The Town of Athens and Concord College jointly plan the social, which is traditionally held on the second Sunday of each August. The goal of the Town Social is to provide an opportunity for residents of the Town of Athens and surrounding areas, the Concord community and visitors to socialize in a small-town setting.
