ATHENS, W.Va. – The 31st Athens-Concord Town Social will be held on Sunday, Aug. 13, 2017 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on the front lawn of Concord University in Athens, W.Va.

The annual event is being held on Aug. 13 to coincide with the date Concord students move into the residence halls for the Fall 2017 semester. This allows students and their families, along with faculty returning to campus, the opportunity to participate.

The Town Social offers the campus community, residents of Athens and guests from across the area an afternoon to socialize, enjoy live entertainment and visit craft booths, food vendors and business and organization displays. Children’s games are also part of the fun along with recognition of campus and community service award recipients.
