Athens, W.Va. - Plans are underway for the 14th Annual Athens-Concord Town Social. 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 1,000 local residents and visitors to show up for the free food and fun. Vendors bring their wares to sell at the local event, and committee members are ordering new souvenir t-shirts to sell. Games will be held for children and door prizes will be given away.

Music on the Greens

Joe Lively will emcee the festivities and Sarcus (Barry Fowler, Eddie Wimmer, Kevin Cole) and Ed Hartman will provide musical entertainment. Visitors will hear blue grass, old-time and more modern music, too.
