“Up And Away” … Athens-Concord Town Social Scheduled for Sunday, August 14

Athens, W.Va. – The 19th annual Athens-Concord Town Social will be Sunday, August 14, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the front lawn of the Concord University campus.

“The theme for this year’s event is ‘up and away,’” stated Athens-Concord Town Social Committee Co-chair Jean Beasley, “based on inspiration from this year’s t-shirt design by Concord University art student Sarah Spencer from Princeton.”

The Town of Athens and Concord University 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 -- 600-800 guests typically attend.

Vendors are invited to set up a booth, free-of-charge, to display and sell their handicrafts, and local musicians provide toe-tappin’ entertainment for the guests. ARAMARK provides the fixin’s for a picnic, also free-of-charge.

FOR VENDOR INFORMATION, CONTACT: Ms. Anne O’Sullivan, 1-304-384-7353.

FOR GENERAL INFORMATION, CONTACT: Town Social Committee Co-chair Jean Beasley, 1-304-384-9712.
