"Made in America" First Friday
"Made in America" First Friday

First Friday is back again! The July theme is ‘Made in America’. This First Friday is one that is close to our heart and we want to celebrate our local heroes and our country. The First Friday Committee has planned a wide range of activities for people of all ages to enjoy.

Come out and visit with your local police officers, fire fighters, EMT’s and even Sparky, the Fire Dog. All of these local heroes will have their emergency vehicles on site for the kiddos to explore. Find these guys in the parking lot located next to the Post Office. Also in the parking lot will be the always exciting ORMC Kids Corner, they will decorating a patriotic banner to be displayed downtown. Make sure you are there to put your special mark on the banner!

Come support our featured non-profit organization this month, Help Camden Find A Cure. They are dedicated to raising awareness about the metabolic disease, Cystinosis. The organization was founded by John Sanders, whose son Camden, was diagnosed with the disease at age 4. They will be selling cotton candy with the ORMC Kids Corner and all the proceeds go back into the organization. Stop by their table to learn more about this rare disease and help a good cause as well as someone in our community.

Live entertainment will be provided by Ericka Shinholster & Friends, they will be playing Motown and Old School music in front of Capital City along with the Fall Line Ramblers, which will be preforming in the Post Office parking lot.

Don’t forget about the Fall Line Farmers’ Market at the First Presbyterian Church. They will have tons of fresh veggies, baked goods, and so much more. They will also have live entertainment provided by Moe Jonez.

We encourage you to show your American spirit and dress up the kiddos, the dogs, the strollers, and the wagons! For more information on First Friday contact Carlee or Deana at the Milledgeville Main Street Office, 478.414.4014.
