Millegeville Farmers Market Open

The Milledgeville Marketplace Farmers Market is in its third month of the season and going strong, with an average of 17 vendors and more than 400 customers weekly. The market offers a wide variety of goodies ranging from fresh locally grown produce, to honey, to hand crafted jewelry, clothing, soap, and so much more! Even with the threat of rain during the last couple of markets the vendors and customers have braved the weather and continued to support the market.

Customers have taken to the new incentive program introduced at the market this year. Market goers can pick up marketplace punch cards that can be used while shopping with the different vendors at the market. Once the punch card is full it can be turned in to the Main Street table to earn free Market Bucks as well as be entered into a monthly drawing for $25. The June winner was Ms. Maddy Cook, Maddy is a regular at the market and visits most Tuesdays to shop with a variety of vendors.

Georgia College Intramural Program One of Best in the United States

Last year, more than 2,400 students participated in intramural sports like flag football, basketball, dodgeball and even inner tube water polo.

That popularity with students, the number of intramural sports available and the quality of team management and coaching helped rank Georgia College’s intramural program as one of the top in the nation, according to BestColleges.com.

“This is an amazing honor for the intramural program at Georgia College,” said Director of Recreational Sports Bert Rosenberger. “It means a lot that the program has been ranked nationally and shows the dedication of our staff, student workers and all the participants to establish a tradition of excellence.”

Intramural sports are open to all students of different athletic abilities and competitive levels.
