The 78th's destination Wednesday was the Bleckley County Courthouse.  Their day's journey started outside Vienna.  As they came into view on Second Street, the BCHS Cheerleaders were there to shout words of encouragement (as well as hand out drinks.)   A table of snacks awaited the 78th on the courthouse lawn.   Bleckley reisdent Master Sgt. Shannon Blanton spoke briefly to the gathering thanking everyone for their support.

Local church gives helping hand for new school year

Schools in Bleckley County begin August 11.  For the fourth straight year, New Life Church Of God provided a helping hand to families who might be struggling to get backpacks and other needed supplies for their children with "The Esther Project." 

The project serves as church outreach.  Those receiving supplies pre-registered with the church last week.  Saturday, they came to New Life and presented volunteers with a ticket that had a number.  After matching up number and name, the participants would be escorted inside where all the children would get a backpack filled with supplies needed for that grade as well as an optional hair cut/hair wash.  The backpacks and other supplies came from church members and community donations.
