September is National Recovery Month. Promise of Hope, the faith-based substance abuse program for both women and men, held an event Saturday on the Bleckley courthouse square. People could participate in a "Walk of Hope" in honor or memory of someone who had battled addiction. Serving also as a fundraiser, volunteers were stationed on the corners of Second and Dykes Streets to collect donations. Items such as red ribbons and T-Shirts were for sale.
There was also free face painting. To learn more about Promise of Hope, visit their website.
