Community Review - No rest for weary

    Nevils Elementary School invited me to come out to their Patriots Day celebration on Tuesday. I really enjoyed visiting with the dedicated parents and educators there. The new school is beautiful, and I was really impressed with the children. They were so well-behaved and attentive. You can see pictures from the ceremony on the Photo Gallery on the Community page of our Web site.
    We have had lots of online discussion this week. Below are snippets from our contributors and correspondents, and there’s lots more conversation from other folks in the community. Come online and join us for fun and conversation. Tell us what you’re up to and find out what your neighbors are thinking and doing.
    We made the transition from the old Community site to the new Community site pretty easily. Only a couple of people experienced any problems, and we were able to take care of them without too much trouble. Again, I would like to recognize our development team for their hard word. Good job, all.
    Don’t think that our recent launch of this new site has us kicking back and resting on our laurels with our feet propped up over here at the office. Oh no, we have yet another treat in store. It is something the whole community will love. It has something for everyone, and everyone is going to want to be included. But, that’s enough information for now. I’ll tell you more next week.
    Got some free time next week? Check out the Community Calendar online. You can learn CPR and First Aid from the American Red Cross, become an adult literacy tutor, audition for a part in the upcoming musical Oklahoma and much more. There’s something for every day of the week. Go see for yourself!
    One event that I would like to bring to your attention is the Gaels of Music II concert of Irish music and dance on Tuesday night at the Emma Kelly Theater. It offers a great night of entertainment at a very reasonable price.. All proceeds from this concert will benefit the Eddie Ivey Scholarship for study in Ireland.
    Also, plan a trip to the Georgia Southern museum to see the coming exhibit of high-quality reproductions of murals by the Bogside Artists of Northern Ireland. The 11 murals will be on display during regular museum times from Sept. 17 to Jan. 6. Accompanying each mural is essential background information written by students in Dr. Steven Engel's Celtic Identity and Conflict course.
