2018 marks the 200th anniversary of the founding of Walton County. The year-long festivities will begin January 30 at the Historic Courthouse in Monroe, where the mayors of the cities of Between, Good Hope, Jersey, Loganville, Monroe, Social Circle, and Walnut Grove will present a new Walton County flag to Walton County Chairman Kevin Little and the Walton County Board of Commissioners. In the days leading up to the event, the flag will be flown in each of the cities in the county starting with Loganville on Tuesday, January 23.

Social Circle will welcome the flag on Saturday, January 27 at 11:00 at a ceremony at City Hall as the flag is raised on the flag pole. The flag will travel from Jersey to Social Circle where it will fly until Sunday afternoon at which time there will be another ceremony as the flag is lowered in preparation for its trip to Good Hope by train.
