Spring City-wide Clean-up Saturday

Litter CritterThe kick-off for our spring 2018 city-wide cleanup will be held on Saturday, March 24 at 8:00 a.m. in the Community Room in the Social Circle Public Safety Building.  This will be the 23rd regular cleanup event.

Everyone is invited.  Wear your work clothes.  Biscuits and coffee will be provided. This is a great opportunity for folks to meet and greet their friends and  neighbors before setting out to beautify our city.

If you or your organization cannot make it Saturday but want to help, please come by the Welcome Center one day this week and check out grabbers and pick up gloves and trash bags. All we ask is that you return your grabber and let us know how many bags of trash you were able to pick up so that we can include it in our reports.

See our map of Street Assignments. If you are not a member of a group that works on a specific area, feel free to choose an unassigned location.

Every year since 2007 residents of Social Circle meet to clean up our City on the Saturday before Easter Saturday and on the Saturday before our annual Friendship Festival.  Over the years we’ve had great support from Social Circle churches, businesses, civic groups, school and youth groups, neighborhood associations, and many others who continue to make this a successful event.

If your organization would like to adopt a street, please contact us at the Welcome Center (770-464-1866) or email AroundTheWell@SocialCircleGA.com.

Rotary Fair Update: It’s back on!

Good news for Social Circle!  Although the carnival ride vendor contracted for 2017 suffered a major health issue last month, he has assured the Rotary Club of Social Circle that he is equipped and ready to transport and set up the best rides this town has ever seen.

We regret the uncertainty recently cast upon the event, but are excited to be partnering with Carr Exposition to present the 14th Annual Social Circle Fair on the Social Circle Middle School/High School campus September 7 through September 10.

The bands are lined up, food vendors secured, and wristband tickets will go on sale in two weeks.  You may purchase your ticket for a $20.00 wristband by paying $15.00 in advance of the fair at Social Circle Ace, Bank of Social Circle, or Pinnacle Bank.

What a fun way to support your community and enjoy friends and fellowship!  There will be live entertainment and delicious fair food Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Remember that the proceeds from this event are used to provide scholarships to graduating SCHS seniors and monthly Ferst Foundation books to children from birth to 5 years old who reside in our school district. Rotary Club of Social Circle appreciates your patronage!
