Letter to the Editor for Wed., May 8, 2019

Dear Editor

I did my first volunteering at the Alabama Bicentennial Exhibit at The Club on Highway 21 just north of Atmore on May 5.

If you have not already visited this exhibit I want to encourage you to do so sometime during the month of May.

I was blown away by the professionalism that is reflected in this display and the information that is shared, the photographs and the history of our city, county and state.

An enormous thank you goes out to Dana Vickrey, Nancy Karrick, Linda Ellison, Andrew Garner, Ann Peacock Gordon, and the Atmore Historical Society for making this happen. I am sure I have left some people out of the thank you and for those I did not mention your effort in this endeavor is greatly appreciated.

Please take a few minutes out of your busy schedule and come learn something about the history of our great state of Alabama and the local people that have in the past become a part of that history.  You will not be disappointed.  Atmore is the only city in Escambia County to host this traveling exhibit.  Please don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn more about our history.  The exhibit is free and the hours that it is open is displayed on a sign in front of the Club.

And most of all, Happy 200th Birthday Alabama.
