Art in Park moved to Sunday

Other Grove Hill weekend events unchanged



     The threat of bad weather Saturday is putting a damper on some of Grove Hill’s “Small Town Reunion” activities.

Art in the Park, a show and sale featuring artisans from the area and region, has been moved from Saturday to Sunday due to the weather threat Saturday. Sunday is supposed to be clear.

The event will be held from 1 until 5 p.m. in the Courthouse Square and Carleton Park area.

It is a project of the Grove Hill Arts Council.

Clarke County High School’s Old Timers Reunion, an annual event, is still set for 10 a.m. at CCHS. There will be a covered dish luncheon around noon.

The “Photography In Your Own Backyard” exhibit and the “Gates” painting exhibit is still set Saturday at the Cultural Arts Center and an adjacent location. The photo exhibit is from 9 until 4 with award presentations at 2 p.m.

Also at 2 p.m. at the Clarke County Museum, author Ted Dunagan will be signing copies of “Secret of the Satilfa,” a sequel to “A Yellow Watermelon.”

Sunday events include the Clarke County Historical Society meeting at 2:30 p.m. at the Grove Hill Senior Center with Dr. David Mathews giving a history of Grove Hill.

After the meeting, a historical plaque and the Grove Hill Walking Trail marker will be dedicated.

The photo exhibit will continue Sunday from 1 until 5 with the People’s Choice awards announced at 4 p.m.

There is a good chance of severe weather, including rain and thunderstorms, hail, strong winds and possible tornadoes Saturday.

Citizens are urged to take precautions if they are out and about Saturday.

The weather system is supposed to move quickly through the area with clear skies predicted Sunday.
