23rd reunion of the USS Macon

On Thursday, May 25, people that served on the USS Macon held their 23rd reunion at various locations throughout the city. This was the second time they had held the reunion here. You can see pictures from their visit to Government Center by clicking here.

During their visit, they spent time at the Washington Library studying artifacts and articles before traveling to Government Center to see the replica of the ship on display and to meet with Mayor Reichert. To thank him for hosting them, they presented him with a piece of planking from the USS Macon and official reunion shirt, hat, pen, and lapel pin. Organizers noted there were two men in the group who helped commission the USS Macon in 1945. 

Animal rescue groups hosting Happy Tails Adoption Event

On Saturday, June 4, Macon-Bibb County Animal Welfare and partners will hold the first Happy Tails Adoption Event from 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. at the shelter (4214 Fulton Mill Road). People can come to the shelter to see what animals are available for adoption there and with several local rescue groups, including Peach County Animal Rescue, Pawsome Southern Rescue, Gentle Gians, All About Animals, Pixel, and Furever After.

“We wanted to open our doors to the general public and show them what great animals there are at Animal Welfare and with our local and regional rescue groups,” says Director Sonja Adams. “I want to thank our partners in the rescue community for their continued support and for being part of this event. Our entire staff is looking forward to helping host more of these throughout the year as we work together to find permanent homes for these animals.”
