Parks & Rec hosts Adult Field Day

Field Day…Ah the memories. Team t-shirts, 50 yard dash, tug of war, over under; all on the hottest day of the school year, of course. But what if you could experience that elementary school fun as an adult? I think you see where this is going… You CAN!

On May 16, Parks & Rec will host the 2nd Annual Adult Field Day at Luther William Field. Our events are top secret, but you and your team can expect to participate in events such as dizzy bat relays, egg toss, flip cup, and an obstacle course. In addition to this day of nostalgia, you will also get to enjoy giveaways, crown competitions, and live music. Check out MaconBibbTV’s coverage of last year’s Adult Field Day by clicking here.

Male mentors needed in Macon-Bibb

ommissioner Al Tillman and Mentors Project Executive Director June O’Neal put out a community challenge on Thursday, March 19 for males to mentor youth in Macon-Bibb County. According to Mrs. O’Neal, there are children asking for mentors so they can graduate and go to college or the military.

“We have almost 40 young men waiting for someone to step forward and help them be successful; these are young men that are looking for guidance and help from us,” said Mrs. O’Neal. “An hour a week can make all the difference in a child’s life. It’s up to us, the adults, to help them find their dreams.”

Electric bus considered for Second Street Corridor

In 2011, Macon began a planning for the redevelopment and revitalization of the Second Street Corridor as a “multi-modal spine” from East Macon and I-16, through Downtown, past Mercer University, and to I-75. It would connect residential areas, businesses, universities, medical facilities, and government facilities to each other while linking two regionally significant facilities, I-16 and I-75.
