Part III - Winterville, GA | Where Music, Art and Public Service Intersect



Part 3 in a series of Winterville, Georgia focused videos, Mayor Dodd Ferrelle shares how he rediscovered his love for music, the arts and performing through his public service. Through music, he's found a way to help rebuild the Winterville Auditorium, establish a new revenue stream for the city he loves, and partner with the Fox Theatre Institute to accomplish this feat.

The Mayor's Musings

Community Garden Potluck

The Community Gardens registration potluck will be held on Monday, February 17, at 6 p.m., at Winterville City Depot.

It would be very helpful if anyone who is not planning on gardening with us for the 2020-2021 year could please let us know.  A very brief reply to this email would be great!  I know a few of you have told me already, but a double-check would be good.  You do, of course, have until the end of February to have your garden box(es) ready for a new gardener.

Tree Commission Meeting

The Tree Commission will be holding an informational/interest meeting about a potential new tree care volunteer education program at the Depot on Monday, January 27, 2020, at 6:30 p.m. (thirty minutes before the Town Hall meeting). The aim of this program is to develop a team of knowledgeable Winterville residents who will be able to assist other residents and the City with their tree management.  

This Winterville Tree Steward program will focus on a broad range of topics, covering all aspects of tree care and maintenance.

Winterville Town Hall

MONDAY, JANUARY 27 AT 7 PM

Please join us to kick off the new year and discuss all things Winterville. We will be joined by representatives from the Board of Elections who will demonstrate the new voting machines being put in service this year.

 

Following the demonstration we will discuss the Charter Amendment regarding Beer and Wine in the City, the Farmers Market, FFT and Dollar General Project updates etc. The Tree Commission will be on hand for a quick presentation as well. Don't miss this one!
