Groups come together to recognize persons of the year
Citizens in Macon County came together Tuesday night at the county’s extension center to honor their respective community development associations. The groups were extremely appreciative of the Macon County Board of Commissioners for their support, and they were also grateful to have the opportunity to come together and celebrate all of their hard work.
The community development associations began in the 1950s and have been going strong ever since. The associations do a variety of different things in their communities, including fund raisers for people in need, scholarship awards, beautification projects, road clean-ups, musical events, and historic renovations among other things.
