Team member Nick Potts, who visited the Heifer International ranch with the First Presbyterian youth group as a teen, explained why goats are so important in helping the hungry and relieving poverty.

Donnie Clay, coordinator for Pickin’ on the Square released a statement regarding the start date for Pickin’ and the location.

“Well, it’s that time again. Time for Pickin’ on the Square. I’m ready and hope you are, too. This year the location of Pickin’ will be changed to the Town Hall. There are to be some great renovations to be done to the gazebo starting in July. We have done several events at the town hall parking before and they were good.

“Pickin’ is scheduled to begin May 11. We have a great schedule for this year, some new acts, acts you have requested back, and some great dancers. Look for the schedule in next week’s Macon County News.”
