The Mount Gilead Concerned Citizens and Community Watch will have a walk-a-thon Sat., Mar. 16. It is set to start at 9:00 a.m. at Stanback Park on E. Allenton St. and follow a two-mile route that goes through town and ends up back at the park.
Group president Johnny Greene said, “We will start at Stanback Park, walk around to Sunset Ave., and return to the park the back way. We will have refreshments along the way, and someone to pick you up if you give out.”
Everyone is invited, and any money raised through sponsorships and registrations will be used to help pay expenses for organization projects.
“This affair is for our Christmas dinner for seniors and our National Night Out,” said Greene. “We hope everyone can participate.”
Information on the Concerned Citizens walk-a-thon is available from Mount Gilead Town Hall at 910-439-5111.
