February 9, 2017: Habersham County School System Scripps Spelling Bee
January - April: One Book Habersham - All around the country for the last decade people have been coming together to build community through stories. Habersham County has joined this national movement with One Book Habersham. Each year people throughout Habersham County Georgia are invited to read and share the same picture book. This year we are reading One Cool Friend, by Toni Buzzeo. Books are available throughout the community for you to read. Public libraries and schools will have copies for lending. Look for them in banks, restaurants, businesses, and other places where people gather. Read a copy, sign your name inside the book, share it with a friend, talk about it with your neighbors, and help us build community through this story. Need a copy to read, sign and share? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
April 6: Make plans to help us give Toni a Habersham County welcome by attending the free community event. An informal Meet and Greet will be held at The Commons at Piedmont College at 7:00pm on Thursday, April 6th, 2017. Stop by to introduce yourself, meet others who have read the book, and enjoy refreshments.(You don’t want to miss the penguin and bow tie cookies created by the Culinary Arts Program at Tallulah Falls School!)The Commons is located at 375 Georgia St. in Demorest.
