ACWORTHY HAPPENINGS


ACWORTH HONORS ARBOR DAY POSTER CONTEST WINNERS
On March 4, Mayor Tommy Allegood and Alderman Butch Price presented a proclamation to Sylvia Flanagan of the Acworth Tree Commission in recognition of Acworth's 33rd year of being a Tree City by the National Arbor Day Foundation. The Tree City USA program recognizes cities for their excellence in urban forestry management, and Acworth is one of more than 3,000 Tree City USA's.  Every year, the Acworth Tree Commission sponsors a poster contest for residents to celebrate our trees. In the past, this art contest has only been open to schools. This year, the City opened the contest to artists of all ages to "Bring Their Favorite Tree to Life."  The contest was divided by age group and winners were recognized in each category. Ms. Flanagan presented available winners with certificates at the celebration. The winning artwork will be on display at the Acworth Community Center throughout the month of March.

ACWORTH CELEBRATES THE LEGACY OF MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. WITH UNITY WALK & CEREMONY

IMG_4568
On Monday, January 18, 2021, the City of Acworth held its annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service Celebration. Despite brisk January weather, many in the community participated in a Unity Walk lead by our Acworth Achievers. The Unity Walk was followed by a ceremony featuring speaker Earnest Davis and readings from Acworth Achievers Lisa Thiongo and Ben Nganga that explored "life's most persistent and urgent question, 'What are you doing for others?'"
