November tasks: Potlucks, honor seniors

Published 9:20pm Monday, November 4, 2013

November kicks off three new tasks for the Brewton Reborn project, which asks residents to look at new ways to improve our community.

This month’s activities:

• Fix it even if you didn’t break it.

“Find something around your neighborhood to fix, and send us a picture,” said Connie Baggett, director of program management for the city of Brewton. “Lend a hand where you can this month as a great way to show gratitude.”

• Have potlucks.

Brewton Reborn will even sponsor a “Rock the Dock” each Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. at The Hourglass downtown. Residents can bring a potluck dish, drinks and a lawn chair to enjoy fellowship and live music at the Hourglass’ loading dock.

“Plan your own potluck events this month and let us know how they went,” Baggett said.

• Honor elders.

Baggett said the city is asking residents to send nominations for a series of interviews in which mature residents tell stories to younger generations.

“City Hall will feature a “Wall of Fame” honoring our own greatest generation here in town,” Baggett said.

Residents can call 809-1777 to nominate their favorite mature citizens.
