CGTCF’s holds fundraiser
The Central Georgia Technical College Foundation hosted a Casino Night Fundraiser at Idle Hour Country Club in Macon. More than 100 people attended. The event raised more than $17,000 in its debut.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the CGTC Foundation for projects, including student scholarships and textbook assistance programs.
Program offers tree recycling
The Christmas tree round-up will take place Jan. 10 on Maple Street near the Warner Robins Recreation Department. Recycle a Christmas tree from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. and receive a free seedling.
Trees will be chipped into mulch and used to keep city parks green and beautiful. Others will be deposited in area lakes and streams to improve the habitat of fish.
Christmas trees also may be dropped near the water tower on Maple Street any time after Christmas, but free seedlings will only be available Jan. 10.
