Georgia’s State Parks and Historic Sites are getting into that holiday spirit with a host of activities through the New Year.
This year has been one of substantial economic growth for Rome and Floyd County, attests Al Hodge, President and CEO of the Rome-Floyd Chamber, who refers to 2017 as a “Chamber Year”.
It’s almost time for the ‘Gold Ball’, y’all! The 64th annual Seven Hills Rotary Rome News-Tribune Holiday Festival Basketball Tournament will be held December 18th through 22nd. Boys’ and girls’ basketball teams from 10 area high schools will compete in the tournament at Georgia Highlands and Berry Colleges.
College basketball will return to the airwaves of 95.7 FM The Ridge tonight as Georgia Tech hits the road to face Wofford. Tip off is slated for 7 pm; air time is 6:30 pm.
Donations are wanted for “Santa for Seniors”, an initiative co-ordinated by the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office and Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation with the goal of helping less fortunate seniors in Rome and Floyd County to have a Merry Christmas.
