March – April 2018
Have you ever heard someone say there’s just nothing to do in Waycross? Well I’m proud to be part of several organizations that are doing a lot in Waycross.
March is a big month for the Okefenokee Heritage Center. We do one big fundraiser a year to raise money for our summer camp programs, The Color Run. This year we are going to be doing a drama camp, courtesy of Purlie Productions, in June and an Art Camp in July. All of the money raised for the Color Run goes right back into our community to support our artists. This year the Color Run is the Saturday before Easter, March 31st, and all registrations and sponsorships are tax deductible. You can help your community and your accountant at the same time.

We have a lot going on at the OHC as usual. Model Railroading – What if you could control the trains? Well, first of all, I know there would be zero traffic congestion anywhere in Southeast Georgia. But really, what if you could control the trains?…
Happy Holidays! With the holidays comes worries and fretting as we run here, there, and everywhere, but now is a time for celebrations. Celebrating our homes, our hopes, and our heritage.
