We are so excited to spy one of our team in this week’s Tifton Grapevine! That’s right – Paige Harrell, who you may recognize from our Main Branch, is competing in this year’s Dancing Stars of Southwest Georgia to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.
This year’s benefit will be held at the UGA Tifton Campus Conference Center on Saturday, May 10th at 6:30 PM.
If you remember from last year, Daryl Salter competed in the same benefit and WON! So grab your pompoms and get to cheering for Paige, because we can’t wait to see her groove and of course, bring home the trophy!
