Hinesville’s Georgia Cities Week celebration is reaching its peak as many public events are being offered through Saturday.
According to Vicki Davis, director of the Hinesville Downtown Development Authority, Wednesday will serve as both recognition of Earth Day and a public showcase of the city’s diverse public service vehicles including fire engines and street sweepers. Both events start at 3 p.m. in Bradwell park.
“We’re an ever changing community so our city services have much more activity than some other places,” Davis said. “We want to make people aware of all the good they do for the community.”
After playing in the sun all afternoon, the Kiwanis Club is inviting people to relax and restore their energy at an annual pancake dinner at Poole’s Deli. The dinner starts at 5:30.
Mayor Jim Thomas is scheduled to give his official state of Hinesville address as part of the celebration at a luncheon hosted by the Liberty County Chamber of Commerce on Thursday at 11:30 am.
“I’m going to be addressing the explosive growth that’s coming to the area and our efforts to manage the growth,” Thomas said.
Friday’s events will rock Hinesville residents all day long as the city is using the celebration to kick-off a series of concerts in the park. Music lovers, Davis said, are especially lucky this week as there will be a lunch and evening concert.
Saturday also has two events including a city-wide clean-up that starts at 8:30. And the Hinesville Police Department is hosting a Kids’ Safe Day at 10 a.m.
