Several upcoming events were discussed at the recent Long County Chamber of Commerce April business meeting.
Chamber President Don Melton said the third annual Law Day Celebration would be on May 13 at the Long County Courthouse. Sheriff Craig Nobles, Superior Court Clerk Sherry Long and State Court Judge Jeff Arnold are organizing it. According to Arnold, President Dwight Eisenhower established the first Law Day in 1958 to mark the nation’s commitment to the rule of law. Congress passed a proclamation honoring the day in 1961.
Melton said there would also be a Portrait Memorial Dedication Service in the courtroom in conjunction with Law Day. He said that several portraits would be unveiled.
Melton said that everyone is invited. For more information or to RSVP, call Long at 912-543-2123 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Long County School Superintendent Dr. Robert Waters also told members that a strategic planning session would begin at 6 p.m. May 8 at Long County High School. The meeting will get public opinion on the school system and how it can improve. He said the information would be used to plan the direction of the school system.
