There are many great reasons to call Athens, GA home.  Recently Athens, GA has won some great awards and had some really great press, so I thought it might be time to share some of them with you again!
9 Southern Towns You're Forgetting About But Shouldn't from Huffington Post  "Athens is known by different people for different things: to some, it's the birthplace of the B-52s and REM and a present-day killer music scene, to others it's the home of the University of Georgia. It's also just a really cool, walkable college town about 70 miles east of … (0 comments)

athens ga entertainment: Fall Fun Ahead for September 26 -27, 2008! An Athens, Georgia Daytrip Alert! - 09/18/08 05:01 PM

It's scarecrows, LOTS and LOTS of scarecrows.  I thought "Well, somebody got excited about decorating this fall".  Then about a half a mile down the road I see this:

Now I'm starting to feel like maybe I'm in the "The Twilight Zone" or a Stephen King movie and I'm the last human left on Earth with a bunch of scarecrows!  I'm getting a little more excited just a little further down the road:

athens ga entertainment: Athens, Georgia - Veterans Day Celebrations - 2007 - 11/06/07 05:32 PM
Veterans Day is Sunday, November 11, 2007.  The Federal Holiday will be taken on Monday, November 12, 2007.  My grandfather, Mr. Robert Chandler Ray, proudly served in World War II in the 134th Infantry Regiment.  On Veterans Day, he grows quiet as he thinks of the companions, friends and family he lost during the war.  I am blessed to have an Oral History that my son, Chris DeRepentigny, transcribed as part of a history project, because I was a girl...he didn't like to share his war stories with me.
