2013 Keep Macon-Bibb
Cherry Blossom Festival
Today I attended this Luncheon which honored the many Volunteers that Keep Macon-Bibb Beautiful and also those who help with the Cherry Blossom Festival. Shown above is the young Mister Cherry Blossom with whom I had the honor to share a table with.
The Luncheon started with the rendition of "America the Beautiful" performed by the Central Charger Glee Club of Macon, Georgia. This teriffic group is directed by Isaac Gibson.
There was a total of twenty-four awards presented in connection with keeping/helping Macon and Bibb look beautiful. I was most impressed with the individual who received the "Youth of the Year" award. He is in the fifth grade at Sonny Carter Elementary School and his name is Marquis D' Andre B. Peek. As he was presented his award it was announced that he alone was responsible for collecting 500 pounds of items to be recycled.
Shown here with Marquis is the Cherry Blossom Queen, Miss Hannah Moore and Princess, Miss Kiara Fuller. I captured this picture after the Awards Ceremony.
