Athens-Concord Town Social: Entertainment Announced

Athens, W.Va. - Plans are underway for the 16th Annual Athens-Concord Town Social–an exercise in down-home friendliness! The Town Social will be held Sunday, August 11, 2002 on the Concord College campus from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Town Social Planning Committee expects from 600 to 800 local residents and visitors to show up for the free food and fun.

Music for 2002 Announced

Sarcus and Ed Hartman’s Midnight Ramblers will provide musical entertainment. Visitors will hear blue grass, old-time and modern music, too. Both groups are back by popular demand!

Call for Exhibitors/Crafters

Craftspeople are invited to participate in the event, which is free to them, too! Town Social organizers will provide tables, chairs and a limited number of electrical connections.

The Town of Athens and Concord College jointly plan the social, which is traditionally held on the second Sunday of each August. The goal of the Town Social is to provide an opportunity for residents of the Town of Athens and surrounding areas, the Concord community and visitors to socialize in a small-town setting.
