Thomaston Sertoman Russ Bridges (center) shakes hands with Upson County Manager Jim Wheeless (left) and Thomaston City Councilman Don Greathouse (right) after they signed declarations naming February 17-21, 2014 at Sertoma Freedom Week. Due to the ice storm, the declarations were not signed until last Thursday, with Wheeless signing for Commission Chairman Rusty Blackston and Greathouse signing for Mayor Hays Arnold. Sertoma celebrates Presidents Day (Feb. 17) each year by visiting 4th grade classes at Upson-Lee North Elementary, talking about the Declaration of Independence, and handing out copies of it to the students. Thomaston Sertoma members will be at ULNE this Thursday to continue the tradition.
