MACON, Georgia(41NBC/WMGT) — Macon-Bibb County is planning to host several events next year in honor of the city’s 200th anniversary.
The Bicentennial Committee met for the first time on Wednesday to elect officers and pinpoint goals.
A total of 25 people are on the committee, which is comprised of community leaders and residents.
Alex Habersham and Wes Griffith were elected co-chairs during the meeting.
Habersham says the committee’s goal is to highlight the history, music and property of Macon-Bibb. He also wants to educate the youth on the community as it has evolved.
He acknowledges it will take a village to create unforgettable events.
“We even want individuals who are not businesses, organizations, group, fraternities, sororities, groups, non-profits, we want them to try to conceptualize some kind of activity to help memorialize 200 years of Macon-Bibb,” he said.
The committee will hold its second meeting on Tuesday, June 14.
