When Hahira Police Cpl. Todd Pitchford is responding to a call, he is never alone. Beside him is his sidekick, his canine companion, 6-year-old Rojo.
There will be horse and carriage rides, a D.J., cookies and punch and ornament decorating, said Jennifer Price, Hahira Main Street director.
Mayor Bruce Cain said he is proud of how the city consistently comes together. “It’s just something that the community can be proud of because no matter what goes on, we always stick together,” he said.
Faith leaders and law-enforcement officers will come together this week for a common purpose, to show unity within the local community.
With the theme “Georgia’s Cities: Building the 2020 Vision,” the observance gives cities the chance to share information regarding services they offer to people while also providing an inside glance into city operations and how cities impact residents' quality of life, according to a statement released from Hahira Main Street this week.
Participants will receive a list of local clean-up sites, a map of city parks and an information sheet detailing sites where trash bags can be dropped off once they are full, said Jennifer Price, interim executive director of Hahira Main Street.
