It’s turning out to be another big spring weekend in the city.
On Sunday, you can be part of Peachtree City’s history by attending the unveiling and dedication of Peachtree City Founders’ Corner at the city hall plaza at 2 p.m.
The city will be dedicating sculptures of two of Peachtree City’s founding fathers - first Mayor Joel Cowan and financier and developer Floy Farr. The busts were done by Georgia sculptor Andy Davis. There will also be the first of six plaques providing a timeline to the city’s history, both before and after its incorporation in 1959.
This project was undertaken to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Peachtree City’s founding, and will mark the city’s progress as we continue to our centennial celebration in 2059. Bring the family and decide how you will make history in Peachtree City.
The display was made possible by several major donors and sponsors, including; The Rotary Club of Peachtree City, The Floy Farr family, Coweta-Fayette EMC, Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, Global Aviation Holdings, Edgar and Mary Chapman, Dr. Gordon Fleming, Betsy Tyler, Scott Bradshaw, Frederick Brown, Jr., Paula and Dan Dougherty, Hollis Harris, Mrs. Dolly Morgan, Jim and Marilyn Royal, Iola Snow, Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Thomas, Steve and Jan Boone, Steve Brown, Floy Far Rotary Foundation, Wayne Griffin, W.W. “Bud” Jones, Larry and Frances Meaders, Dan Tennant, David and Alicia Conner, Katherine H.
