Baxley Mayor Steve Rigdon has signed a proclamation for the month of April – May 2 to be designated as Paint The Town Purple Month in honor of all cancer survivors for what they have gone through and still going through. We are celebrating their life. So if you would like to honor someone, we will be promoting this by selling purple bows for $10.00 a bow. If you would like to purchase a bow to display at your business, mailbox, or etc., please call 366-9668 or 367-2913. Thanks for your support!
