There is a parade uptown this morning.
Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Wednesday, Nov. 11, 2015:
If you’re on your way to class reading this, think twice, and consider heading Uptown.
It’s Veterans Day. There are no classes, and the city is putting on a parade to recognize those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces.
It’ll start at about 10 a.m. today on Morris Avenue, wind through uptown Athens and end at the Civil War Monument on College Green.
Athens Mayor Paul Wiehl is slated to give a speech at the monument at 11 a.m. You might want to go to that, as your opportunities to see Wiehl speak are dwindling, given a new mayor was elected last week.
