Benefit Concert for Decatur Education Foundation This Sunday
Two Benefit concerts for the Decatur Education Foundation live at Eddie's Attic featuring Caroline Herring, Kodac Harrison, Sydney Rhame & Diane Durrett on Sunday, August 8.

The Decatur Education Foundation works to help Decatur youth realize their full potential, not only in the classroom but also through learning experiences that contribute to personal development.

They do this by generating financial support from individuals and organizations, awarding grants and administering scholarships, and engaging the community to contribute their time and talents to activities that ultimately benefit Decatur's youth.

Decatur Farmers Market - Stop by for Seasonal Produce
The Decatur Farmers Market is a gathering space that supports organic, local, and sustainable foods in Georgia. This market provides the Decatur community with the opportunity to buy from and speak directly with the local farmers and food producers who offer goods produced by sustainable methods.

Buying locally and organically produced food protects ecological integrity, supports regional economies and decreases our dependence on nonrenewable resources.

Stop by on Wednesdays from 4–7pm (Commerce & Church St.) and/or Saturdays from 9–12noon (Trinity Pl. & N. McDonough St.)

Decatur Bulldog Boosters Calling All Sponsors
The Decatur Bulldog Boosters (DBB) is a volunteer group who are dedicated to fulfill the uniform, equipment, and student recognition award needs for all 25 teams representing Renfroe Middle and Decatur High Schools.

The DBB would like to invite the business community to join us in supporting these fine student athletes. We raise money through advertising sales in sports programs and on the video scoreboard at the stadium. Our annual goal is to raise and contribute $125,000 to the athletic department but our ultimate goal is to see to it that no student athlete has to pay to play any sport.
