Hispanic Heritage Celebrated at Drake Field

The long awaited Hispanic Heritage Festival took place last Saturday at Drake Field.

Originally scheduled for October, which is Hispanic Heritage Month, Saturday's event proved that Hispanic heritage can be celebrated any day of the year.

People packed Drake Field where they danced to vibrant live music, visited rows of vendors, and sampled tasty treats from a fleet of food trucks serving flavorful food inspired by the Hispanic community.

To keep up with future events, check out the city calendar.

Millage Rate Changes Over Last 10 Years

Annually, the Peachtree City Mayor and Council adopts a millage rate. This is the tax rate you pay for each $1,000 of your home’s assessed value, which is 40% of its fair market value.

Fayette Senior Services Brings Holiday Hope!

Fayette County Senior Services hope they can bring another round of cheer to our aging residents this holiday season.

Community partners and other individuals come together and provide around 100 local seniors with presents. It's called "Hope for the Holidays."

“The purpose of Hope for the Holidays is to spread holiday cheer to seniors who are financially challenged, shut-in, or lonely and who may otherwise not have any gifts this holiday season," Fayette Senior Services case manager Iris Harris said.

"Hope for the Holidays" is like the popular gift exchange, "Secret Santa."

Ornaments hang on Christmas trees at Senior Services offices in Fayetteville and Peachtree City. Each ornament includes a wish from a senior. People can come by, choose an ornament, and buy that gift. Volunteers then wrap the presents and deliver them along with a bag of fresh fruit.

This is the tenth consecutive year of "Hope for the Holidays."

Those wanting to buy a gift for Fayette's seniors can drop by the agency's Fayetteville and Peachtree City locations, and pick an ornament. The deadline to return gifts is Wednesday, November 30, 2022.

For more details, email Morgan Lanier at mlanier@fayss.org or give her a call at 770-769-8430.
