Touted as “family fun” and an opportunity to “build community,” a “Color-A-Thon” occurred in Williston the second Saturday in March. Hosted by Joyce Bullock Elementary and Williston Elementary Schools, the fundraiser was the first of its kind in the area. With 436 people registered, the event raised $15,000 with a profit of around $9,000 to be divided between the two schools.
At the annual Williston Policeman/Firefighter Banquet held last Friday, Sgt. James Bond, left, was pre- sented the Police Officer of the Year award by Capt. Clay Connolly. Kenny Maddox, right center, was named Firefighter of the Year and received his award from Capt. Lake Raymond, Assistant Fire Chief Danny Wallace and Fire Chief Lamar Stegall. More honors in next week's edition of the Pioneer.
