Leon County Commissioners Celebrate the Grand Opening of Orange Avenue with a Block Party and Community Parade

Leon County celebrated the Grand Opening of Orange Avenue on Saturday, Nov. 4, 2006, with a block party, which included a free lunch provided by Sandco, Inc., a ribbon cutting ceremony, and a community parade. The event took place on Orange Avenue, next to the Greater Love Church of God in Christ.

Chairman Bill Proctor proclaimed that it was a proud day for the community, and pledged that the improvements to Orange Avenue would bring value to the Southside.

After the ribbon cutting ceremony, the Rickards High School Band led the parade, and community members of all ages were invited to participate. People walked, rode their bicycles, pulled wagons and pushed strollers down to the Jim Lee Road roundabout and back.
