It amazes me how much there is to do in Atmore.
Since moving here in January, I've learned that you don't have to have a mall within a few blocks of home or a bowling alley to entertain you on Friday nights. All you need is dedicated community members that come together as one to make Atmore special to those that live here and visit.
It seems like almost every weekend the various organizations and friendly residents of this small, southern town have something planned for their fellow residents to do. Whether it's a welcome home ceremony for our beloved troops, a spring festival, a benefit singing or a church gathering, Atmore sure knows how to ensure its residents have something to do.
Saturday, the Atmore Area Chamber of Commerce will host its 14th annual Williams Station Day proving that the city has taken pride in holding festive celebrations for years. Not only do festivities such as Williams Station Day give the community something to do on a Saturday, but it also brings the community together as a whole to pay tribute to Atmore's rich history.
In today's edition of the Advance readers can thumb through the 14th annual Williams Station Day special tabloid edition, which features numerous stories on this year's event as well as a list of events, pictures from last year's event and of course advertisements from Atmore supportive businesses, which have made the edition possible since 1992 when the event was first celebrated.
The staff at the Advance put forth a lot of hard work and dedicated a lot of time into making the special section informative and entertaining to our readers.
Have a safe and happy Williams Station Day!
