FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — At their Aug. 16 meeting, the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners proclaimed Sept. 3-7 as Civic Participation Week in Forsyth County.
Civic Participation Week serves to encourage residents to participate in their community by volunteering their time and talent, contributing to worthy organizations or causes, communicating their ideas and voting.
"During this week, American democracy and civic participation will be showcased in honor of the courageous spirit of the American people, and tribute will be paid to those souls lost in the fight for freedom of the American people," Forsyth County Commission Chairman Jim Boff read from the resolution.
