Sunday: One Community United presents “One Table 2019” along the Chief John Ross Pedestrian Bridge in Downtown Rome at 6 p.m. A few tickets remain as of Thursday night. Join us as we sit together at one table to promote the Rome community. Locally grown and produced dinner will be brought to the table to honor our local farms and chefs while we get to know our neighbors. Proceeds, after expenses, will go to One Community United to continue to be a source of information and outreach to our communities through community events, dialogue and communications leading to improved relationships between communities and educational programs within communities.
