The Harlem Globetrotters will bring their “Pushing the Limits” World Tour to Darlington on Monday, March 16, at 7 p.m. Tickets are now on sale at harlemglobetrotters.com. As part of the tour, the Globetrotters will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the four-point shot, a shot 30-feet from the basket which they introduced to the sport in 2010. The team will also bring back its popular “Magic Pass” pre-game event, which enables fans to come onto the court, meet their favorite Globetrotters for pictures and autographs, and even learn how to spin a ball on their finger just like the stars. The Harlem Globetrotters roster includes Big Easy Lofton, Hi-Lite Bruton, Hammer Harrison, Thunder Law, Bull Bullard and Cheese Chisholm – plus female stars TNT Lister, Torch George and more.
Today: Bluegrass and Blessings at Morrison Campground from 5-7 p.m. featuring Dixie Jubilee. Devotionals presented by Tracy Hardy and Brad Prater. Coffee and hot cocoa will be available for purchase. This is a free community event.
Floyd County DFCS hosts Holiday Blanket Drive: Donations will be provided to residents of our nursing facilities in Floyd County. New blankets and new throws are welcome and
appreciated. Dates donations accepted: Now through Dec. 14. Please drop them off at Floyd County DFCS office, 450 Riverside Parkway, Suite 110, Rome, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. (except holidays). Drop offs also will be accepted in the parking lot on Dec. 14. All too often, this demographic is forgotten as an important part of our society and it is our goal to provide each resident of all local nursing facilities with a blanket/throw and bring a bit of holiday cheer their way.
