Saturday, February 3rd -- Dickey Bridge Marker Unveiling
      At 11:30 a,m, on Saturday, February 3: 2018 the Society will unveil the Site Marker for the Dickey Bridge.
      As discussed last spring in the Taylor Press, the Bridge was built by concerned citizens, largely from the African-American community. Dr. Janes Lee Dickey energized the community to collect the money to build the bridge so TGAT students did not have to wade through the creek to attend their segregated school.
      Everyone is invited to the short ceremony. The marker for bridge is accessible from the Hike and Bike Trail in Fannie Robinson Park. The parking lot in the Park is only a short walk from the marker and bridge
