Three ladies from the ACVB participated as Team Visit Augusta in the ESi Ironman 70.3 in Augusta, Ga. We were so proud of them! Peggy (pictured above), the cyclist for the team, shares her experience from the triathlon along with some fun pictures from last year.
Make plans to go downtown on September 30th to watch this year’s Ironman 70.3 – it’s super inspiring!
I got to see a random act of culture on the streets of Augusta this past Tuesday. A group from out of town called the 6th Floor Trio set up below the Imperial Theatre marquee and played for an hour before moving on to the Riverwalk to play some more. The concert was free and the trio encouraged anyone passing by on the street to stop and listen.
After a little research on the internet, I learned that people all over the United States are experiencing random acts of culture thanks to a grant program through the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. I’m talking opera performances in the Philadelphia Ikea, ballet performances at the Miami airport and brass quintet performances in the Macy’s in St. Paul. This movement is pretty cool and is kind of a big deal. I’ve got my fingers crossed that we see more random acts in Augusta very soon.
