Fall display placed in front of Ellaville City Center
A lovely fall display has been placed in front of the Ellaville City Center which was made by women of the Ellaville Rainbow Garden Club just in time for  all of our upcoming events in October.
The women of the Garden Club that made this fall design were Carol Streetman, Anne Brock, Carlene Beckwith, Mary Ellen McCorkle, and Darlene Lewis.
The design consists of hay bales, pumpkins, scarecrows, large sunflowers, ribbons with glitter, leaves of all colors, and much more.
This special display goes well with all the flags and banners that the City has put up on the light poles downtown around the business area, the square and park. The City places different banners several times of the year.
